  • Description


    We are a couple in our thirties. Deirdre works as a psychologist with the national health service and Kenny works as a secondary school teacher. We have two small children, Maggie (4 in june) and Cara (1 year old)
    Our house is ideally located ten minutes drive to Galway city, very close to major Supermarkets and a local shop. We are just off the Wild Atlantic Way and our house can be used as a gateway to explore the many wonderful landscapes of the West of Ireland including, Connemara, Co. Mayo, Co. Clare and the islands off the Galway coast.

    We are sociable friendly people.

    We can offer you your own room with bathroom in a modern comfortable warm home.

  • Help


    During June/July 2020 we would like help with painting our house and general garden and house maintenance. Someone with a bit of experience painting exteriours and with DIY skills would be ideal.

    We would also like some help with the children from time to time- but Kenny would be on holiday from work and doing that for the most part. Some who is used to children (perhaps who has younger siblings) would be ideal.
