Close to the historical village of Mayo Abbey and 2km from Balla. The site consists of a 3 bed traditional cottage, dairy sheds, hay barn, cottage garden and mature woodland. We are developing the site further, and enhancing the current grounds, encouraging growth of the native flora and fauna,

Pete is an experienced tree surgeon and will be sharing his knowledge of tree care, and providing some practical experience. Ann is a tour guide and would be delighted to share some of Co.Mayo's off the beaten track secrets!
General maintenance of existing cottage and gardens, with plenty of scope for the creation of bio diversity gardens, bat/bird/bee boxes, planting of native wild flowers. We would like to develop the woodland meditation zone, herb garden and raised beds. Some other tasks may include timber processing, simple carpentry, painting, baking, subject to skill level and weather conditions.
We ask Workawayers to be flexible, willing to help out as part of a team and individually. Basic English or French would be an advantage, as would be any basic skills in carpentry.
Our lucky helpers get to stay in the retreat accommodation as we are closed for the season.
This is perfectly located for exploring Connemara, The Wild Atlantic Way and The Great Western Greenway. We are only an hour away from Achill Island which boasts one worlds best beaches.
