I am a middle aged man, widower of 5years. I live in county Kildare, about 40 minutes from Dublin, in rural Ireland on a farm, with a 20 year old forest. The house is quite secluded, down a long country avenue. Farm and forest adjoins bog of Allen. . I also have 2dogs, hens, ducks and 2 donkeys.
I would prefer volunteers over the age of 20 who are quite self sufficient, able for physical tasks and are happy to stay far from a town.
Tasks would include between 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week. I live around 10 minutes drive from the local town, Enfield and would be willing to drop and collect you to local transport (trains and buses) with notice at weekend.
House has good WIFI and Sky TV.
Food will be available and helper will have use of kitchen. Dinners will be cooked by host most days, but you may be required to cook for yourself occasionally, when I'm not available.
No smoking in the house or forest.
Good spoken English essential, as you must be able to understand instructions for health and safety purposes.
