The Guesthouse on the Green Boxset

O’Mara’s

A jilted bride to be, a woman with a secret past and a pesky red fox…

If Aisling O’Mara hadn’t winged her way home to the Emerald Isle to take over the running of the family guesthouse she’d never have met Marcus, and her heart wouldn’t have been broken. She’s been trying to put her life back together since he left, but now he’s back and says he’s sorry. Can she trust him again?

Moira Lisa Smile

A girl with a Mona Lisa smile, a woman who wants to confront her demons and that pesky red fox…

Moira O’Mara’s developed an annoyingly enigmatic, Mona Lisa smile of late when it comes to talking about her new man. She’s not ready to share him with her family, not just because they treat her like a baby. Look at the way they go on at her about her drinking? It’s not a problem, she likes a party, who doesn’t? No, he’s her secret, and for now, it has to stay that way, but keeping secrets can be hard and knowing when you’ve gone too far can be even harder.

What Goes on Tour

Join Moira and Mammy on their journey of self-discovery…

Moira and Maureen O’Mara aren’t on your usual mother, daughter trip. You won’t spot them browsing the shops on Grafton Street followed by a spot of  lunch in Dublin’s iconic Bewleys. Oh no, Moira and her mammy have just arrived in Vietnam.

Rosi’s Regret

Rosi’s husband’s been keeping a secret from her…

Roisin O’Mara regrets a lot of things. She regrets having just snaffled the out of date Jacobs Club bar she found down the back of the cupboard, and the cheese she ate before bed the night before—it gave her the strangest dreams. Mammy always told her not to eat cheese before bed. She should have listened. Just like she should have when Mammy asked her if she was sure doing the right thing getting married, because that’s her biggest regret of all.

What Goes On Tour

Moira and Maureen O’Mara aren’t on your usual mother, daughter trip. You won’t spot them browsing the shops on Grafton Street followed by a spot of a lunch in Dublin’s iconic Bewleys. Oh no, Moira and her mammy have just arrived in Vietnam.

It’s Maureen’s dream to sail on a Junk (who knew?) and as for Moira, well she’s come along for the ride under duress—Mammy made her. Join them as they travel the hop on-hop off bus from Hoi Chi Min to Hanoi.

By the time the bus pulls into Hanoi’s Giap Bat bus station, Sally-Ann learns you don’t need blood ties to be family and Moira and Mammy will see each other through different eyes.

Join Mammy and Moira O’Mara on their journey of self-discovery.

 
Rosi's Regrets

 Roisin O’Mara regrets a lot of things. She regrets having just snaffled the out of date Jacobs Club bar she found down the back of the cupboard, and the cheese she ate before bed the night before—it gave her the strangest dreams. Mammy always told her not to eat cheese before bed. She should have listened. Just like she should have when Mammy asked her if she was sure doing the right thing getting married, because that’s her biggest regret of all.

When Roisin discovers a secret her husband’s been keeping from her, she and their five year old son, Noah leave Dublin and head for her old home in Dublin, O’Mara’s Guesthouse on the Green.

Reggie Nolan has regrets too. To say he’s sorry, isn’t in his vocabulary but time is running out. He’s come to stay at O’Mara’s to try and find the strength to put things right with the person he loves most in the world.

With a little sisterly love and some advice from Mammy will Roisin be able to move forward? And can Reggie make amends for what he did thirty years ago, before it’s too late?

Come and stay at O’Mara’s 

 
Christmas at O'Mara's

Two Christmases, two second chances. A heart-warming O’Mara family Christmas story.

 

Roisin O’Mara has already suffered through a pre-Christmas, Christmas in London with her insufferable soon to be ex-mother-in-law and husband. Now with her son, Noah, and an unexpected extra guest in tow she’s arrived in Dublin for her second Christmas. It’s not just her family Roisin’s looking forward to seeing though. She hasn’t been able to stop thinking about Shay, the man she met on her last visit home.

But the timing was wrong. It still is and she’s not sure he’s someone she should let get close. Everybody deserves a second chance at love though, or so her mammy says, but will Roisin miss out on hers?

Cliona Whelan was a woman born before her time. She put her career before love in the days when a woman couldn’t have both and success came at a cost. Then, a Christmas card arrives offering her a second chance, but is it too late?

This year come and spend Christmas with the O’Maras. There’ll be laughter, and tears, a roaring fire to curl up in front of, mulled wine and cake, lots of cake.
