  • Description


    Hello hello, I am looking for people at the moment, for deep cleaning house tasks, painting and some general tasks around the place.

    Hey all, I live in a beautiful old stone building in the town of Gort. It is on the edge of the Burren and so has this fantastic area close by in which to explore as well as the wild atlantic way coast, with easy connections to Galway, Limerick and Dublin. I run a stone carving/sculpting business from the property and am very passionate about my work.

    So I am 44 years old, sometimes seem like 18 and other times like 81. I have two Jack Russell dog's who demand regular, extensive walks/hiking, which keeps me happy too. I absolutely love the outdoors and am active in many things in this regard, such as fishing, swimming, cycling, kayaking and hiking. I have hosted quite a bit on other sites..couch surfing..and grew up with wwoofing. I am relatively new to Workaway and hope to get going with it now.

    I very much enjoy listening to music of all shades..good conversation is a joy.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I take great pleasure in showing people around the stunningly beautiful area in which I live. I love to hike. I am interested in most things, so language, natural world, history, archaeology, politics, philosophy, good conversation, some beers, music.

    Prefer non smokers.

  • Accommodation


    I currently have a separated one bed roomed apartment on the ground floor which is the main workaway accommodation and is completely self sufficient. There is also one bedroom in the main house which can be available if necessary but only for very short stays. Bedding is also provided. I only accept bookings for a two week stay, though this can potentially be extended by mutual agreement.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The surrounding region is incredibly beautiful, between the Burren area itself and the wild atlantic way coast. There are many things to do with your time off and Gort is a fantastic location for adventuring in the West of Ireland. I am very happy to point you in the right direction or help in any way I will definitely be showing you around when time away from work allows. I will definitely take you hiking. I can also provide the use of bicycles. Also if you are interested, I may take the time to show you a little bit about stone carving and teach you how to do something.

    The main kitchen is where you would eat mainly and we would share meals for the most part. I enjoy cooking and I fully intend to be exploring a much healthier diet in 2023. More wholefoods, less sugar, dairy, fat and meat. Somebody who has an interest in food would be great. I intend developing a more comprehensive food garden this coming year. It would be also nice if work awayers can at times be independent, maybe cook independently two nights a week and for breakfast sometimes...just to allow for some personal space. The apartment has its own kitchen though quite small. Prefer non smokers...mainly as I am trying to fully reform myself.
