    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 are in the process of building 3 yurts that will have a outdoor decking area made of recyclable plastic, we are installing a wood burning hot tub and making a pizza oven. We want to create a fairy play ground and make lots of funky natural art work around the site. We are looking for hard working people to help with our dream we would also like to find the right person to look after our little 10mnth 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. If time permits while looking after ziggy, 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.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are beginning the process of revamping our property which will include groundworks, landscaping, planting & gerdening, building, artworks and probably lots of things we have not thought of yet. Ziggy loves the outdoors, so you will get plenty of opportunity to see all of this going on. Our property also has a dojo on site (run by my father who lives close by) and there are martial arts and tai chi classes for varying levels of experience run weekly which you would be welcome to join in with free of charge.

    On weekends you can come and go as you please. We can give you lifts into town to bars and shops and you can have the use of a bicycle. There are some good fishing and walking areas around that you can enjoy. We like to go to gigs and events and you would be welcome to come with us. I like to draw and paint and there are lots of inspiring views on our land perfect for sketching and painting.
