  • Description


    We live in a very picturesque location on the banks of the River Barrow between Carlow town and Kilkenny City and we need help for our big garden and house with all kind of work and new projects. We have also a houseboat- barge on the River, and altogether there is always a lot to do in and around the house. We would need some trained and skillful helping hands with practice - we do not have the time to teach you and we do not need helpers for homework ,shopping, cooking, child and pet minding, we need more experienced help for building and technical related jobs, like electrics, mechanics, machinery there is some outdoor and garden work, so if you are interested in helping us, please ask us for more details.

    We are, Josie - Irish, Teacher and principal of a small primary school and Fritz - Austrian living for over twenty years in this beautiful country, retired and still very busy managing the house, garden, houseboat and our life.

    Tell us about yourself and your background and what exactly your skills are and what work exactly you can offer, let us know about your family, education, hobbies and what you are interested in. We offer you nice warm rooms in our brand new Guest Bungalow with TV, WIFI, your own bathroom and good healthy food and you will soon feel like at home with us.

    If you like to come to us, please send us your email to with your information and you will hear from us soon.
