We are a retired couple, with a live in friend who helps us., We live in an old flax mill complex in the midlands of ireland. we have 4 rescue dogs, who all live indoors with us. You need to like dogs to come to us !! and 3 cats. We need help with garden digging, general garden tidying and anyone with knowledge of brick laying or stone work repairs would be really good, because we could learn from you.
DIY and building projects
We hope we might learn about pointing and stonework from someone !
We hope to give someone the chance to explore Ireland and maybe learn a language .
We are usually busy with the horses until 11 when we have coffee, so nice if someone is happy to work on garden or stonework by themselves and then do 11.30 til 1.30. Useful to have your own transport for getting out and about, as our car insurance is only for named drivers.
own bedroom in separate wing of the house with kitchen facilities.
We prefer people easy to feed. No special needs - as we really are too busy to do special shopping and cooking. Dont come if you dont like animals !! Local transport is not good , Nearest town, Castlepollard is full of pubs , bars etc., and is 5 mins by car...and Mullingar is bigger and is about half an hour by car. There are buses from Mullingar and trains to Dublin.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
Maybe 4 hours a day for weekdays and weekends to relax or travel.
