You will find an orchard we planted years ago and a meadow of wildflowers. The plants and flowers were chosen for their utilities to encourage butterflies and birds visiting the garden.
We garden organically, limiting the impact on the environment, we use cleaning products environmentally friendly, encouraging recycling and provide Irish handmade soaps.
We try to support local farmers and businesses by buying only local produce for welcome packs, which include free-range eggs, local sausages and bacon, Irish Oats cereals, milk and butter Clonakilty handmade. We bake our own bread, jams or marmalade in the welcome pack.
There are lovely walks around, such as an abandoned village overlooking the Atlantic and Loch Ine (Lough Hyne) - first marine nature reserve of Ireland. Baltimore, you can take a ferry to the islands of Sherkin and Cape Clear (bird sanctuary) and even the Fastnet Rock.
Baltimore itself is a small fishing village and a lively marina with lots of good restaurants. Previous guests have enjoyed driving along the coast to visit the different secluded beaches and bays or experience the mink Cape Head and numerous peninsulas sometimes inspiring fear during storms and for the most adventurous mountain to Sight the Lady overlooking the lakes of Killarney.
Other activities such as diving, fishing off the dock in Baltimore for mackerel and avid photographers have captured the spectacular scenery and for those interested in the history of the region.

“ We've had a lovely week staying in the Gallery. Mostly good weather, lots of interesting new places to visit. The accommodation is warm and very comfortable and thank you, Joan, for the welcome pack - and we hope your raised beds are productive after all your hard work! ” Jan and Stewart 2016-05-29 10:13:59
“ We stayed for 3 nights and happily would have stayed longer. Not only is the property stunning, but its ambiance is unparralled. Joan is an incredible host and made our stay truely memorable. Even her dog is adorable! Can't wait to come back. ” Aisling and Eamonn
My wife and I recently stayed here for a long weekend break away. We were not dissapointed. From the moment I made the booking Joan was available to answer my many questions and provide very helpful information. We stayed in the gallery and it really does have everything you could possibly need for a long or short stay. We cooked in one night and made breakfast everyday. The collection of books is amazing. The welcome pack of produce was very good and very tasty. It lasts for a few days which is above and beyond what you would expect to get from a holiday rental. Location is perfect with fantastic views. We walked in and out of Baltimore regurlarly. It is about 3.5kms, a nice walk down hill on the way and slightly up hill on the way back!
