There is a large historic house, Doneraile Court set in a beautiful parkland. This offers wonderful walks swans and deer. Doneraile is about 30 miles from Cork city and there is a bus daily.

They live as part of the family and come with us if we go places. Their english will improve and as we live in a small town they will get to know neighbours and people in the town they will learn how to cook some Irish meals
We have spent quite a few years renovating a cottage and we now need to reclaim the garden, mainly the ditches,cutting back the brambles, mowing the lawn, making some veg patches and gardening. If there is no work going on in the garden then we require some assistance with housekeeping, cooking etc
We have one spare bedroom so we can accommodate a couple or two friends who would not mind sharing.
We also have a very comfortable caravan that is rigged up to electricity. We use it to go on holiday and it's really cosy
Our diet is mainly vegetarian but the odd steak gets in for the meat eaters. We do not mind smokers as long as they don't mind smoking outside. We like walking reading chess comedy and art.
