About Us

dezy and clareDezy Walls is foremost an entertainer who loves Ireland – especially the Southwest. He was born in Dublin, and reared in Cork part of a musical family. His years in Kinsale, Co. Cork as the “pianoman” entertaining tourists (’91 to ’06) were interrupted by five years in the Netherlands as a corporate showman. He then spent the years 2007 to 2013 performing ‘house concerts’ in 42 different states across the USA whilst still travelling to Europe regularly for events. Although known for his many “piano-bikes” and his witty award winning songs, Dezy’s first love is theatre. He is the creator of the musical comedy, Not the Life I Ordered, in which he has acted opposite his brother, Peter. He has also directed this show in London and the US. Other performances include his one man show, Kilminchy to Carnegie, Be Kevin Spacey – a two hander (with his son, Barry) and Anythingers with a troupe in Portland, Oregon. He is currently artistic director of the Small Roads Theatre and Dining Festival held in Kenmare annually. Along the journey anti anxiety (the tour) Dezy feeds you easily digestible interesting historical bits and pieces– revealing his passion for politics, sport, music and social issues.

Clare is “hospitality” and organizer…that’s what she loves to do whilst showing off the Ireland she too loves. Born in South Africa of a French mother and Dutch father, she taught Zulu (African language) until she left SA for Florida USA at age 32 with a young family. Homemaking, being a mother and working in commercial and residential real estate was the next phase. Life then took a sharp turn marked by her marriage to Dezy in London in 2007 and she was thrown into the entertainment world, co-producing Not the Life I Ordered and helping manage Dezy’s entertainment, writing, etc. After several years touring the USA, south west Kerry was selected as the next chapter, and so we find ourselves here. Allowing you to make your experience most memorable is what we want – an all round great time of soul refreshment, fun, humour, fresh air, lovely walks, great beauty, quaintness and charm.
