    Hi there,
    We are a mother and daughter living in a beautiful rural area of Co. Mayo on a wide expanse of open land including mountains, valleys and lakes. There are many scenic walks here to discover and it is also a great place for hiking and travelling by bicycle. Our home is about twenty minutes drive from the nearest beach.

    My daughter is 11 and we are new to homeschooling. She would benefit from the company of someone who likes to have fun outdoors, who enjoys sharing and exploring nature, art and learning. She is skilled in using computers, animation, digital design and loves animals and computer games. I would like to bring more balance to her digital life.
    As I am homeschooling I would really appreciate someone who is outgoing and can encourage my daughter and be involved in sharing projects with her. She has been learning Spanish ( on duo lingo ) and we also are interested to learn Slovak / Czech.

    There is plenty of outdoor gardening potential here - we are endeavouring to grow our food supply.

    I teach classes online sharing Kundalini Yoga & Meditation and Irish heritage and culture. Another interest is herbal medicine and growing trees and herbs. Also we are musicians and like to improvise comedy and drama for fun.

    Among the key tasks I would like help with:
    Homeschooling projects - creative and practical - sharing key hours of engagement during the day and having adventures.

    Building a compost toilet- are you a compost toilet building expert?

    Permaculture ideas and suggestions for how to work on the land.

    The nearest towns are Ballina and Tobbercurry where we do our shopping. As we are in a very rural area you would have limited social contact although we do have very fun neighbours who are also self- sufficient. There is plenty of scope for reflection and exploring nature.

    If you have building skills and initiative or interest to help us design and build some basic structures such as an outdoors compost loo and outdoor storage spaces that would be great.

    Otherwise, there is plenty of scope for gardening activities and the main focus of exploring collaborative learning and interacting with my daughter.

    We have a grandmother who speaks mostly Slovak so it would be nice to learn more Slovak. I speak French and make an effort with Spanish and German. It is best for clarity if you have good English ( or Irish ! ) as those are the main languages here ( especially for communicating with my daughter).

  • Unterkunft


    The house is a two storey detached house and has two double bedrooms and a single bedroom - so there would be a double bedroom available to live in help for an agreed period of time. This room has a large double bed, and wonderful views of the surrounding landscape. There are two toilets one up and one down, shower bath and large kitchen area. A medium size garden to back with raised beds fruit trees..

    We go to the beach on weekends or when weather allows. The beach is a popular and sandy surfing beach. There is a possibility of fishing in the nearby lakes.

    It is possible to get around on a bicycle and the closest village is Bunniconlon where there is a shop and bus stop.

    This is a perfect place for quiet meditation, writing, reflection and spending quiet time in nature. There is plenty of wildlife roaming free among the sheep ( the mountains serve as a red Grouse sanctuary ). It is possible to do a five hour hike across the mountains to Foxford, a heritage town.

    It is best if visitors are good at occupying themselves, self contained and happy to be with younger folk and in a wide expanse of nature.

    As I also work online - we know that zoom has an excellent connection here - there is a connection throughout the house but we have two main rooms that can be used to work in.

    A smaller van if possible. We have a narrow road as an entrance so it may be difficult to turn and manoeuvre for any larger motorhomes.
