  • Description


    My Husband and I built a house here in Waterford when we moved to Ireland three years ago. I am retired and my husband is a lorry driver. I am 64 and have grown up children and six grandchildren who live in Uk and Dubai.
    We have nearly three acres of land and live in a rural location we have a number of animals some rescues including three Irish Wolfhounds one st Bernard x Wolfhound rescue, a German Shepard, a Whippet and a Jack Russell. Two of the Wolfhounds and the St. Bernard live in the house and are part of our family although they are only allowed in the kitchen family room. So any one living with us would have to be happy sharing a seat with them. We also haveTwo retired horses and two rescue ponies, four cats a cockerteil and a number of chickens.
    Our garden is still very much under construction

    What else ...

    Helpers would have the opportunity to visit towns such as Waterford Dungarvan and Cork as there I a good buss service running from Dungarvan. There are local beaches and moorland walks. We have a very quaint pub within walking distance with music on a Saturday evening mainly locals attend. The only thing we would ask is that workers respect our home and animals and are happy to be part of our family throughout their stay. We are a non smoking household so smoking not allowed anywhere in the house.
