    We have a small private yard with two dressage horses who are part of the family. We would love someone to join us to help with the daily care of the horses and the maintenance of the yard. During the week the chores required are usually light and involve the turning out of the horses and bringing them in, as well as some yard maintenance (levelling arena's, keeping the yard tidy, some gardening/landscaping). At weekends help travelling to shows or attending training with would be asked. This is not for riding but might suit someone with an interest in dressage/horses. Basic experience in handling horses is essential.

    Loughrea is a beautiful town which boasts many amenities such as the beautiful lake, nearby Slieve Aughty mountains, tennis courts, golf club and variety of wonderful bars and restaurants. We are also very fortunate to have excellent transport links to Galway (30 mins by bus) and Dublin ( 2 hours) .

    We would love for someone who has experience with horses, preferably warmbloods/sport horses to help with the daily turnout of the horses, general care, grooming , some mucking out, and to help with travel to shows/ dressage training events.

    We would also welcome someone who can help with the regular maintenance of the arena's, grazing paddocks and the gardening/weeding etc.

    Ideally we are looking for someone who is interested in a minimum 3- 6 month period. We need someone who is responsible, reliable and can take direction.

  • Alojamiento


    Own accommodation in comfortable guest room with en suite within the main house. The yard is situated a 5-10 minute walk from the house but very accessible. The house is located a ten minute walk to the centre of Loughrea but we are adjacent to the main hotel in the town and the main shopping centre is a mere 2-3 min walk from the house.
