This is a private house and grounds. WE are situated on the River Blackwater and over looking the Nagle hills. This is a very peaceful and rural setting. We have lived here 12 years and have restored the house and now we are concentrating on the grounds. WE have a walled vegetable garden and woodland that is in need of help with clearing etc. We are a husband and wife team with three adult children, two of whom live in London and the youngest is home during the holidays. I run an interior design business from my studio in the house and my husband is busy in the garden and helping me with the business. We live in a Georgian house and there is plenty of room and we have two dogs Reggie and Minty.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We live in a beautiful part of Ireland over looking the Blackwater River and Nagle hills. I hope travellers will gain knowledge of this part of the World and general gardening and delicous cooking. My husband is keen musician and we live in a Georgian House that is close to Fermoy and Mallow towns.
We are looking for help with our garden. We have a vegetable garden and extensive woodland and walkways to the river. I would like to have help clearing, strimming, weeding and general help with the grounds.
The accomodation is in our house and very comfortable. There is a newly decorated bathroom with a fabulous high pressure shower. Dinner is usually when we eat our main meal and it is fun if we can all help out. workawayers can help them selves to breakfast and lunch.
Mallow (12 miles away) has a main line station that goes to Dublin, Cork and Tralee. Mallow and Fermoy are on good bus routes too. Blarney is 30 minutes away and Cork city 45 mins away by car. Buses to Cork are quite frequent. Cork City and County Cork have lots of interesting sights on offfer
