Ireland’s west coast is a stunning and often challenging landscape. The people we met while eating lunch in this neat little seaport town, where the fish we were enjoying came off one of the trawlers tied up at the busy dock just a few hours earlier, told us the history of Killybegs.

One man said: “The name Killybegs comes from the stone buildings believed to have been built here by monks centuries ago.

Of equal importance was the beautifully large mature lot the house was situated on. Over the years, they raised their family in this home and filled it with many great treasured memories.

Three years ago, Kate’s ailing father came to live with the family. As they cared for him, it quickly became apparent that the small three-bedroom bungalow, with its narrow hallway and tiny bathroom, was simply not conducive to caring for the elderly. This started them thinking and planning for their own future.
