    Description

    Hi there. Our family farm is located 20 minutes outside of Galway city. We are looking for helpers for jobs around the house, in the kitchen, garden, & on the farm
    Conor (27) has been traveling for a number of years (lots of volunteering) and has now returned home to build an organic farm at the property. Ideally we are hoping to have some volunteers from mid July until the end of August.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will experience what it is like to live in rural Ireland on a family owned farm. In your down time there are bicycles for you to take to explore the area and Galway city (European Capital of Culture 2020) is just 20 minutes away by bus or car, which we can help you with. We are also excellently located to go on day trips to Connemara, the burren, Cliffs of Moher etc.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    During time off helpers can chill out on the grounds (also great for digital Nomads for working when not volunteering), take bikes to cycle around the area. Lough (lake) Corrib is only a 10 minute cycle away.
    There is a bus stop 3KM from the property where you can catch a bus into Galway city (20 Mins) where there is no shortage of entertainment. We are also very happy to assist helpers with tips and information for their travels here in Ireland, best pubs, music, restaurants, day trips etc.
