Castlehouse B+B

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 one small and one large shops, another village 1.5 km away has a couple of pubs and restaurants. 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. Accommodation is a mixture of private and dorm where you will share with just one other person and this is only in peak season. Sorry lads but I only accept ladies as I don't have enough separate accommodation.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.

I stayed at castlehous BnB for 3 weeks, it was a very fun experience! John was a kind host and an amazing cook, we always ate around 22u/23u. The 5hrs of work were respected, but communication could be bit better from time to time. The rooms for the volunteers are nice, and we always had an opportunity to shower since we could use the empty guest rooms of John's shower. I really enjoyed my stay and John is great host with a very kind heart!

My time in Tully went by too fast! John made me feel welcome in his home. We had amazing talks while enjoying home-cooked dinners. The workload was really fair and we had a lot of time to explore Connemara’s beautiful landscapes. I could 100% recommend the Castlehouse B&B!
Working with John gave me the perfect opportunity to meet people from all around the world, immerse into the local culture and explore the stunning Renvyle peninsula.

I had a great time staying with John! He is a welcoming person, he is very generous and drove me around, often. My free days were always respected and there were fantastic places to go and things to do. We had very nice and funny chats with him.
The work hours were respected and the work was very manageable and as described.
The guest rooms had to be cleaned properly and with care, of course ;)

You should be a sociable person, as you are staying in a home. He loves to have chats! :))
I would definitely recommend!!
