Our house is located in a scenic rural area outside Waterford City Centre in the Suir river valley in the South-East of Ireland. We have a big garden and the locality is very scenic. Our family consists of 2 adults and an 8 year old child. There are also 2 dogs, 4 cats, and Socki the pony. We generally have a few outdoor and eco projects going and would love to host somebody who could help us with these for a short while.
