  • Description


    Hello Workaways!, we are a young family of four- myself, partner, baby girl and dog Lelo. I am English and my partner is Irish. We are a super laid back family, always joking around and never take anything too serious. Our dog Lelo is a tiny chihuahua who is super friendly who loves cuddles and attention. We live on the Lough Corrib which is a stunning lake that flows right through Galway. The views are stunning, especially at night when the sun sets. If you like peace and quiet then you will love it here!! Every morning we wake up to the birds singing and the sound of the rain ( it always rains in Ireland haha). As much as we love where we live, it is very hard to keep up with maintaining the land (nature is very much "the boss"). We also have odd projects in and around the house that we would like to pursue but could use a little help. We have a little girl also, so we are open to help with childcare. We welcome anyone who likes the country and is baby/dog friendly.

    Here you can experience life in rural Ireland (although not completely rural), only 25 minutes away from Galway city and on route to Connemara. We are surrounded by beauty and history with Aughnanure Castle only 15 minutes walk away and Connemara/clifden just over an hour away. You can gain experience of Irish farming if interested.

  • Help


    We are open to help with either of the below-

    1) help with gardening and light house DIY. Painting/decorating etc. House maintenance in and out. Collecting sticks/Logs for the fire. This could possibly also include light farm help if you were interested.

    2) childcare- we have a 15 month old baby girl who loves to be outside exploring nature, walks.

    Or you are welcome to help with both.
