  • Description


    We are Ray and Colm. We live in an apartment 5km from the centre of Galway. Our place is near a park and forest with nice trails to walk, run and cycle. There are frequent buses to the city centre. Galway is a vibrant city with many pubs and restaurants. Outside the city there are many areas of natural beauty such as The Cliffs of Mohar, Connemara and the Aran Islands.

    We offer language exchange in English and Irish( I have a TEFL cert and have taught in China). We also can introduce the Workawayer to many cultural activities in the Galway area. We both have travelled extensively around the world so can draw from a wealth of experience of countries and cultures.

  • Help


    One of us will be at home most of the time so you will be helping us while we do the refurbishing.
    We are refurbishing our kitchen and living room area and need help removing old flooring, removal of internal wall and old kitchen. Some of the tasks may be manual so looking for enthusiastic and physically fit people to help us while we prepare the area for kitchen installation.
