The House of George the Sky, in the middle of the San Finbarr’s Way, offers a unique spiritual experience. According to local lore, a farmer named George and his family lived in this place without water, electricity or amenities of any kind in order to be “close to heaven”. Located in a mountainous and remote area, the road leading to the house provides an opportunity to disconnect from modern life and reconnect with nature.

Named for its proximity to the sky, the house evokes reflections on the simplicity of living without electricity or modern conveniences, and invites visitors to consider the spiritual connection to the natural environment and the importance of living in harmony with the elements. The experience in this magical place emphasizes the need to appreciate serenity, tranquility, and connection with nature in contrast to today’s fast-paced, technological life.
