  • Description


    Hi, i live alone in a renovated farm house in the west of Ireland, beside lough Corrib lake, its practically on my door step! I have a private jetty from which i keep a boat and kayaks.
    I am an experienced qualified BHS horse trainer, i train horses,coach riders and run a livery yard.

    I am looking for help at my home, gardening, painting, DIY etc
    My home is in the country-side, in a lovely scenic area, surrounded by great neighbours, and beautiful scenic walks. The nearest shop is 5 min away, as is Campbells pub which is famous for it's live music artists. Galway city is 40 min away. There are regular daily buses in and out to Galway city, if you have your own transport it would be an advantage but not necessary.
    I have double and single rooms, wi-fi, tv etc. Guests must be 25 years or over please. Basically i need help at the house a few hours every day in return for accomadation, meals etc

    Looking forward to hearing from you!
