  • Description

    Description

    I have a large old house and a small bit of untamed land right on the west coast of Ireland, on the Wild Atlantic Way. The house is sandwiched between iconic mountains on one side and Atlantic seascapes on the other. The house is very quiet but also near a main route heading to Sligo and Donegal.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Im a qualified uni and school teacher. I also have a Cambridge CELTA in teaching english...so would be happy to offer lessons.
    I have a interest in slow living and reflective practices. It would be great to share such with anyone similarly interested.
    The area around is very beautiful with places of beauty and historical value nearby. There are many megalithic tombs nearby....up to 5000yrs old. I like to hike and do nature photography and welcome companions.

  • Help

    Help

    Help would be appreciated with a variety of unskilled DIY projects around the old house. This might be a bit of wall painting (no previous experience needed) and possibly helping to remove old wallpaper. Help would also be appreciated cleaning some rooms and old furniture. Any variety of odd projects linked to making this old house feel loved again could come up....dusting, polishing, washing etc.
    Outside there are a lot of weeds and an overgrown garden. On good days it would be great to get some help to reclaim these patches.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Within the house you will have own room with sink within. Access to kitchen and living room at all times. Breakfast and lunch would be self service with a cooked evening meal.

    The house has not been lived in properly for years. It has all mod cons but is not posh. It needs freshened up. Hence the painting and DIY projects.

    There is no wifi in the house
    No pets in the house
    Plenty of outside areas for smokers
