    Looking for some Farm and Stables Help - preferably someone who likes most of all Children, Animals and interacting with people.

    We are located beside the Sea and we have a Cat, Dogs and Stables with Horses.
    (Person must not be allergic to any of the above)

    Help includes animal care and general maintenance of the farm including cleaning stables and feeding

    If you are able to handle and ride, there is opportunity to ride the horses.

    A good level of English is needed and a we are looking for a social, friendly person.

    Non Smoker essential.

    This is a lovely quite area, it will not suit someone looking for a party lifestyle / or active nightlife, as its out in the countryside.

    Also but not limited to some after-school childcare help but not an obligation.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    A great opportunity to learn English.

    Immerse yourself in Irish culture and learn about life in the West of Ireland.

    Will not suit the party / socialite lifestyle as we live a good distance from the town/city/village and Public Transport is a long distance away.

    Situated in a small village, near the Sea with lots of Fresh Atlantic Air!
