  • Description

    Description

    We are a young family, Marcus 38 from Ireland and Julie 34 from Denmark, with our daughter Luna from August 2016, son Oscar from November 2018 and Oisin from March 2021.

    We live in an old farmhouse that we just did a major renovation on. There is 30 acres of land and forestry where we have cats and a dog, a veggie garden, a poly tunnel, flower beds and plans of lots more. We have previously had a lot of animals but due to kids and work we have sold most of them, and now mainly focus on improving the house and garden. Our aim is to become somewhat self-sustainable. We have a lot of future dreams for this place and look at it as a creative, inspiring, fun lifelong project.

    Marcus works as a project manager with renewable energy. He also launched an outdoor adventure company a few years ago which brings people on tours rock climbing, hiking and kayaking in Ireland's ancient East and hidden heartlands. He's good at creating and fixing things and loves being outdoors. His biggest passions are rock climbing and hiking.

    Julie has a masters in anthropology with a specialization in spirituality, religion and shamanism and has done lots of self-development work especially through meditation and life-coaching. She has worked in a garden center, as a gardener, in an award winning health food shop, with homeless people in Dublin and recently as a project manager for the local town community website. Her biggest passions are gardening, pottery, the great outdoors and travelling.

    We both play music and sing and used to play together at wedding ceremonies and receptions. We also play in a band with two other guys and we used to play in pubs and at parties but are only doing occasional gigs at this time.

    Luna is a happy charmer full of beans and energy. She takes easily to people and is a chatterbox and a music box.
    Oscar is a very open, happy, strong little climber who loves hugs. Oisin is our little smiler and very content. They’re all generally good sleepers.

    We have both traveled a lot of the world but have now been home for the last 6 years building up our home. We see workaway as the opportunity to let the travelling come to us through people coming to stay instead of us going away.

    We love people and being social, fun, animals, nature, hiking, kayaking/canoeing, rock climbing, music and most of all we love adventures of all kinds.

    We are very positive, welcoming and open minded people.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    Volunteers have their own room and shared bathroom in the same house as us. They are treated as part of the family. We have a shared kitchen and living room, and a second sitting room for ourselves as sometimes we need headspace with the kids but we will most likely invite you into it most of the time.

    Autres infos...

    We live in a rural area surrounded by beautiful drumlin hills, rivers and lakes. We have bikes to give to guests and we drive into our local town regularly where you can come along. We love the outdoors and often go on hiking, kayaking, rock climbing and camping trips with friends where our volunteers will be invited along. Our volunteers will get to experience a real Ireland and will be welcomed into our circle of friends. We play music in local bars and enjoy a pint.

    We generally take people for 2 week stays. With stays longer than 2 weeks a house rule is for workawayers to go away for a weekend every 2 weeks, as this gives a bit of space for our family and likewise for the workawayer.

    Couples are very welcome.
    We don't plan very far ahead (we're last-minute sort of people), so please only write us max 2 months before you'd like to come, if you write us earlier than that you will most likely get a message to write back later.
