    Description

    Hello !

    We are an Irish Family of five, myself and my four kids, with ages ranging from 14 - 21. My eldest 2 children are in college so there are only 3 of us in the house at the moment.
    We moved into our farmhouse 8yrs ago and have added to it but work still needs to be done to the house and land.

    There is 5 acres of land, I have just started a small kitchen garden, and am trying to build up the garden that I started over the past couple of years. There's always lots to do but mainly a general clean up and maintaining of what we have, and adding what is missing!
    I also work a couple of nights a week, so it would be reassuring for me to have someone in the house with the kids.
    We live in the countryside in Tipperary, Ireland. It's a beautiful place, with mountains and lakes nearby. The closest small town is a ten minute drive, and from there buses/trains to larger towns/cities are available.
    We are an outgoing family, into a wide range of sports and general outdoors activities. Bikes are available for use (if the weather is ok!!) We also have a horse, he hasn't been ridden in a while but is honest so any experienced rider will enjoy him.

    My son (19) speaks a little french - enough to get by and be understood but I unfortunately am no where near as fluent but am a patient listener and understand more than I can speak! I am happy to help improve your spoken English too (and written too if needed!)
