    Hello!
    We live in an amazing house which sits in a large garden. We love this place and have loved it for 20 years but now it is too big for us. Now we are preparing the house to be sold to someone else who will love it as we have. Our four girls grew up here and they are now all adults and some of them have already moved to other exiting places. We have quite a lot of projects to do outside the house (and if it's too wet outside there is plenty to do inside also) and there is not enough time for the two of us to do it on our own. We love animals and have horses, sheep, dogs and one cat. The horses are mainly broodmares and young stock, our ewes are about to lamb sometime in April and we have two lovely dogs, Sybil and Storm, they live inside the house and they are good company and great 'helpers' outside. Our cat lives outside.
    Eamon is an Irish farmer and is originally from East Galway where he grew up on a farm, Anna is from Sweden and came to Ireland 30 years ago, helping with horses.

    When our girls where small we ran a guesthouse with a restaurant in the house but now we are both working from outside of home to make ends meet. So there is no business here now, just our home.

    Eamon is very interested in Irish history and he knows a lot about the area and generally loves to talk about this. He also loves his animals and as we have a few ewes there will be opportunity in April to be part of the lambing. We are expecting foals also in the summer. Overall we are happy to exchange experiences and will welcome you into our family and do our best to make you feel at home.

    We are looking for someone who is willing to help outdoors. Preferably with some experience of old gardens. The help is mostly consisting of maintenance of the gardens. We are also looking for someone who can help us feed the horses and mind the dogs and the house when we're at work ourselves. As we are planning to have the house ready for sale sometime in the summer, we need help to clean up outside and in the various sheds on the grounds. We need someone to help us keep on top of the growth in the garden particularly the ivy which is covering the old stone walls. The garden has many different trees and plants and it is really a lovely place to hang out in. We have an old oak tree which is said to be older than the house and one part of the house was built in 1714, which makes the tree very old. The tasks can be quite physical and it is not always certain to have nice sunny weather in Ireland. If the weather is too bad to be outside, there is cleaning, painting or small maintenance projects that can be carried out inside the house.

    We can offer en suite bedrooms and there is plenty of space to hang out in the house. The kitchen is large and it would be lovely to share the cooking, but only if you want to. We will try to eat at least one meal per day together which will give us opportunity to share stories.

    The Georgian town of Birr, our nearest town (less than 10 minutes drive) is beautiful and there are lots of lovely coffee shops and pubs. Birr castle garden and Science centre is open to the public and very much worth a visit. There are other interesting visitor attractions in the area and we are not too far from the Slieve Bloom area with its hills and rivers. There is a bus stop about 800 meters from the house which can take you into Birr and to Tullamore which is a bigger town and which has a train station. We have bikes that you can use also.
