    Description

    Hi there, our small farm is located in a very rural and very nice part of east Clare, in the west of Ireland (not too far from the beautiful cliffs of Moher and filled with Irish trad music). Our smallholding Contains many animals including; dogs, cats, horses and poultry. We are avid amateur gardeners and love working on our plant filled gardens ( vegetable and flower). We also foster and rehabilitate dogs for a local rescue

    I love the outdoor life and have farmed and traveled for most of my life and my daughter is studying freshwater and marine biology in university. There are so many different types of jobs on the farm from carpentry to cutting brambles, gardening , playing soccer with the dogs, handling the horses and so many more! Although weather/season dependent, there is always something to do.


    The spare room in our house is always welcome to any adventurer wanting to share experiences and cultures.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    With a multitude of knowledge about farming and animal care form my studies and life experience, I enjoy sharing this knowledge with you. We have had many types of animals on the farm from sheep to bees and although they may not be present on the farm anymore, the knowledge is passed on. We take the time to explain and love to share 'life'stories of travel etc. and our area is filled with lots of artists, musicians and alternative farming. We love languages and enjoy aiding in the improvement of one's level of English if desired.
