Our sheep farm is located at the beautiful cliffs of Downpatrick Head in the North of County Mayo. On a 200 acre farm, we breed the Lliyn and the Mayo Mountains Horny sheep, working with two fully trained collie dogs. During the lambing season (starting from March to April), we have a lot to do, caring about the new-bornís (assist with birthing, feeding with baby bottle, health issues). We also worked with veterinary students in the past. Furthermore, we offer a Polytunnel and are home of 30 hens, producing free-range eggs for my family. Our water comes from our own spring well on the farm site. The farm is supported by my two sons, 15 and 17 and one daughter., and one or two helpers(preferably over the age of 20). There is a independent 2 bedroom accommodation for helpers. We are working to offer you your own kitchen as soon as possible (as work is in progress, you can share a kitchen in the mobile home). We are looking forward to meeting you and are most happy to support you in learning English, meeting local people, sharing pub nights and traditional dance and showing you one of the most scenic parts of the Irish West Cost.there are bicycles available also
