  • Description


    Hi. My name is Niall. I am a dairy farmer who needs a helping hand on my farm.

    My cows are about to start calving and help is required with the new born calves.

    The farm work is varied. No two days are ever the same. A lot of the work is seasonal. For example some of the jobs in Spring are cows calving, milking, feeding calves, selling calves at the mart, cleaning out calving pens and calf pens.

    I have a lot of plans to improve the farm and make it more efficient. If you have farming experience or building skills like carpentry, plumbing, welding, painting etc. then i would be delighted to have you stay on the farm.

    I will ensure that anybody who stays on the farm will be well looked after by my family and myself.

    I live in a very scenic and popular holiday destination. There are breathtaking views of the mountains and countryside. The farm is only 10 minutes drive from Killarney Town and Killarney National Park. There is no shortage of things to do in Killarney - walking, mountain climbing, cycling, watersports, shopping...

    2 bedroom traditional cottage. Both rooms ensuite . The cottage is very cosy and comfortable. The cottage is located about a mile from the farm and so it offers much privacy and independence for anyone residing there. Accommodation is offered in exchange for helping out on the farm with time off for sightseeing, exploring and leisure time.
