  • Description


    Help welcome beside the sea on a mini farm in Castlegregory, Co Kerry, Ireland.

    We are a family of 4 with 2 children aged 11 and 13. We live beside the sea in one of the most beautiful places in Ireland. We have a mini farm with a dog, 2 Pigs, hens, 6 sheep and lambs and a big vegetable garden. We are an active family who do all the water sports available to us on our doorstep and we love the outdoor life. We live close by a water sports centre which is great fun in the summer. You can get everywhere very easily by bicycle if you want to go anywhere. If you like walking, running, photography, sea swimming or cycling this is the place to come to experience rural Ireland by the sea!! We need help in the garden, with the animals from.time to time and with odd chores around the house.

    Unfortunately we do not have room for more than one person so we can not take any couples. Also please keep in mind that we live in a very remote area and the closest village to us is 7 kms away. We have many neighbours and lovely things to do on our doorstep but if you want to be near a town well this probably isnt the place for you! Thank you.
