  • Beschreibung


    Bill works as a General Manager in Research and Elspeth works as a PA. We have a tiny cat named Ohio and two chickens and some tropical fish, in our main house and another 2 dogs and 3 cats in small house.
    The time would be spent between both houses and someone that is used to having animals around is a must.
    The main home is a beautiful, private, period residence overlooking the sea in Cork Harbour, with extensive garden and these require lots of work.
    The smaller house is a brick built 130 year old house with lovely trees and small but private garden.
    Cobh is a very attractive, historic town. It was the last port of call of the Titanic and receives up to 70 plus cruise ships each summer.
    There are lovely restaurants and bars in Cobh. Many tourist attractions in neighbouring towns i.e. Blarney Castle, Midleton Jamieson Distillery, Kinsale Gourmet Food.
    Cobh is well equipped with sports clubs i.e. tennis, golf, rugby.
    We are both vegetarians!
    Use of private wooden outboard boat is available but your need your own insurance.
    Private large bedroom with beautiful sea view is offered.
    Non smoker preferred.

    The project is to maintain the mature gardens over a two months period of the summer.
    General up keep of grounds and indoor painting projects in the big house.
    The gardens in main house are extensive and there is a lot is heavy work, cutting back bushes and general upkeep of plants and grass. There is also an area to clear in the orchard and a project to make a workable compost heap.
    So someone who likes gardening is a must.

    There is a second smaller garden (where the 2 dogs and 3 cats stay) that will also require some tasks DIY and garden work and indoor painting in that house too.

    Some small tasks in the main house like painting and perhaps you can show us your cooking skills too (remember we don't eat meat).
