    Help in any area of below list would be good.

    1. General assistance within our house as my energy levels can sometimes be low.

    2. Gardening - general tidy and help alongside my husband with removing some old small trees in the garden.

    3 If interested in old furniture - antiques and restoring them, again it would be great to meet someone with these talents.

    4. Optional :Sewing machine skills, only required for repairs of small items of clothing.

    5. If knowledge on Digital Marketing/Social Media that would be of great help to me, as this is an area that I need to get better on.

    Not all above required at any one time. If interested in any one area of above, this would be a great assistance,

    We are a family of four, my husband has a tillage farm, and this is eco- themed. We also have two holiday houses which are rented to tourists during the tourist season. Our local town of Kilkenny has a Castle and attracts lots of tourists and a good social town. We have two school attending boys, aged 11 & 13 years. Due to my health not being 100% at this time, due to my energies some jobs can be a little challenging at times.

    We are both involved in tourism at a local level and hold annually a Heritage Week event during the month of August - Irish Music and Dance. (not in the present time - due to Covid)

    On days off, we provide bicycles to travel around the local area, lovely villages of Paulstown, Gowran and Goresbridge, which has the River Barrow, nice for walks/cycle or activities during summer on the river. We will drive you to bus ( Gowran or Paulstown) which has connections to Waterford and Dublin (frequently troughout the day). We offer own room, wifi in house, shared bathroom, meals, bicycle use and transport to local buses. We frequently travel to Kilkenny, so a lift will be available or other local towns

    We aim to make your time with us as stress free and enjoy what Ireland has to offer, in return all we want is an extra pair of hands around the house/Garden.

    Only apply for position, if you feel you can adapt into our family life, engage in conversation, and enjoy our culture.

    We are an easy going but busy family so it's important that you would be able to jump straight in and be self motivated and be enthusiastic, we will teach you some new skills in our area of work, but we would like you to have some skills also.

    We have 2 cats.

    Arbeit

    1. Help in house - general

    2. General outdoor duties: gardening


    Sewing or updating old furniture (upholstery ) skills. This is a hobby of mine and wouldn't mind meeting someone with similar interests.

    On days off, if staying around house for meals, help with meals times is expected, e.g. prepare table setting, wash up or clean out dishwasher. We feel this is a reasonable request.
