Richard Ball - Your Delightful Tour Guide

Ireland is an incredible little country especially when you know where to go, and I get huge satisfaction in bringing guests around, showing it off in all its beauty. I have brought groups all over the land, people of every age from young babies to Octogenarians, sometimes in the same group, and have always managed to adapt the tours to suit their exact needs. I strongly believe that, above all, the guest must always be put first.'

Barbara Ball - Your Friendly Hostess

Johnfort House is a beautiful place to live and work. I feel very lucky that our children are being brought up in the countryside, on a farm and that for the most part it is my place of work. I am also a teacher and teach two days a week. Since we started the accommodation in the courtyard we have met wonderful people and Johnsfort is an exciting place to live as there is always someone new coming to stay.
