  • Description


    Hi there, my name is Jimmy. I've moved into an old farmhouse 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. I have a deep love of Dhamma teachings. 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 vegan meals. Have infra-red suana on the way so workawayers are welcome to use this. I have worked as an English teacher in the past so happy to help people with their English. Also have a projector which is great for watching movies and documentaries on.

  • Help


    I need help indoors cleaning and painting the rooms of the house. All paints are natural and eco-friendly. Outdoors there is some general maintenance help, clearing of land and outhouses and preparing space for garden.

  • Accommodation


    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 always plant based/vegan. There is no animal products on site and the intention is not to harm any living beings present here. I also try to care as well as possible for the environment, reusing and recyling things and using only eco-friendly products.

    What else ...

    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.
