Niall and I (Maya) have been workawayers too and travel often, but we are currently settled into a big house in South Kerry. Niall is from Co Meath, Ireland and I am from Vermont, USA. We have also lived in Sweden and Italy together! We both work from home, and can host digital nomads or those on holiday for a week or less. A Ukrainian woman, Aleksandra, who is 25 years old also lives with us!
A car of your own is ideal, but isn't necessary. Niall will pick you up in Cahersiveen or Waterville if you don't have a car and can drop you back at the end of your stay, but he works 9-17:30 so it would have to work around that. If we have free time, we'll give you a tour of the area or bring you with us to the beach/ towns/ day trips. However, we do live in the country, so be warned if you can't drive that it is rural and without public transport. We are a 15 minute drive from Waterville & 20 to Cahersiveen. Or a 40 minute walk to the local pub and shop.
We only do short term stays because we do not really have any work and it is expensive to keep people. But we love meeting new people anyway!
We live just a few minutes walk to a lake, and have two 2-person inflatable kayaks we can take out in the summer. There are also lots of scenic walks and hiking trails nearby. It is a great place to relax for a few days.
I (Maya) am a writer and a lover of crafts. I work with embroidery, crochet, acrylic paint on canvas, fabric paint, (air dry) clay, beads, and other random stuff. So if you like art, that's a huge bonus! Niall is a geologist ☺

We are friendly, talkative people who love meeting others. Travelling is our biggest passion, and Niall is an incredible tour guide. As we don't require any work, our place is great for good rest and relaxing (as well as adventuring outdoors).
Maya does lots of art forms and can show you how to make something if you're interested in it too :-)
We have all the basics, but can't afford to provide all meals (especially as we don't really have any work for you to do) so you'll be expected to buy your groceries. But, what we've done with our other workawayers is take turns making dinner. So dinner is provided on nights that aren't your turn!
If we have a fire the night before, you may be asked to take out the ashes and bring in new turf -- this takes >5 minutes.
Helping with the cats litter boxes/food would be helpful, and expected if we were to go away on a trip.
You may be asked to drive Maya and/or foster animals to appointments or town, but that would be really rare.
Iveragh is beautiful and Dingle is not too far for a day trip as well, if you have your own vehicle :-). Basically your entire day will be free! We just expect dinners together, and then if you want to do other things with us too you're welcome to. We love board & card games.
Dieser Gastgeber bietet Sprachaustausch an
Maya is learning Irish. Niall speaks conversational Italian, rusty beginner French, and fluent Irish. Aleksandra speaks Ukrainian, Russian, and English.
We have a lovely big home we're renting at the moment, previously a holiday home. Each room has a big mirror with a vanity, desk, table and chairs, walk in wardrobe and bathroom.
As we don't really have any work to do, we ask you to bring the food you like & pick up the ingredients when you cook the dinner. We do have all the staples, and towels/tooth paste/shower supplies :-)
It is a beautiful area! We are only a few minutes drive (40 min walk) to a pub and shop where you can meet locals. Waterville and Cahersiveen are our nearest towns. We are fairly central to the ring of kerry.
We're within 40 minutes to at least 8 stunning beaches. There are a lot of hiking trails all around the area. If you have a bike, it is a popular cycling destination too.
Eingeschränkter Internet Zugang

Wir sind Raucher
We have okay wifi and 4G signal. There is also a high speed wifi hub a 40 minute walk away, if you prefer. Your room will have a desk in it!
We have plenty of space if you want to park up, and you can use our indoor facilities and stay in the house/do your laundry!
We love all animals, but we do foster cats and sometimes dogs, so if your animal is too roudy they'll have to stay in your room.
