  • Description


    My name is Bella, I work in my family business in Dingle town which specializes in hand cut crystal which my father makes himself by hand (whiskey glasses, wine glasses, bowls & vases etc). We are in business over 20 years in Dingle and It is thriving and very busy during high season (spring/summer) which therefore means that my father now has less and less time to put into his own home such as general household maintenance like gardening and general yard maintenance (deck painting, painting of walls, house etc). we have a stone cottage that is used for guests which would be available for the helper while they stay and help us out. We will provide food for them as well as a safe, happy, friendly and welcoming environment

    Helpers can avail of many free traditional Irish music gigs in many of our wonderful pubs in the town, there is plenty to do and see, lots of beaches for surfing, lots of hills and mountains to hike and climb. There is nearly always some sort of festival going on in Dingle. We can possibly provide a bicycle if needed so that they can cycle in and out of town on their time off. We will also take them on a drive around the peninsula to show them the sights of the area. We will make them feel comfortable and at home.
