  • Description


    Hi we are a family of four living on a small holding in Longford Ireland. We keep a few horses, dogs and a cat. We compete the horses during the summer months across the Island of Ireland. We are based in the middle of Ireland which makes us ideal for seeing the tourist sites both east and west. We are looking for help with our animals and children. We are only interested in volunteers who are 25+.

    Someone who is wanting to improve their English while being part of a family will enjoy living in the countryside and helping with the children and the horses.

  • Help


    We are looking for someone to join our family and help out with the regular day to day tasks about the house. Familiarity with horse would be a great as help during the summer in preparing the horses for competition would be great. We compete at horse driving trials which involves being away and the weekend and we'd love to share this with someone.
