    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.

  • Help


    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.
