    Update for September 2015 - apologies to anyone we did not reply to, we have not been hosting since Spring, as have been busy renovating the house.

    We live in an old coach house in Wicklow about 30 minutes south of Dublin and would be delighted to host workawayers who can lend a hand!

    We are Irish/Spanish couple in our 30s, our dog Muffin, and Keith the cat, though Keith lives outside.

    Nearest town is Greystones that has train links to Dublin and beyond, and also south to Wicklow. Greystones is on the Dart line which is the metro type train to Dublin.

    Below is a bit dated: we have now converted the garages to living space, and now painting etc and applying finishing touches. We need some help tidying the garden and yard immediately around the house. Most of the clearing land has been done.

    I have about 6 acres of garden and land here which is very overgrown, so need help clearing that and need help to plant it once cleared.

    Not sure yet exactly what to do with the rest of the land; I want to layout some of it for vegetable and build a chicken run. Definitely open to ideas with what to do with it all.

    Also help with restoring old stone walls, renovating the outbuildings, some painting and decorating in the house. Nothing too specialist though if you have building or carpentry skills/experience that is brilliant!

    In the short term my most pressing requirement is to fix the garden around the house and make it look pretty. No experience required for that, just enthusiasm and good ideas!
