  • Description


    My brother and I have a country house in Ardcroney outside Nenagh. We have a unique wedding venue located in the heart of the country. The house is a 17th century country house and there is 76 acres of woodland and lots of interesting wild life. We have lots of local people employed who have a real interest and passion for this house and the area.

    UPDATE: We are currently looking for volunteers only who can help our gardeners Abraham and Tereza in the garden.

    - your country must be on Ireland's green list
    - we can only offer payment to Workawayers who ALREADY posses a valid PPS number.
    - we cannot accept Workawayers from the USA unless you have a work visa, as volunteering is now classed as
    'work' by immigration services

    Due to the high demand we are unfortunately unable to respond to every message we receive but we will do our best.

    Travelers can benefit by seeing how a small hotel runs and by meeting people from all over the world. We also have a really good team of staff from the local community who are very friendly and who can give you a good insight into life in Ireland. All our staff and Workawayers are very friendly and helpful. Nenagh is a vibrant town with lots of local shops and good transport. We have a boat on the lake facing the house that makes for a lovely adventure on Lough Ourna.
    We look forward to hearing from you.

  • Help


    During the week, help is mostly needed in and around the house. This is an old country house, so general maintenance, gardening, landscaping work, light housework (such as doing the dishes and helping in the kitchen) are potential work places for our volunteers. There is no set work schedule throughout the week and the days and hours vary depending of the scheduled events of the week. However we will make sure you get enough free time + the 3 days off which are guaranteed anyway.

    What else ...

    Nenagh is only 3 miles away and people can give you a lift to Nenagh. Cycling to Nenagh is possible but only for adventurous volunteers aware of the Irish way of driving! There is nearby hiking in an area called the Silvermines. The castle and town are very interesting. Lots of transportation to all the nearby cities. Limerick city is 30 miles away. Dublin airport is 2 and a half hours away with regular buses to Nenagh. The easiest way to get to Nenagh from Dublin airport is by bus, check out Bus Eireann (line X12) or JJ Kavanagh&Sons for further information.
