  • Descrição


    The cottage is situated on an acre and a half of meadow, young woodland, ponds and garden polytunnel. It is also home to a listed megalithic site. My aim is creatively to reinstate the vitality in land as it might have been 4,500 years ago when the megathlithic tomb was constructed. While not listed as organic, I have worked in a collaborative way to co-create a beautiful biodiverse haven and do not the use chemicals on the land.
    I am self taught and would welcome visitors who can help out with ideas to support and tend the house and site in an effective and time saving manner. I would also welcome someone (maybe a writer, musician) who has some practical skills to share, is proactive and generous and would like to spend some time soaking in the gifts that this mystical and musical part of Ireland has to offer.
    I work as a psychotherapist and the surrounding land is used as a resource for clients. I also host occasional retreats and group events using the house, consulting room and grounds are used as a psychotherapy retreat space.

    The cottage is situated close to several scenic beaches with a distant view of the sea from the house. A short walk from the house, here is a shop, pub and a bus stop for a service that connects with Sligo town and Bundoran in County Donegal. Good surfing and sailing within a 20 minute drive.
    The guest bedroom is in a private part of the house and has a comfortable king-size bed and is tastefully decorated with an adjacent bathroom. We are vegetarians and generally prefer to have a meat free house.

    Please make your initial contact through the Helpx site letting me know what draws you to us and what you might have to offer.. Thank you.

    The Cottage is situated in an area steeped in ancient history, including megalithic and iron age monuments. There are many local beaches within walking and cycling distance. A surfer's haven. 5 minutes walk from the local link bus which will take you to Sligo or Bundoran in co. Donegal. Many opportunities to listen to and play music. Many poets, writers and artists choose to come and live in the area. Sligo town is a 20 minute drive away and had many cafes, 2 theatres, an excellent art gallery and a small museum. There is also an armada museum in Grange (10 minutes on the bus from the house)

  • Ajuda


    Gardening, general upkeep of house and land and taking a part in preparing meals. Any carpentry maintenance skills would be great, but what is essential is a generous spirit and a willingness to give - this inspires commensurate generosity in me!
