  • Description


    Hi Everyone,
    I am an Irish woman in my mid 40s living in the beautiful Beara Pennisula.
    Thanks to lockdown I was able to move here last year (Feb 2021) from an apartment in Dublin and work remotely (as a Software Developer).
    I love nature, hiking, kayaking , swiming ,snorkeling, cycling, as well as crocheting and during lockdown I took up the piano .

    Before lockdown I travelled around western Europe for a year doing workaways and really enjoyed it. Now I am in a position to offer the same hospitality to other travelers .

    It is an old house, in a beautiful location , 12km from Kenmare town in a place called Tuosist (Tuath di Siosta - old irish for People underneath or The old irish Fairies) If you love history , then you will love Beara as it is steeped in history, with evidence of people here as far back as the Bronze age.
    One of the lakes near my house has a beautiful stone circle , as well as a burial mound from the bronze age. The lake is called Gleninchaquin, (Aquin - is old irish for the Queen of the Fairies)

    Over the last year I have built a couple of raised beds, got a bee hive (kept in another location) , a piano and a couple of kayaks. I am looking for some help to clear a large overgrown bed in the back of the garden and to do some general maintenance around the place. My aim is to grow my own vegetables and fruit and to forage as much as I can. Would also like some help with foraging and cooking. I love to cook and would love to share some of my favorite recipes.
