  • Description

    Description

    We are living in the West of Ireland in an old cottage on 1.5 ha of land. We have 2 goats, chickens and ducks, 2 dogs and 2 cats, a polytunnel and a big kitchen garden. I love baking and cooking the good food that our little smallholding provides. Unfortunately there's little time left in the day to do general maintenance jobs on the house and the outbuildings. What we are looking for is a creative and skilled carpenter.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live a very simple life where most of our food comes from our animals and the garden. I like to share the knowledge I gained in the past 27 years about gardening, preserving, baking, cheese making etc. We also play music and would take you to sessions.

    There's always something in the house or the outbuildings that needs to be fixed or painted. We have a small workshop attached to the cottage and some power tools, nothing fancy. Sometimes (when the sun is shining) we might need an extra hand in the garden.

    We have a small but very cosy wooden cabin with a wood stove where guests and friends can stay (see photo).

    We live in a beautiful part of Clare close to Lahinch (surfer's paradise), the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren. Unfortunately there's no public transport to where we live which is 5km from Kilfenora, 8km from Ennistymon.
