  • Description


    I have traveled the widely and lived in several countries and love spending time with people from different cultures. I speak English and French. I own a cottage in the Irish countryside, and I need help to make it even more magical. Helpers will have a private part of the house, with their own sitting room and fire place. There location is remote and peaceful, nothing but birds signing. I have a piano and guitar, creativity and music are welcome. You area has its own wifi and Sonos sound system.
    Two People Together ONLY. My rules are no meat (just fish) or smoking in the house (lots of outdoor areas to smoke) and I do not drink alcohol and you can if you want, as long as there is no drunkeness. There is a very serene energy that I want to keep. It would be ideal if you had a car, but if not there bikes, it is a few miles to the bus stop, and I can take you up to Dublin any day that I go to work.

    At the moment I am looking for people with gardening, landscaping or building skills. I want to develop the garden this spring. As well as digging and planting, projects include making structures from pallets such as a planter beds and a hen house and a greenhouse. Eventually I would love cobb structures if someone had these skills, and a pond. One day a week will be for house cleaning and garden maintenance. If you can cook great! I am out at work or often travelling during part of a workawayers stay, so the most important job of all is feeding and being kind to the cats!

    What else ...

    Where I live is very isolated, one and half hours from Dublin, but the nearest bus is 5K. There are bikes, a taxi service, and I drive to Dublin 2 days a week so can take you if you want to go. I am happy to show you some local sites. If you want to smoke etc. that is fine outside. You must also like cats, they are family! This place is so quite and dark at night, it is really suitable for people looking for a peaceful break away from stress, there are no other people around. I have a piano and guitar and you can paint, write and make music here. I do not drink alcohol and although I do not mind if you have a few drinks, I do not want drunkeness, heavy drug use, or couples arguing. I do not have meat in the house, except fresh fish.
