Currently seeking help until June 27th, then I am booked up til September.
The horses are turned out to a field for the summer, but I like to bring them in a couple days a week to work them. My days off are Tuesdays and weekends those are my free days to play with my horses, explore, garden, play guitar, relax, whatever.
I like someone to hack out with on my days off if you are able to ride you are most welcome to join me. I also have a 30 x40 new sand arena if you are a beginner I can lunge you in.
I am an American living the beautiful country life in Donegal. I settled here in 1996 so I am a bit Irish too!
I live with my 5 horses and 1 pony, in the countryside 2 miles from the town of Newtowncunningham, County Donegal. I am a 2 mile walk from the nearest bus. You can get buses there though to nearly anywhere. I offer vegetarian food only, no meat chicken or fish in my home please. Most say I'm a good cook anyways. If you need to satisfy your carnivorous habit you will need to eat out and pay for it yourself. I just don't like my kitchen smelling like dead animals. If you are ok with that you will most likely love it in my home. You will have your own room with a double bed. If you don't have a car I will take you to buses or try to get you to places sometimes myself.
I like help with the computer, cleaning, painting, gardening, language practise, whatever you would like to help me with is fine. I am a chiropractor for people and animals so maybe you will learn from me something too.
County Donegal is lovely and scenic with beautiful beaches. Donegal is a beautiful county to explore, Glenveigh Castle and The Giant's Causeway, Bushmills, and loads of beaches are within an hour-2 bus ride from my home in Newtowncunningham. Derry is only a short drive and is a nice city to visit too. Belfast is a train ride from Derry, very scenic. I like to show Donegal to visitors and will do all in my power to ensure you have a nice time.
If you would like to help me drop me a line thanks.
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
I have 22 years working as a chiropractor and even more with horses.
Help with animals, computer, cleaning, whatever...you can choose what you want to help out with, I am open to suggestions. I've gotten so much in return from workaways in the past I feel very lucky and open to suggestions. Horses can be dangerous, insurance is recommended. Im not a slave driver, I don't just do workaway to get free work. I love interacting with people from other countries and learning from them. I have hosted over 50 people from all over the world and love hearing their stories.
Bedroom with 1 double bed. Nothing too fancy, but the country setting is beautiful. Vegetarian only food provided. Relaxed home with evening fires and plenty of fun! Cold in the winter so dress warmly. This is Ireland raingear essential.
