  • Description


    We are a family who needs help to redecorate their new house. We are about to move into our Victorian period home which is in need of some upgrading. There is plenty to do as we have only recently moved. Especially cleaning, gardening and diy. We live in Dun Laoighaire a suburb of Dublin beside the beautiful Irish sea. Our home is only 30 min bus ride from the city centre and close to all amenities. Come and help us out and also experience the amazing Irish culture and landscape.

  • Help


    The house is old and we need help with getting it upgraded. We have had some workaway here with us who mainly helped doing up the basement apartment at the moment. We can definitely do with some helping hands. Skills like painting or carpentry could come in handy.
