    Description

    Family of Four (2 funny girls aged 8 and 9) living in the countryside of Galway, 4 miles from a large town with lots to do. Our nearest hostelry is a 2 minute bike ride away! we are in a great position for traveling and discovering the beautiful West Coast of Ireland. We have lived here for 7 years and have established a polytunnel. We usually save our own turf and wood for heating our house.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Visitors to our home will be treated like members of our family. We live in a very historical parish and region which is also famous for its beauty. There is a lake for fishing 5 mins away. We also enjoy our food and love to eat new dishes.

    Help

    Gardening, dogcare, childcare, household chores.
    Generally, our help is quite easy. Polytunnel help, being active with the children and cooking for us. We enjoy trying new recipes!
    As my husband and I have busy schedules we do like to have our own private time together once the children are in bed.
    Being a francophone is a bonus as I try to expose my children to this language as much as possible. Workawayers are very much treated as a member of the family and our children really enjoy these experiences. They are sporty and musical so there's usually quite a bit of activity going on!

    What else ...

    Our nearest town of Tuam has good bus links to the wonderful city of Galway, Mayo's county town of Castlebar, the picturesque town of Westport on the western sea board, and we are 20 mins drive away from the gateway to Connemara. We live in a small neighbourhood and are fortunate to have lovely friendly neighbours. Visitors to our house need to be independent and have use of bikes to get around. Town is 25 min bike ride, pub is 5 mins. We try to do 1 or 2 nice experiences with our visitors but also it is of benefit on your days off to go and explore. We as a family enjoy our personal time together at the weekends.
