Eas is the Irish for waterfall.
We are a small family living in beautiful Ennistymon in the West of Ireland. We moved to the area two years ago having lived all over the world before then. We have a pet cat named Raindrop who spends most of his day lolling about outside but comes in at various times for cuddles and food.
We are super lucky to live in a beautiful house that backs out on to the cascades in Ennistymon. We have been renovating our house for the last 18 months. The construction work is finished but we need some help with the finishing touches and general organisation.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
Ennistymon is a vibrant market town, we are two minutes drive from Lahinch - one of the best surfing beaches on the West coast, 15 mins from the Cliffs of Moher and 15 mins from the Burren. It is the perfect base for hiking, climbing, surfing, kite-surfing, sea swimming and any number of other outdoor activities.
We love the outdoors and try to spend as much time as possible in nature and by the beach.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are looking for people with carpentry/wood working skills and in general people who are good at small diy projects and handiwork such as painting and decorating.
We are looking forward to welcoming people who are interested, engaging , kind and compassionate and who are willing to share their skills and knowledge.

A double room in a warm, modern, family home.
We are very health conscious and eat an almost exclusively organic and locally sourced diet. Mornings tend to be early affairs and we go to bed relatively early too.
There is an endless list of activities on our doorstep. Apart from the outdoor activities we are in the town so just a moments walk to all the restaurants, cafes, pubs and shops that Ennistymon has to offer. Ennis is a 25 min car journey away and we are within 45 mins drive of Shannon airport.
