  • Description

    Description

    Come visit our homestead in County Limerick. We have a very small holding, growing vegetables while also raising chickens and pigs for personal consumption. We have Jacob sheep too. We also have bees and if you are interested in learning about bee-keeping we can teach you.

    During your stay we place a strong emphasis on learning and practising English. Comfortable lodgings, with wifi, washing and laundry facilities. No need to bring bed linen as it will be provided. Weekends are always free so you can enjoy visiting local sites or travelling around the country. There are many locally.

    Cooking and cleaning responsibilities are shared amongst everyone so that there is more of a communal feel. There will be workaways from other countries so it is a great experience to meet people from different backgrounds and cultures.
