**This design is inspired by many farms found around Ireland in years gone by, such as Molly Gallivan's in Kenmare, Co. Kerry. It allows us to experience a simpler time when the farm was the centre of rural life. Animals and fowl can be seen running around the farmyard with old machinery and spinning wheels on show too.
This type of house was used as the main residence for the farmers family. In these homes the women created delicious baked goods using produce grown on the land. Everything had a use even the pluttered feathers were used as the filling in pillows or as brushes beside the open fires. The half doors kept the children inside and the animals out. As these homes got quite stuffy with small windows the opened doors allowed air to circulate hence the front and back door. People could also lean out the door to smoke a pipe or gossip easily with approaching visitors.
