  • Description


    We are a farming family with dad working 9-5mon-fri in town, Sligo town while we live 15minutes away in Beltra sligo. Mom is at home with three boys under 10 farming and finishing working on our new house!
    Which we could use some help with! Nothing to heavy just general help! We happen to be in one of the best surfing/fishing/touring/mountain biking and artists retreats in all of Ireland and I like to think the world😊
    We have a nice caravan if you would like to not stay in our sometimes noisey house! You would have your own fridge cooker etc in the caravan. But we will cook a big family meal atleast twice a day if not three!! Big hearty farmer meals but I like hipster food for myself but im usually on my own with my avocado chilli sourdough toast while the lads like their beans on toast!
    I(mum) is used to growing up with foreign students staying to learn english and always loved learning the new cultures and cooking and craic! We have a fun welcoming home!
