    Hello !

    We are an Irish Family of five, myself and my four kids, with ages ranging from 20-27. My children are in college /working so it’s just me in the house at the moment, until they come to visit.

    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’m currently working on renovating 3 rooms so help with that would be appreciated.
    I also work away from home a few days a week so it would be reassuring for me to have someone in the house.
    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 suggest that here might suit an individual or couple with a car as there is limited public transport.
    There is a wide range of sports and general outdoors activities available locally. Bikes are available for use (if the weather is ok!!) We also have a horse, but he hasn’t been ridden out in a while, does enjoy a good grooming!
