Carrowcrory Cottage is a restored thatched cottage halfway between Ballymote, Co. Sligo and Boyle, Co. Roscommon.

There are currently three Labyrinth Gardens here with one more planned, plus a veggie garden, and plans for a smudging herb garden and fire circle garden.

Carrowcrory Cottage and Labyrinth Gardens is a passionate project worked by John Willmott and Claire Roche from a dream of Claire Roche to preserve a venacular cottage building as they were vanishing fast during the Celtic Tiger years of the mid 90s to mid 00s.

John Willmott is me. I live here, and keeper of the Labyrinth Gardens, and the person updating this web site. I guide and coach most of the activities here. I also answer messages through the contact page here.

Claire Roche lives near Dublin, has done all of her life, but visits Carrowcrory to perform stories, songs and harps for those who book her services here. Claire also visits to do limewashing and painting jobs here, as she enjoys that, and I do not. She also loves to visit for the quiet mindful meditation of thinning and planting work in the Labyrinth Gardens

I will add some pictures of us here soon, so you get a better 'feel' about who we are. I will also post some 'history' of how Carrowcrory Cottage & Labyrinth Gardens were restored and created.
