  • Description


    Hello and welcome. I need help someone with dog and horse experience is a must!
    If you like the country, love silly little very loud dogs, (terrier and dachshund mix) that bark a lot, and have lots of experience with horses and dogs
    you could be a good fit and should love it here. The 3 dogs are high energy and need lots of attention. They bark a lot and while this is annoying I also adore them so that’s how it is here. The horses, 5, May be out to pasture or may be stabled, so mucking out, feeding, checking water, looking at them, grooming them etc is part of your chores here.
    I am a vegetarian, and provide vegetarian food only. No dead animals are to be eaten in my home. I am generous and buy the best food available whatever you like. Vegans are also welcome but I usually only make it about 3 weeks without cheese. You don’t have to eat it though. And I only eat an egg that is produced by a happy hen, so we don’t get eggs all the time.
    I don't have riding school type horses for beginners, but if you are a good experienced rider you can help work 2 of them. I would love someone who could teach me dressage and teach my horses lateral work. My young 2 year old horse needs handling at the moment and I need help with him trying to get near him and teaching him manners. I have 2 foals due in May. If you know dressage you can ride the 9 year old Kitkat. I’d love to learn dressage groundwork, help me if you know some please. Nike can be ridden lightly but only for experienced riders.
    My days off are Tuesdays and weekends those are my 3 free days to play with my horses, take dogs to the beach, explore, garden, play guitar, rest. I’d love someone to help me with my guitar, or help learn some Portuguese, Spanish or French.
    It takes a week to get used to the horses and dogs so someone who wants to stay at least a month is best.
    I often take mini holidays, and I am more comfortable with hosting someone happy with that. Someone likes their own company (although often there are 2 workawayers here. I seek someone independent, used to looking after a home, cooking, turns lights off when they leave a room and doesn’t leave the heat on 24-7.
    My dogs are also a big part of living in my home so if dogs annoy you please don’t apply.
    I work as a chiropractor Monday Wednesday Friday 11-7 and Thursdays 2-8. I settled here from America in 1996 so I am a bit Irish too!
    To get to me fly into Dublin or Belfast or City of Derry airport. Please don’t fly into Donegal Airport it’s in the middle of nowhere with no buses. Buses from Dublin Belfast or City of Derry take you to Letterkenny or Derry then get a bus to Newtowncunningham where I live and will collect you.
    I live 2 miles from the Newtown Cunningham bus stop and you can get buses from there to nearly anywhere.
    County Donegal is lovely and scenic with beautiful beaches. Donegal is a beautiful county to explore, Glenveigh Castle and The Giant's Causeway, Bushmills, and loads of beaches are within an hour-2 bus ride from my home in Newtowncunningham. Derry is only a short drive and is a nice city to visit too. Belfast is a train ride from Derry, very scenic.
    Lots of my workaway helpers have done mini trips themselves to Belfast and Galway especially. If you would like to help me drop me a line.

    Thanks Victoria

    Help with animals, especially walking dogs and looking after horses. I need basic help with computer, sorting photos making files doing social media. There’s always painting, cleaning, can choose what you want to help out with, I am open to suggestions. I've gotten so much in return from many workaways in the past I feel very lucky and open to suggestions. I find most are eager to help so if you have any ideas for improvement feel free to suggest. Horses can be dangerous, insurance is recommended. So far nobody has been seriously injured but riding is a high risk sport and if you do ride here it’s at your own risk. Im not a slave driver, I don't just do workaway to get free help. I love interacting with people from other countries and learning from them. I have hosted over 80 people from all over the world and love hearing their stories.

  • Hébergement


    Nothing too fancy, but the country setting is beautiful. Your own bedroom with a double bed. Shared bathroom with other workawayers (if any around) The shower has bad power so it’s more like a bath than a shower. I don’t use a tumble dryer so drying clothes can be tricky in the rainy winter. Vegetarian only food provided. No meat in my home please. I tried letting meat eaters come but my kitchen stunk of dead animals so now I try to host mostly vegans or vegetarians. Relaxed home with plenty of doggie fun! Cold in the winter so dress warmly. This is Ireland raingear essential, wellingtons too.

    Derry the walled city 15 minutes away. Beach 20 minutes. Glenveigh Castle and National Park 1 hour away. Giants Causeway 1 1/2 hour away. Doagh Island an hour away. Train from Derry to Belfast a nice overnight trip.
    My WiFi is slow and unpredictable so you may want to have data for your phone. I switched providers and it has improved.
