    Description

    Looking for some help with painting and other decorative jobs in the house which we don't have time to do.

    We are a family of three: Meriel, Des and 6 year old Leo living in picturesque Barna, by the sea on the Wild Atlantic Way, just outside Galway. We have a large spare room with a view for an enthusiastic painter/decorator.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In a past life we both taught English abroad so would be delighted to help anyone wishing to improve their English. We also live on the edge of an Irish speaking area and our place is a good base for exploring Connemara and learning about traditional Irish culture.

    What else ...

    Barna is a great base for exploring the wilds of Connemara. It is about 8km west of Galway City. The public bus service is not great but bikes and lifts are available.

    Although it was a while ago, we know what it is like to be young and trying to see the world on a limited budget so the idea of a cultural exchange appealed to us.

    This is our first time trying Work Away.
