  • Description

    Description

    We are an adult family of 6 with 4 dogs. We live near Kinvara on the south shores of Galway Bay and we farm oysters. We have a little house also on a small island just off the coast. Every second week we are very busy on the oyster farm. On the weeks in between we need help with gardening, painting, and general maintenance and some cooking is always appreciated.
    Great area for traditional Irish music.
