  • Description


    Hi there, my name is Jimmy. I live in an old farmhouse with my partner Emilie who is French and our son Liam. We are about 1 km from the sea in a beautiful location just outside Kilmore Quay in Co. Wexford. This is a quiet peaceful place with some land and ruins of outhouses around the house. I'm passionate about health and wellness and nature and one day would like to convert the place into a wellness centre.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can stay in a quiet peaceful environment close to the beach. If you like swimming or coastal walks you'll love this location. I like to practice Vipassana meditation and yoga and happy to share any knowledge. The house is an alcohol, smoking and drug free environment so if this appeals to you then great. I also juice and detox a lot and happy to provide juices and healthy mainly plant based meals. I have worked as an English teacher in the past so happy to help people with their English.

    Accommodation for Workawayers will be in a private indoor bedroom with double bed. I will provide duvets, pillows and bed sheets. Meals provided will be organic if possible and are mainly plant based. I also try to care as well as possible for the environment, reusing and recyling things and using only eco-friendly products.

    The house is 1km from Kilmore Quay, you can get local bus to Wexford town and get transport to Dublin other major cities and towns from there. The saltee islands just off the coast of Kilmore quay are an incredible bird sanctuary with large numbers of puffins and gannets and other sea birds nesting there.
