First i will tell you ,after this summer which was a huge success with helpers i only take people for one month or more.
I live on and help look after a small holding in the beautiful Nire Valley. I need help with the garden and other maintenance. I teach yoga for a living , and I have taught English as a foreign language in Spain a long time ago!
We have Kerry bog ponies and we need help working with them , as well as gardening. Really most of the help is needed March til mid august ,I will consider having guests at other times.
I have two cat, Co Co who lives outside and is still fairly wild ,he is big black and handsome and I can stroke him now. Also Kiki who is more of a house cat she had kittens this year although they have been found homes .Two cats are enough I want some birds too!
This is not a busy community it would suit somebody who likes peace and quite. We have no TV or WiFi although there is good connection for Internet on our phones. We are seeking a sustainable lifestyle.
I look after this neglected but enchanting place, bringing it slowly back to its former glory;
If you fancy helping get in touch. Thanks for reading!
