    Description

    Hi there excited adventurers.

    We are Kim and Steve, a Belgian couple living in Connemara, the West of Ireland. We live in a lovely 300 years old cottage with two bedrooms.

    We love the countryside and nature as we live in the mountains with breathtaking views of Lake Mask. We live amongst hundreds of sheep farmers.

    Our place is remote but nevertheless it's in the center of multiple touristic attractions such as the Killary Fjord, Cong with the famous Ashford Castle, Westport, Clifden, Kylemore Abbey...

    We run a small business of holiday homes and also do gardening for private people.

    There's still a lot of finishing touches to be done on the cottage, our home. But because we're busy enough with our own work we don't find the time to finish these tasks.

    So we are looking for someone who is good in painting and other building skills to help finish the cottage, our home.
    We are preferably looking for a couple who knows how to get along Independent as we are quite often gone for a day's work.
    But the evenings we are mostly home.
    We provide good cooking, Kim is an excellent cook. But feel free if you can cook to let us taste new kitchen.

    There's a lot to see and do around here and I can take you anywhere with the car. I also have bicycles that you can use

    Come and live with us for some time in this magical place in the world

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    There's plenty of things to see and do around Connemara. And though we are remote, we are close to some big towns. We are also close to Galway, cultural capital of Europe in 2020.
    You can also do a lot of hiking and biking around here. We provide bikes
