    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our home is always busy with friends and neighbours popping in to say hello.
    We are happy for people learning English to practice their conversation skills with us.
    We would be happy to provide references for volunteers for work their time with us.
    Being in the tourism industry we could help with the planning of your Irish itinerary.

    We have a large garden which needs a lot of maintenance. We sometimes struggle to keep on top of it especially during busy parts of the tourist season. It includes lawn, flower and vegetable gardens.
    Also general outside maintenance e.g. painting of gates.

    We are beside the Blackstairs Mountains and scenic River Barrow which are very popular for walking cycling and running. We are 30 minutes from the medieval city of Kilkenny. 50 minutes from the city of Waterford and 80 minutes from Dublin.
    There are fantastic festivals in the local area from time to time.
    The festival of Writing and Ideas is normally in June as is the Carlow Arts Festival (Eigse)
    Kilkenny Arts festival is held in August.
    We are four miles from the Edwardian village of Borris and 4 miles from the busy town of Bagenalstown.
    Both have great pubs and there is traditional music played locally every week.
