  • Description


    We have a charming old Georgian house above the beautiful town of Kinsale with stunning views over the town and harbour. We have a garden which has won many prizes over the years and we need lots of help with everything as i work full time with my own clothing design business in a studio on the property. We are looking for people who are willing to work outdoors in the garden and be creative helping us grow veg, and plant and maintain the various areas of the gardens. on rainy days there are household jobs we would appreciate help with. We will give you guidance as to what to do each day. We would love people love the outdoors and are keen to learn about plants and trees and work enthusiastically with them to come and stay with us in our beautiful home and give us some help and have fun!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have a large house and garden and are very sociable so often host large gatherings of interesting people so you will meet lots of people and have plenty of opportunity to speak English. We are only two minutes from kinsale town centre so you can enjoy the vibrant life of this charming town with ease and all it has to offer. I have a design business which I run from a studio in the house and so you can experience some creativity in many ways.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Kinsale is an amazing place. A vibrant town on the South coast of Ireland - one of Irelands tourist hubs. It is the gourmet capital of Ireland, a centre for the arts, host of the Irish Jazz festival annually and many sailing regattas etc. There is an excellent college in the town which people come from all over the world to attend and a great buzz and energy. West Cork is on our door step and there is an excellent bus service to and from Cork City. We live a few minutes walk from the town centre, with views over the harbour, in one of the most charming houses in the town, a large three story Georgian manor house with award winning gardens.

    I run a dynamic design business from our studio in the grounds of the house and we meet our clients at the studio daily. We have five self catering apartments on the property and so there are always lots of people around and it is a lovely household where we often entertain friends and host parties.
