  • Beschreibung


    We are a family of four humans (Ben, Sinead, Luka (17) and Felix (13) ), a dog, and a cat. We live in an old farmhouse with rambling gardens, and lots of old sheds. If you like old things, this could be the place for you!

    This is a chance to see a part of Ireland far away from the tourist trail. The land around here is mostly agricultural. We don't have a farm but live on Sinead's family's farm, in the old farmhouse. We speak English, and tiny amounts of Spanish and French, and would be happy to spend some time working together on improving your English skills. You will get a chance to step back in time a little bit and get a glimpse of what it was like to live in rural Ireland in the past, all of the old buildings here have a story to tell.

  • Arbeit


    We are slowly renovating the house and property. Sinead's grandparents lived here, but it has been somewhat neglected for a long time. We need help with cutting hedges / lawns, tree pruning, wood chopping, general ganrden maintenance, cooking ( we could cook for you, but we really love to eat food that other people cook). We are working on the house also, and could use some help with painting and other basic renovation jobs.

  • Unterkunft


    We have a large downstairs bedroom for workawayers, with central heating and a stove. We have one female workawyer here for April and May 2024 and qould love one other person to share with her. The bathroom is shared. Foodwise, we will share a kitchen, and would love someone who would be happy to cook for everyone. We have a solid fuel range, which is great for slow food. We eat meat, but also love vegetarian food. We live an hours drive away from Galway city and Ben works therre so it is possible to get lifts to the city.

    We live in a rural location, one hour's drive from the fabulous Galway city. The nearest town, Mountbellew is 10 mins drive (40 mins cycle) away,. There is also a train station 5 miles away, which will take you directly to Galway or Dublin. We both work in Galway for a local charity, and one of us goes there most days. On your days off you could travel with us. We have bikes for you to use if you want to explore locally. There are lots of country roads to explore. We also go to the bog, and harvest turf every summer. There is a lovely lake there for a swim ( 20 mins cycle from the house).
    We have hosted lots of workawayerrs in the last few years and had a fantastic experience with every one of them. We are nice normal people (!) , and our kids are great fun, they love to play, and get creative, and we all love to have new experiences.
