I am a small B&B owner (one guest room, one Glamping Pod and a Camper Van), photographer, videographer and sometime accountant. I am looking for help around the house & garden and with my 9-year-old dog Pedro, and of course for company. In return I will give you help with English and show you around the sites in our part of Ireland, as much as running the B&B will allow. I can also teach you photography, videography and sound and video editing as well, if you are interested.
The house is 6km from the local town where there are many shops and supermarkets as well as restaurants and public houses. The house is situated in a rural farming area, quiet except for farm traffic. I live alone, running the B&B as well as being active in Toastmasters, producing a weekly podcast and producing occasional videos for YouTube. I have a fairly large garden and enjoy gardening, though as I get older it is harder to get the work done!
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
I am very used to helping non-English speakers with the English language but I can also help with photography/videography as well as sound recording and production.
The main job is to help with looking after my dog and help around the house to free up some time so I can spend more time on photography and videography and to be in the house while I am away (though I do sometimes have a house sitter). You are welcome to stay for longer periods especially if you are interested in seeing more of the countryside around us or are interested in photography/videography (my passion).
English, little French, very little German, very little Dutch, very little Italian
You will have your own bedroom and of course the freedom of the house which you will be sharing with our B&B guests while I am here, but on your own (or with a housesitter) while I am away as I close the B&B then. You are welcome to join me for all your meals and I will provide food for you while I am away for you to prepare.
