We are a musical and artistic family in Galway city/Salthill.
What you get from this experience is just as important to us as what we get from it. We'd prefer non-smokers. (Or you can smoke in the garden). Please read my profile CAREFULLY before writing to us! Thanks! :-)
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
We speak Irish and play music. We can teach you about those. We'll show you around.
We need help with cooking, food shopping, spring cleaning in the house (washing walls etc etc), and decluttering the garden shed. Also some carpentry/DIY (Like hanging a private art exhibition).
I have a live music/radio project where I could use the skills of a camera-person/video editor. So if you have those, I think we could have some fun.
We are 20 minutes walking distance to the beach/diving board/sea-side.
We are a lot of fun and like to go walking/hiking.
Irish, English, French, German, some Spanish
We have 2 small bedrooms available and you will share a bathroom with 1 other person. The house is in a very quiet residential area away from traffic. There is nothing to hear in the morning but the sound of the birds. We have a very small back garden. The house is 5 minutes from a bus stop for 3 buses which will bring you into the city. Last bus is at around 11pm. Taxis to the house from the centre cost €10. The bus costs €2:30. Bicycle is best!
The only criteria is that you are reliable, serious about your work and this two-way exchange, and serious about having fun at the same time.
We often host guests from around the world and have references on other platforms from over 40 people who have stayed with us and loved it. We love sharing our music and culture and you will have a wonderful time here in Galway with us.
There are two community gardens close by where you can volunteer and share in organic produce with a lovely bunch of people from around the world.
