  • Description

    Description

    - We currently have last minute availability-

    We are a family of 4, well 4 humans that is. There is 3 dogs, 1 cat, 1 pig and 11 hens and lots of cows. Mom and Dad run a very busy dairy farm. Our 2 boys (10 years and 4 years) help out where they can, but we're still down that extra pair of hands.

    It would be important that you love animals.

    If you would like to experience family life on a dairy farm in West Cork and you are a dedicated helper please send us a mail.
    We prefer for the workaways to stay for 3 weeks or more.

    We live in rural West Cork only 12km from the pictures town of Clonakilty and 18km from the famous Inchydoney Beach.
    The distance to the nearest village, Enniskeane, is 5km.
    There are good bus connections from the nearby villages. Cork City is 1 hour on the bus.
    We have two bicycles available for our workaways to use.

    We currently have no internet for workaways, due to very bad experiences on our part.
    Everybody has to look after their own, we have good coverage for mobile internet and prepaid devices are available from the mobile phone companies.
