Accomodation provided on a short-term basis in a bungalow in south Connemara on the shores of Galway Bay in exchange for housework and cooking. Also open to the idea of someone staying for a longer period of time, perhaps as part of a hybrid arrangement where you pay some rent, but at a reduced rate in exchange for help with housework.

The location is very special, on the Wild Atlantic Way in beautiful countryside near the sea and half an hour from the vibrant city of Galway. It is in the heart of a Gaeltacht or Irish-speaking area - I speak four languages, including English and Irish. Spiddal village is nearby, as is a beautiful native woodland and river, and the wild bogland. It would suit a self-contained, quiet and independent person who likes the country life.

Spiddal village has several shops and pubs, a pharmacy and other amenities. It is a lively place, especially during the summer, and there is music in the pubs several evenings a week, including traditional Irish music and more contemporary songs. The vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Galway with its thriving arts and music scene is half an hour by bus with a reasonably frequent service.
