About K. Geraghty
My husband is originally from Ballintubber Co. Mayo. His parents still live in this tranquil little village. We found ourselves travelling to Ireland more and more as the years passed and our family grew. Renting a place large enough to house our family became an ever increasing challenge and always required a drive to visit the extended family of cousins and grandparents. We knew eventually we would build somewhere and decided that this village we called Home was the only real choice for us. We designed and built the house over the space of 2 yrs seeing to all the important details ourselves. It was and still is an expression of our love for the area and of Ireland itself. When we came to realize this, the only proper choice for a name was Teach Mo Chroi' or 'Home of my Heart'. We are Karla & Gerry Geraghty. We are raising 4 children, live and work near Chicago, Illinois.
K. Geraghty purchased this House in 2001
Why K. Geraghty chose Ballintober
We originally chose the site for its close proximity to family, its tranquil setting, and mountainous views. Building our own home allowed us to pack it full of unique features and details not found in other homes. Our location makes us a great choice for touring the West of Ireland. We are within an hour of many of Irelands treasured landmarks and tourist attractions. Ashford Castle in Cong, Croagh Patrick in Westport, and Achill Island are merely a few of the places a visitor must see. The town of Westport is full of Irish music and merriment in any number of traditional pubs which line its cobblestone streets.
What makes this House unique
Teach Mo Chroi' is a family friendly home with many desirable features to it's credit. The house is equipped with US 110v outlets as well as the standard Irish/European 220v, so bring along your ipods, laptops, and cameras, but leave the converters at home you won't need them. No need to pack that bulky hair dryer we have 3 for use during your stay. All of our bedrooms have very comfortable thick American mattresses which will provide a great nights rest after a long day of touring. We offer password protected WIFI as well as an extensive selection of Irish Films (30+) on DVD and also numerous award winning American films for your viewing pleasure. If you enjoy a good novel we have many to choose from in our library of books. Our Satellite (SKY) TV has a considerable number of channels and special kids programming (Disney and Nickelodeon) to please the whole family. The grounds of our property offer a number of activities for families to enjoy together; soccer, basketball, kids swings, outdoor furniture and a Weber Gas Grill (usable May-Sept) to dine Al Fresco on our large patio. Short walks to explore the farmland surrounding the home are enjoyed by most of our guests.
