    Beschreibung

    Bill works as a General Manager in Research and Elspeth works as a PA.

    We have some two dogs, two cats, three chickens and tropical fish. So someone who likes animals is a must.

    The main home is a beautiful, private, period residence overlooking the sea in Cork Harbour, with extensive garden and this garden requires lots of attention. Also DIY and painting may be required.

    The smaller house is a brick built 130 year old house with lovely trees and a small but private garden. General maintenance may be needed here.

    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 Jameson Distillery, Kinsale Gourmet Food.
    Cobh is well equipped with sports clubs i.e. tennis, golf, gym. It has a rail link to Cork city which is 22km away.

    We are both vegetarians! So would prefer if you were too, but is it not essential.

    Private large bedroom with beautiful sea view is offered.
    Non smoker preferred.
