irish family


You want to speak English?

You want to learn how to work with animals on a farm?

You want to experience nature?

You want to be a part of an Irish family?

We’re living in the countryside of Ireland keeping up a mixed farm of cattle, sheep, horses, ducks and chickens. Be part of our family – eat and take care of the farm with us. That’s the best way to learning English and discover farming in it’s traditional way.

Let our home be your home on your stay: We have nice accommodions for guests upstairs with they own bathroom and good access to internet and TV.
In the morning we have a real irish breakfast together and lots of cups of tea all day long and a family dinner in the evening.
The traditional open turf fires keep us warm when we let the day slip away.

Even though we live in the countryside we are not far from civilization, everything is accessible with one of our bicycles. The train station that will bring you to Galway city in no time is only 20 minutes away by bike.
