  • Descrição


    We are a family of four humans (Ben, Sinead, Luka and Felix), a dog, and a cat. We live in an old farmhouse with rambling gardens, and lots of old sheds. If you like old things, this could be the place for you!

    This is a chance to see a part of Ireland far away from the tourist trail. The land around here is mostly agricultural. We don't have a farm but live on Sinead's family's farm, in the old farmhouse. We speak English, and tiny amounts of Spanish and French, and would be happy to spend some time working together on improving your English skills. You will get a chance to step back in time a little bit and get a glimpse of what it was like to live in rural Ireland in the past, all of the old buildings here have a story to tell.

  • Ajuda


    We are slowly renovating the house and property. Sinead's grandparents lived here, but it has been somewhat neglected for a long time. We need help with cutting hedges / lawns, tree pruning, wood chopping, restoring an old orchard, cooking ( we will cook for you, but we really love to eat food that other people cook). We are working on the house also, and could use some help with painting and other basic renovation jobs.

  • Acomodação


    We have a very large downstairs bedroom for workawayers. It is quite basic, with central heating and a stove. There is space for table chairs, wardrobe, and one double and one single bed. It would suit two friends or a couple. Foodwise, we will share a kitchen, (it is pretty basic basic!) and would love someone who would be happy to cook for everyone about twice a week. We have a solid fuel range, which is great for slow food. We eat meat, but also love vegetarian food. The range also means the house is always warm, and we have lots of hot water, great for a long hot bath at the end of a day's work!

    We live in a rural location, one hour's drive from the fabulous Galway city. The nearest town, Mountbellew is 10 mins drive (40 mins cycle) away,. There is also a train station 5 miles away, which will take you directly to Galway or Dublin. We both work in Galway for a local charity, and one of us goes there most days. On your days off you could travel with us. We have bikes for you to use if you want to explore locally. There are lots of country roads to explore. We also go to the bog, and harvest turf every summer. There is a lovely lake there for a swim ( 20 mins cycle from the house). On fine evenings, we love to make a fire outside and sit under the stars with a glass of wine, and you would be welcome to do so too.
    We hosted seven different workawayers in summer 2018, and several more in 2019, and had a fantastic experience with every one of them. We are nice normal people (!) , and our kids are great fun, they love to play, and get creative, and we all love to have new experiences.
