  • Description

    Description

    I live with my partner in our home which is shared with our dogs.
    The house and grounds are in need of a lot of attention to restore her to her former glory.
    I’m easy going and pretty flexible.
    It would be great if you love animals as there are plenty to look after here.
    General maintenance,painting and gardening are on the list,along with cleaning out the stables,kennels and Cattery.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Northern Ireland has a huge amount to offer from historical sites, beautiful places to visit and friendly folk to meet.
    Visiting various cities and places from my house is very easy are we are close to all types of transport.
    I can teach you how to make our traditional breads and the famous Irish Stew!
    Also help with speaking English would not be a problem. If you want to learn how to look after different kinds of animals I can teach you.

    I live in a large country house beside Belfast International Airport. The house is being restored and is an ongoing labour of love. Ideally someone who enjoys gardening, and keeping things tidy outside would be great . Painting is also on the agenda.
    Travellers must love animals as there are quite a number of dogs and horses , a pet pig called Wobbly and 2 pet sheep, and a new arrival a little lamb!
    I would like to try to learn which ever language you speak and am also open to learning any musical instrument that you play.
    As I go along in my life I am always trying to improve this huge task I have taken on ! Slowly but surely I will get there...
    If you enjoy running you can pick a dog to run with you... some of them are rather over weight and would love to keep you company.

    What else ...

    We are about 20mls from Belfast where there are plenty of things to do. Visit the Titanic Centre and learn about her short life, the people who worked on her and the wonderful craftsmanship that sadly now is very rare.
    Visit the Giants Causeway and the rope bridge. The locations where Game of Thrones is filmed including The Dark Hedges. There are many more places to find and enjoy.

    We are a laid back couple who work hard so you need to be able to get stuck in and do things well.
    We are a non smoking home.
    Shoes must be removed in the house.
