Shops, cafes, bars, theatres and galleries are just some of the amenities that can be enjoyed by Workawayers who stay with us.

    Accommodation

    We have a cosy two-bedroom chalet close to the family home. It has a bathroom with shower,living room with TV and DVD player, heating, kitchenette with cooking facilities, and we provide sheets and pillows. Workawayers would need to bring a warm sleeping bag or duvet. We provide vegetarian/vegan groceries, such as cereals, fruit, vegetables, beans, lentils, sauces, pasta, rice, bread, and cheese, eggs and milk if required.
    The accommodation is basic, but comfortable, and we do expect it to be kept clean and tidy, as it will be on your arrival.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Bicycle available, and a bus to Dublin is about three kilometres away. The nearest big town is 15 kilometres, and Dublin airport is accessible by bus from this town. Quiet country lanes on the doorstep, with very little traffic, provide for lovely walks or cycles on spring and summer evenings.
    We are in a rural location, and we live a quiet life, but are happy to provide lifts to Workawayers to catch a bus to the city, or to a local train station to go further afield.
