Currently not seeking helpers

We are a couple in our early 40's with a shared love of travel, the outdoors and the environment. We bought a house last year and are in the process of creating an orgainc herb and veg garden surrounded by wildflower lawns and native trees. It is currently in a very basic state.

We are looking for people with skills as stone masons/ general building for creation of boundary walls and raised beds. We also need to do some paving. We also be interested in people with landscaping general gardening experience/ interest. Or those with a enthusium and and interest in working outdoors.

Accommodation provided would be a private bedroom with attached bathroom and double bed (can provide seperate beds). You will have access to all the house facilities. WiFi, Kitchen, Laundry, sitting room. Note: we do not have a TV. Use of bicycles. It is a non-smoking house. Meals or food will be provided.

Helping hours would be about 25h a week open to negotiation.

Our house is located about 4.5km from Loughrea in county Galway, West of Ireland. A car would be advantageous but not necessary, we go into town on a regular basis.

Loughrea is a lively rural town located on a picturesque lake with plenty of shops and pubs and a varity of activities throughout the year

We are 40 minutes from galway city with its bustling atmosphere and stready stream of festivals and cultural events. There are several buses daily from Loughrea to Galway / Dublin and Dublin Airport. We drive in to Galway 2-3 times a week. We have both lived in Galway for 20 years and would be happy to show you the best Galway and the west of Ireland has to offer.
