We have a very small (1 1/2 acre) smallholding in beautiful West Cork near the sea, mountains and woods. We are a couple with two children, two dogs and two cats. A busy household enjoying many activities - mainly Rugby, Swimming, Scouting. We enjoy cooking. We have a glasshouse and polytunnel, keep turkeys and chickens and grow our own potatoes and vegetables. You would be part of the family and eat with us (please note that as we raise our poultry for the table we do not cater for vegetarians). We can only take one person at a time but there are lots of helpers in the area and so there would be opportunities to meet others. We are hosts for the last few years and have met many wonderful volunteers. Over 21 please.

Work includes feeding of poultry, collecting eggs, planting, weeding, watering, harvesting and processing of food in season, general maintenance - cleaning, painting, fencing, lots of wood chopping. Occasional help in the house is also appreciated. Nobby works away from home during the day on weekdays so you would have to be comfortable working independently. It rains a LOT in Ireland and ground can be very muddy so sturdy boots and waterproof clothing are essential.
Own room in family home with bathroom.
We are surrounded by mountains and forestry so there are many beautiful walks to be had. There is a pier fairly close where we swim regularly and there is also a bicycle available to explore the area. The nearest (small) town is 6 miles away where there are pubs, restaurants, shops and a busy market each Friday. There are many Workawayers, Au Pairs, Helpers and Volunteers in the area so there are opportunities to meet others and socialise. A very laid back and friendly place.
