Our forefathers were clever people and when establishing a homestead, shelter, rather than â€œthe viewâ€ was uppermost in their minds.... typical of that thinking is Loughbeg farm : secludes in the low lands, while â€œthe viewâ€ is aplenty, north, south, east and west from the high lands that rise up from the homestead towards the souâ€™west and the sun !
Today the homestead is on a grander scale than that of the ancestors, the main house , while incorporating the charm of the old home, is much more that of a family home; and there is a two bedroomed guest cottage, adjacent , but not too close for comfort; while the mechanics of the workings of the farm are housed in an all purpose modern building .
Delightful place to rear a family, retire to, just grow old enjoying the peace and quiet in a rural setting.
