    If you feel 'drawn' to Ireland, Connemara in particular... the place is riddled with History and very unspoilt. Wonderful scenic location with endless walks, empty beaches, and a superb local community. Plenty to engage with depending on yr interests. I've a good library and a lot of friends in the Arts who visit regularly. Plus it's a great place to engage with traditional Irish music. However it IS Connemara so the weather can be woeful betimes.

  • Aide


    Enthusiastic help with gardening and helping maintain/improve the old house which has a fascinating history. Plus am pondering starting a herb growing business...so anyone interested in natural medicine wd be good. Or someone bursting with ideas on how to develop this extraordinary place that I'm privileged to own as I have extra 'acres' that I'm longing to do something with.

    I provide seperate accomodation mit bathroom & yr own cooking facilities ; however we usually cook & eat together in the main house when it suits and there's interesting people for you to meet. Have a seperate 'laundry' room for all washing etc...plus a really useful 'workshop' for anyone interested in carpentry.

    Cleggan is the village nearby (one mile away) the nearest town is Clifden (seven miles) if you drive can put you on my insurance. Always LOTS to do in the area if you're motivated, and there's buses to Galway twice daily if you need blast of the city. I've had good experiences with 'wwoofers' over the past few years; they've all remained friends; but having (due to family circs) been away for a while ...thought on my return to expand the notion of having people here....simpatico folk who might have a reason to want to re-locate to Ireland and perhaps myself and The Old Rectory might prove a useful launching pad? In exchange help me take care of the place as I'm in the middle of research/writing a book and managing the place whilst doing same is proving a bit too much.
