  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of four; two adults and two children (ages 7 and 10). We are in the process renovating a house in a remote part of co. Donegal. It is in an idyllic location, with a lake and six acres of woodland and garden. We are looking for help with any the following projects: painting, to restore an old boat house, build a pier, build a wood store, fix a footpath, etc. transport is not essential but would be beneficial given the remote location. It is a 1.5 km walk to the pub and 5 km to the village. We have an organic garden which we have developed over the last year. We can accommodate individuals, couples, and groups up to four.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They can learn gardening skills, fishing, boating (we have a small lake). The area is really beautiful for walks, cycling etc. When larger groups are present there is a separate kitchen and sitting room that workawayers can use.

    Help

    We are looking for help in the form of manual work, particularly interested in persons with skills in painting, gardening, building repairs or general maintenance. We are renovating a boat shed, building a wood shed and building a pier into the lake. Note that we provide accommodation and food or a food budget. We decide this depending on the number of workawayers at a given time.
