    Description

    Hi we are a small little new family located on the river lung in ballaghaderreen County Roscommon, 3 miles from the nearest town and close to train stations. We have lots of creative projects in mind to complete on our land, we have 3 yurts on site that will have a outdoor decking area made of recyclable plastic with a wood burning hot tub and a pizza oven. We want to create a fairy play ground and make lots of funky natural artwork around the site. We have 21 acres of land that need maintenance. We run events over the year such as creative writing, summer camps, Brigids day events and many more. This year we will be working on maintaining the land, building a communal fire pit area, a raft to get over the island and other creative projects that we havn't thought of yet. We are looking for hard helping people to help with our dream we would also like to find the right person to look after our little 1.5 old baby daughter ziggy, who is extremely sociable and smiley. We would be in and out of the house constantly and only down the field for most of the day. While looking after ziggy, cooking and light household duties would be appreciated. We are both musicans and love to meet new people and hear about different cultures and lands. Weekends you would be free and we can offer you lifts into town or to bus or train stations. Your accommodation would be a spacious/heated dorm room beside our house which maybe shared with another workaways from time to time. You will have your own lounge area with DVD player and own bathroom.
