Castlehouse is in the third generation of my family and was originally built by my grand father, it is a house that oozes character and old world charm. My house has a sea and mountain view and is just a five minute walk to the beach, Renvyle where I live is on the Wild Atlantic Way in north Connemara one of the most beautiful parts of Ireland. Castlehouse is located in a small village that has two small and one large shops, another village 1.5 km away has a couple of pubs and restaurants. The bus service runs from Letterrfrack and I can drop you there if needed. Connemara National is 5 km away and Kylemore Abbey is 8 km. Any volunteer that comes will have the chance to improve there English and immerse themselves in Irish culture and our way of life, and you will have the chance to meet people from all over the world. Each volunteer will have there own private room with free wifi, you will be given three good meals a day and have two days a week off. You will also have the use of my mountain bike during your stay.
I also have a small sheep and Connemara pony farm and you are more than welcome to come along and see how things are done..
I have lived in Renvyle all my life apart from the five years I spent in boarding school. Cycling is my main hobby and the Renvyle area is well suited to it. I am a keen cook with an interest in experimenation I have been running a B+B since 1990 and I love meeting people from all over the world..I enjoy foreign travel and have visited most European countries. I am quiet an easy going person and I treat everybody with respect.
