  • Descripción


    I invite helpers ( over 25 years of age) to the North West of Ireland - Sligo, for a cultural experience and to practice their English while helping in the garden and around the house. I have travelled myself and done a lot of work away type work so enjoy having people to stay. The property is a old stone house on 3/4 acre surrounded by mature trees. It is a very beautiful spot and while the work can be very physical it is enjoyable and restful to be in such a beautiful setting .I live 10 mins from the sea - great for swimmimg and surfing and there are many beautiful walks around also. The garden itself is ideal for yoga, movement practice and meditation. While here you will be staying in the cabin in the garden or in the old stone house. I look forward to meeting you.

    I am very happy to offer help with learning English.In addition my garden is chemical free and constantly being changed and modified so you will learn about wild gardening, permaculture, tree maintenace and working with water - 2 streams in the garden, damp and dry soils . For those interested in household chores you learn about chalk painting and delicious cooking!

  • Ayuda


    I ask for 5 hours help per day in exchange for accommodation and food. Generally you will be helping in the garden, tending vegetables and plants, clearing streams, cutting, strimming, pruning, cutting and stacking wood, possiblly painting the cabin and other more household like chores. I will work away from the gardens myself some days so you will be asked to share cooking and chores but generally we will live in shared space and share tasks as much as possible

  • Alojamiento


    You will be staying in a wooden cabin ( on a futon) in the garden or in the stone house ( bed ) The cabin is a short distance from the loo and kitchen but very self contained and restful

    If Workaways help 5 hours per day, for 5 days, all food ( largely vegetarian) will be supplied. At weekends accomodation and breakfast and lunch are covered but not evening meals.

    Swimming, surfing, hillwalking, climbing and partaking in some of the many cultural events that happen in Sligo is all accessible. Public transport is limited but available within certain times. Your own vehicle is useful but not absolutely necessary. I ask people to share this space with me and every other living creature here with an awareness of the impact we have on each other and the environment and treat all with respect. Smoking is not allowed in the cabin or house, Food will be largely vegetarian though not all.
