  • Description


    I'm a farmer living on the west coast of Ireland. , , . I have been farming all my life and am a host for the past 8 years (with over a hundred volunteers ). Private peaceful woodland setting. Nice walks and close to the village. With Irish pubs, village and very fun people. 10min by car from Ennis. I do prefer volunteers to be aged 20 years and older.

    Sense of humor is needed! :)
