  • Description


    Can you drill holes? Use a measuring tape? Work a wood saw? If so we need you!

    The Location:

    I live with my 2 dogs in a beautiful Tipperary. An 1850s farmhouse on a 70 acre farm in the countryside. I am developing a small off-grid village. Some of our work in progress is pictured below.....

    The Work:

    Painting, gardening, clearing out sheds, fencing, renovation, repairs. Enthusiasm, a good work ethic and an ability to work as part of a team - essential. Also, we share the cooking. All can be learned on the job.

    If you have particular skills working with wood, a drill, a saw, an angle-grinder etc - then PLEASE get in touch. We need lots of helping hands so fear not, if it is your first time.....you can learn from others.

    Handy with a shovel - I need you! We still have a lot of tidying up to do in the gardens and grounds. You can dig - you're IN!

    We are very relaxed here - it is peaceful and beautiful - lots of forest walks, green fields, hills and old castles to visit nearby. Lots of down time.

    Meals are a joint effort. Everyone is asked to pitch in with the grocery shopping, cooking and cleaning up. I pay - you eat!

    You will have warm comfy private room - my house is BIG. I also have beds in our yellow caravan and tiny teardrop camper.

    Amazing wifi!!!!

    Volunteers must be willing to pitch in and do anything that needs doing - from emptying the composting toilet to feeding the doggies. You are expected to work 5 hours per day 5 hours a week. Food included. Fun guaranteed!

    We LOVE musicians here and have a piano, guitar and banjo!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Traditional Irish farm dating back to 1850s. Opportunity to experience and explore the beautiful Irish countryside, and meet the locals in a small, friendly, rural community.

    Learning about living the Good Life, and the Sharing Economy. Opportunity to offer your own ideas.

    I am a novelist, with a great interest in literature, so there is a large library of books - mainly in the English language, with some in French.
