About Michael Wood
I moved to Ireland from London in 1998. Having searchd for the ideal place to build a home we settled on a lovely spot in the heart of the Slieve Bloom Environment Park. Slowly over time the dream developed. A local architect was commisioned with the brief to use local materials wherever possible. We were lucky to have a wonderful builder. Next up came the garden and we hadn't a clue at first. A friend told me gardening would become addictive. It did. During one rainy day in march 1999 three of planted over 1000 trees and shrubs often using crowbars to remove the rocks. This formed the backbone of the garden. Later friends introduced Vytemis who was working on the sculpture Park in Lough Boora at the time. We clicked and so much of of what you see now has come from that collaboration.
Why Michael Wood chose Clonaslee
I was working Tullamore and wanted to build my own house and garden in the most beautiful spot within commuting distance. It quickly became apparent that this was the Slieve Bloom Mountains and particularly around the village of Clonaslee. The project took shape and it became our passion. When my job brought me to Dublin we didn't have the heart to sell the house and garden having poured so much of ourselves into it. So we kept it on and over the last three years have been letting it out to holiday makers looking for a quiet and paeceful environment. Feedback has been really positive and very encouraging. This is the first year that we have decided to go it alone without the use of an agency. And have got a website professionally designed.
What makes this Cottage unique
Peace. Time to kick back and relax and slow down. A joy for gardeners and nature lovers. A beautiful garden to explore. In the Slieve Bloom mountains, very much the undiscovered Ireland - many of our guests have refeerd to it as the Real ireland. Also a good central location for a touring holiday
