  • Description


    My husband Ciaran and I (Eimear) are a couple in our mid 30's with a beautiful baby son (Tom, 8 months old!). We live in Spiddal along the Wild Atlantic Way in Galway with our 5yo rescue dog Shera and three chickens! Our garden is a labour of love and was very overgrown when we moved in so we're slowly but surely making it our own! I'm the main gardener and with Tom taking up most of my time now, the garden has become very neglected this year. Over the Autumn and winter of 2020, I'm hoping to Get help and assistance to repair our chicken coop and make some new raised beds, clear out parts of the garden, especially my neglected veggie beds and maybe even make a little treehouse for Tom with some pallet wood :)

    We live approx. 10 mins from Spiddal beach and village. Spiddal is a beautiful scenic Irish speaking village in the west of Ireland located approx. 18km from Galway city. There is a great bus service just a ten-minute walk from our house and Spiddal is a great base for heading further into Connemara!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    With a new baby, we are living pretty boring lives at the moment :) (who knew a dependant baby would take up all of your time!)
    Galway city isn't far away by bus or we can drop you in if we're heading that way. We also have bikes that can be used.
