Comeragh Hostel Harvest BBQ

Some guests at Comeragh Hostel enjoying the BBQ last night to celebrate the farm harvest. In the true spirit of keeping the authentic farm experience the BBQ was in the inner rim of an old tractor tyre!! It really works and the chilly burgers and fresh zuchini, from the hostel garden, tasted amazing.
