  • Description


    Hi there, we are Niamh and Sam, we are a family of 4 with two small children and two big dogs. Our kids ages are 1.5 and 4 years old and love running round the garden and playing on the beach

    I am a working chef and my husband is a bladesmith / knife maker with a workshop on our land. We have worked in the food industry for years, run a successful restaurant, had a furniture making business and are now in the midst of setting up a craft and cookery school.

    We have 3.5 acres of land with developing vegetable garden, orchard and wilderness areas. The workshop is an agricultural shed with old stone out buildings on site that we are going to covert to accommodation down the line.

    Our house is very rural and quiet, but we are just a 10min drive from the famous surf of Lahinch Beach and the beautiful market town of Ennistymon town, the Cliffs of Moher and The Wild Atlantic Way are 20mins drive with access to the ferry to got over to The Aran Islands too.

    Having your own transport would be a huge advantage as we arenot within walking distance of the local towns and shops. Whilst we can provide bikes, a vehicle would be a great option if you are to really benefit from exploring the area.

    Niamh and Sam

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    A stay with us will give opportunity to explore some of the beauties of The Wild Atlantic Way and the rugged west coast of Ireland - there is exceptional surf, stunning walks, traditional music and more. The cities of Galway and Limerick are within an hour and halfs drive offering arts, theatres, cinemas, gigs, award winning restaurants etc.

    We can offer the opportunity to learn cookery skills, sour dough backing, find out what goes into a hand-made chefs knife and get involved with growing vegetables for the family food table.

    The area is a stunning mix of wild coast line, rolling green hills and the famous Burren National Park and Aran Islands for some unique Irish experiences

  • Autres infos...

    Autres infos...

    We have a busy family home in which we enjoy our personal space but also love sharing with others - we often have friends over for dinner or diving in and out of the workshop or garden.

    We are both hard workers and enjoy working together and on our own, anyone coming to join us would need to be good both as a team or self directed and be comfortable to ask for further help where needed.

    We have both lived, worked and travelled around the world over the last 20 odd years or more and have relished getting stuck into many jobs, we would therefore prefer anyone coming to have a bit of life experience and savey - you will be helping in a variety of tasks including mucking in with the kids so over 21s would be preferable.

    There is no smoking in the house please, you can smoke in the garden should you wish.
