  • Description

    Description

    We live 3 miles from Castledermot co. Kildare on a tillage farm in a house that was built by our family in 1775. It was originally a mill house so we still have the mill race for swimming. We have the usual gambit of hens, peacocks and three horses.The garden around the house needs a lots of trimming down and replanting.
    We also need help in the house with painting.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This house is a heritage house that has been in the same family since it was first built in 1776. So there are many layers of family history. Workawayers benefit from thee fact that it is a working farm, that we have a great vegetable garden and that I work as a sculptor as well as running this house. They would also realise that we are interested in culture, music the arts and above all conversation.

    Help also welcome in the vegetable garden, also thinning saplings. Ability to use a small chain saw would be great and it would be an advantage if you could use a strimmer BUT its not a must.
