    Description

    Looking for healthy, adventurous and cheerful people to help us with DIY in an old house and garden in Connemara for 2 weeks and then move to central Dublin for 2 weeks. We are mom, Orla, partner Joao, 25 year old son Will and daughter Jane. Oh, and there is Henry and Sally, our large rescue dogs we found in Spain.

    Nice accomodation and good food in return for help with gardening, painting, moving furniture around and dog minding/walking. The garden needs a lot of work! Anyone with "green fingers" or good DIY would be a blessing.

    We speak differing levels of French, Spanish, German and Portuguese, besides English, and we are well travelled and outgoing.

    We are well travelled and friendly. We are Irish - Joao is Portuguese - and talk about Ireland and Irish culture. We enjoy mixing with different cultures and talking about international affairs. Mom and daughter have spent 2 years in Spain. We lived in central London for a long time and also Brussels and Dublin. Mom now lives mostly in Portugal.
