  • Description


    We are a couple (and a cat and 6 chickens) looking for some help around our house. We have big plans to transform our garden into a beautiful place for growing vegetables, feeding birds and housing more animals. We also have a few rooms in our house that will eventually become bedrooms, we would also love you to help us clear these rooms out and help us prepare them for decorating.

    We live right beside the most beautiful beach and we have wonderful views of The 7 Sisters mountain range which is located in west Donegal. We are about 20 min walk to the local town, which has a few pubs, cafes, and great people. We love music and would be more than happy to take you out on the town.
    We live close to Dunfanaghy, Gweedore and are 40 mins away from Letterkenny. There are buses daily to Letterkenny, Derry, Belfast, Sligo, Galway and Dublin if you wish to travel and see these places too!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We want to offer our accommodation and food in return for some help around our house. We live in one the most beautiful places in Donegal. We live right beside the coast, the Wild Atlantic Way. We are in full view of Muckish and Errigal mountains (Donegal's highest point). We think whoever wants to join us here will really appreciate the beauty of rural Donegal.

  • Help


    We are looking for another couple or a lone traveller to help with transforming our garden. We have an area that needs some TLC and we have a few more exciting landscaping projects in mind. We also have plans to transform the upstairs of our house into 2 beautiful bedrooms and would love some help clearing them out.
