Hello there Daniel and Mossy,first of all let me say everything that you are doing is just fantastic, I myself have wanted to do exactly what you're doing all my life and had the exact childhood you spoke of ..I've recently returned from the uk after 5 years in the rat race ,I have experience working with stone (4 years)and some woodworking skills ..and love gardening and basically anything outdoors..so I offer to you my help, I live in co kerry at the moment but would happily travel up to Sligo on the odd weekend if you need me
.if I cant afford to buy a cottage myself I'd at least love to help someone like you realize that dream

Just discovered your channel, best of luck with everything! I left Ireland 5 years ago for the US and am in the process of moving back, I often see these types of cottages when trawling the housing sites, the one my great grandparents lived in is still just about standing

You are young enough to tackle all the work so good luck and keep posting your progress.

watching your videos makes me long for this way of life even more…So inspiring!
Check out this channel,( Bealtaine Cottage,) this lady bought a cottage 14 years ago in the west of Ireland too.
When can we see inside your cosy cottage?

I was really excited to find your video. We are currently in the process of packing up our life in the UK to do exactly the same thing; jump off the hamster wheel and start living and not just existing to pay someone else. It's really inspiring to see you making a go of it. We're not brave enough to do the ruined house, but we're assuming a large amount of diy will be required. The very best of luck to you and please keep up the vlog.

Great video, good honest talk. I have many questions, if you don't mind.
What are your highest expenses, ie taxes, petrol, food, ect
How big, population wise is your county, and what type or volume of crime do you have?
How far do you have to travel for building/farming materials, and how would you judge the prices (here in the USA a simple pressure treated 2"x4"x8' is around $7.00)

I know I ask too many questions, but I am on a big coffee buzz this morning
I am subscribed and following,
thank you

My dream is to live in a little cottage in Ireland. Iā€™m very drawn to that country and I put it down to my ancestry. Also living the simple life is something T aspire to. We are such a throwaway society and I want to go back to how my Grandparents lived by growing their own food, simple cooking, and no clutter that has no purpose in my home. Good luck to you!
