Welcome to celticspiral, our website about Off grid living in Mayo Ireland and the freedom it can bring.We live as self sufficiently and sustainably as possible.

 Irish traditional music plays a big part in this lifestyle.

To us each day is so full of magical happenings, the beauty of the morning air as we stroll down to the river for a dip, Will we see  Mr Hare? or the fisherman. What surprise has nature for us today.

Having the freedom to do these things is what makes life here so special, free, no boundaries.

What will todays work be, or the thought of meeting our friends for the tunes later ,all things of equal importance living here in the now. A place to experience a deep connection with nature.

We try to live as  practical a life as possible in  these days of grasping for material things. We have found a great  wealth of wisdom  is to be gained living this way,  something we like to share. We accept guests here to try out the lifestyle through helpx.

Of course for many the years of conditioning mask their true beauty and stop them from experiencing inner calm and peace. 


"Only two things are infinite,the Universe and Human stupidity.I'm not sure about the former"-Albert Einstein (1879-1955).
