OUR IDEAL CRITERIA & DATES:
Preferred visit duration - 3-4 weeks.
Preferred Workaways (but we are open to persuasion):
Over the age of 26, from the European Union - if you have a full licence, we can give you access to our car on some evenings/weekends - this will help you enjoy the visit. (However, this is not essential - we are two miles from the nearest small town so the car is handy, but not essential).
We are a couple (plus dog) who live in the countryside in the west of Ireland.
Our dog will lie on an adjacent mat and watch you while you help :)
Our next project (March/April 2020) involves stripping plaster off our family home - we are restoring the old stonework on this home.
If you have queries, we can talk by Skype or What's App.
By the way, we will always reply to your messages here, even if we are not in a position to host you. It's good manners and the least you deserve after contacting us.
DIY and building projects
You will love this part of the world - scenic west of Ireland.
We enjoy hosting people from all over the world and take time to get to know you, to educate you about our region and our country, and to suggest trips you might like to take while here.
Our reviews show that we take time with people and try to be as helpful as we can.
MARCH/APRIL 2020: Project - We will be stripping plaster off our house so would like people with some experience of using a power tool (kango) and a chisel. It's a slow but rewarding project as you see the old stone come back to 'life'.
Workaways live in our house (double room, suitable for couples or singles) while helping here. We will provide dinner and a bed and breakfast (including bed clothes and pillow) and full access to our home. Use of washing machine and clothes dryer, plus all other facilities in our home.
Downstairs bathroom shared (primarily shared with our washing machine) - though if we don't have any bookings on a night, the ensuite bathroom upstairs is made available to you.
Thank you, Liam and Noreen.
If you are over 26, from the EU, and hold a full driver's licence, we will be able to give you access to a car at weekends and put you on our car insurance free of charge.
