Risteard is an amazing host and his house is such a lovely and friendly place! He knows all about healthy food, made us amazing breakfast and taught how to bake the Best (and easiest) bread ever! Sun morning he gave us a ride to Glendalough wich was very nice and helped us to Save a lot of Time! And you definitely need to meet Trigger - the cutest dog Ever :D I would definitely recommend this place to everyone who looks for not only room to sleep over but for a place where you want to feel like home :) AirBnB Reviews
I came from Germany and stayed at Risteards for two weeks. In those two weeks I learned more about good Energy and a healthy Food Circle, than I did in the last 3 years, working in a hotel in my Hometown. He gave me great Tips and helped me to create my own little business on Udemy.com, all within a couple of days. The way Risteard looks at Life and how he enjoys it to the fullest in the simplest way, we all could learn a lot from him. I'm very grateful for the experience I earned and I'm proud to call this genius my Mentor. His hospitality is on another level, and his dog Trigger will welcome everyone who takes a little Time out of their day to pet him.
So me and my Gifirend from Korea arrived here just for a nights rest , but Risteard place took us by surprise. He is a fantastic host, above and beyond not because he has to, that's just the way he is down to earth outstanding person. He is a chef so we decided to take the cooking class the next day as we had time. Money well spent an outstanding experience. Learned so much. It's what learing in school should have being like. Highly recommend this place if you are travelling around.
The food was great, the company was better. Risteard treated us to a smoothie, two soups, homemade bread, potato cake, cucumber salad (which was amazing), pizza, and a custard desert. His instructions were practical and mixed with jokes, and stories. I picked up several tips that I plan to employ in my own kitchen. We sat down and ate the food as it was ready. It felt as if we were having dinner at a close friend’s house, if your friend was a comical chef. Truly enjoyed my experience.
Risteard has a genuine interest in health and positive living. His home is not perfect but then life isn't either! I loved the food and the dinner table conversations, the smell of lavender on my pillow and the relaxing music as I drifted off to sleep! Staying in Risteard's home was a unique ad interesting experience. He lives and works from an authentic heart.
Risteard was very welcoming and enthusiastic. He demonstrated how to make several tasty and healthy plant based dishes in quick time, and they were all easily achievable for beginners which was great. A novel cuisine experience, one that you will not leave with an empty stomach!
