Stay on a 100 acre sheep and cattle farm. Experience country living while only 25 minutes drive from Dublin City Centre. We are a family of 4 with 2 children aged 8 and 11. Next door is our 90 year old grandmother.
We are primarily looking for a companion for our 90 year old grandmother.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Our farm is located in the Boyne Valley, 40 mins from unesco site Bru na boinne, 20 mins from Trim the largest norman castle in Ireland. We are an ideal base for discovering the rich history of Ireland and only 25 minutes from Dublin City Centre. My husband is the 3rd generation of his family to farm.
My husband's 90 year old mother lives next door and we are looking for somebody to be a companion to her.
Make her tea, have a chat, play music, and walk with her in the farmyard. A paid professional comes every morning to look after her personal care which includes dressing and washing so you would not have to do any personal care duties.
She is in good health and likes to chat and go for short walks. Ideal for someone looking for a base to visit Dublin and surrounding areas.
We can offer a very comfortable room with own bathroom in our grandmother's house. Our grandmother sleeps downstairs so you would have the upstairs to yourself.
Their is a bus (111) from our village that brings you directly to Dublin City Center or if you go the other direction it brings you to the historic town of Trim.
