    Looking for someone with a farming or animal background for a minimum stay of 2 weeks and a maximum stay of one month. Please look at our calendar as it is frequently updated and supply us with the dates you'd like to stay and for how long also we would love to hear about all of your farming experience!!

    We also accept couples where one person may help out around the house and garden and do some cooking and cleaning!! While the other farms!! Roles can also be swapped around or if there is no house work both workawayers can help on the farm!

    We would have to arrange a Skype call before your arrival just to build up a friendly relationship and to get to know one another better.

    We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic, determined and hard working. We would love if you had a genuine interest in the Irish culture and would interact with myself and my family to see how we live our lives! As we love telling old Irish tales!

    My name is John and My wife’s name is Noreen. We have 4 children Joy (28) Diarmuid (25) Billy (22) and Rachel (21). We are dairy farmers with 140 cows, so we are always very busy. We live in East Cork in the south of Ireland and we are a two minute drive away from our local beach (Garryvoe). Daily tasks include milking the cows every morning (7:00 am) and evening (4:00 pm). We are a very friendly family and we are very welcoming to new people. East Cork is a beautiful place to live and the views are amazing. We live very close to a small fishing village called Ballycotton and we are a 15 minute drive away from our local town called Middleton.

    We would need you to help milk the cows twice a day on a daily basis, feed the calves, we will teach you how to drive the tractor and the quad and general farm maintenance (such as cleaning out sheds, bedding animals with straw and assisting the cows while giving birth).
    Sometimes in summer we would need some help with gardening such as mowing the lawn and cutting back hedges!
