The charming historic house is to be matched with a team of acclaimed experts: Brian Donovan, Fiona Fitzsimons, both of Eneclann, Eileen O'Duill of Heirs Ireland and her husband, Sean O'Duill, a renowned Irish folklorist.
Tastebuds are also being fully catered for. The €125 fee includes light refreshments and a lunch prepared with fresh ingredients from Annesbrook's garden, and I hear there will be freshly baked scones and other treats during the two breaks. The day will start at 10am and end at 4.30pm.
