  • Description


    Hi, We live on a rugged farm in a very scenic part of West Cork. The farm is very natural and beautifully wild. We have a herd of Connemara ponies that roam the mountain, ancient native forrest and fields. We live with our two daughters, 14 and 16, dog, cat and chickens in an old farmhouse that we have done up.

    There is a garden around the house that we made but has become neglected over the last year due to being very busy with work, we run a number of businesses including a pizza cafe and dairy in our local village . We would love someone (or a couple) to help retrieve and maintain the garden at home and do a number of projects outside. We have a very cute and comfortable caravan beside the house for you to stay in. The bathroom is in the house but very close.

  • Help


    We'd love help in the garden. We just don't seem to have time at the moment and don't want to let it get totally overgrown. There is a small vegetable garden and a number of pretty natural sitting and lawn areas around the house. we also have a shed that is in need of clearing.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Where we live is in an unspoilt natural area with beautiful natural walks. The nearest village is about 4 miles away, we can provide a bicycle and of course lifts when we are coming and going. The nearest town is about 8 miles and offers restaurants and supermarkets again we can offer lifts. Cork city is a forty minute drive/bus journey and has shops and tourist areas. There are loads of areas of scenic beauty to visit and explore near by. It is quite remote and isolated.
