Dearbhaill Standún

Dearbhaill Standún is co-founder and co-owner of Cnoc Suain, an international award-winning cultural retreat near An Spidéal in the Conamara Gaeltacht. A qualified teacher, a native Gaelic speaker and a member of the Irish traditional & Baroque music group ‘Dordán’, Dearbhaill is also a graduate of Ballymaloe Cookery School.
