The Barn Lodge

We are all very easy going people. We love to learn . My wife likes to learn different languages. She is learning Spanish and German slowly 😊 we love animals and nature . We are happy to welcome people to learn from them. We are environmentally conscious .

We are a married couple and live in a rural setting. Our uncle lives on the property too he’s an older gentleman smokes a pipe and tells story’s . Gerry is a local man who helps us out every week . We are very relaxed type of people. My wife is Shirley Veronica and we are both counsellors and life coaches. We work from home . We like the simple things in life . We have 3 dogs and 3 donkeys. A world of birds around us in the wild. We are beside a forest and we have beautiful nature walks and a lake near by . Ideally we would prefer a couple or two people travelling together at this time.

My stay at The Barn was great and the family was wonderful.

Very understanding, kind and always making sure I felt comfortable and safe. I thank them all for every moment they spent with me in which I learned and enjoyed a lot.

Improving my English, teaching a little bit of Spanish, living the Irish culture, meeting genuine pubs with very friendly people, are part of the memories I take with me.

I think that every Worldpacker should come here sometime in their life hahaha.

Thank you family and best wishes.
Hope to see you soon, greetings uncle Pat and everyone!

I know you! 🎵🎶🤣

This was a lovely stay. We were so welcomed and looked after the whole time, they really are like another set of parents. So caring and made sure we had everything we needed and then some. Definitely go to Monday night pub at least one time it’s really fun! They are very wonderful people! We will be back!

If you're thinking about joining The Barn Experience, you're doing the right thing. This place is magical!
Shirley, Martin, Evan, Anna, Jerry, Rachael and of course Uncle Pat will make you feel right at home. They are a loving and interesting family.
They asked me to help them with organizing a pop-up sale, cleaning and some marketing tasks.
I spent almost 2 weeks with them and the dynamic was so great that I regretted leaving so early. It was my first WP experience.

About The Barn itself, I can say that it's a very comfortable, nice and quiet place surrounded by nature. Super top 👌

It was my first experience as a voluntaree and I'm so happy to start this adventure with them in Ireland. They are a wonderful family. Their warm welcome and generosity made my time here truly special and part of their family. Always they ask how you fell and if everything it's ok.
I was a month with them and everything was lovely. The tasks are easy, simple and always you learn something new.
Even I had the opportunity to meet with two lovely guys from Chile.
Thank you Shirl, Martin, Uncle Pat and all family for everything. You did very warm my stay in this beautiful country!!

This was my first experience volunteering and I would happily do it again. They are a super welcoming family, from the first moment they were concerned about my well-being and offering help with everything. Ireland is a super cold place and they were always worried about making sure I didn't get cold. Shirley, Martin, Evan, Uncle Pat, Anna, Gerry and the dogs (Alfie, Arya, Diego and Polly) make this experience unique. They make you feel like you are one of the family.
Mainly the tasks are helping around the house and helping to make The Barn Lodge a welcoming place.
Thank you for everything!
