    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Farm work:
    Previous experience of working with animals would be a benefit but traveller would learn the day to day jobs of milking cows, feeding, cleaning out and bedding calves, maintenance and general farm duties.

    Travel potential
    Our location is convenient for touring places like Killarney, Dingle, ring of Kerry etc. whilst having a car is useful it's not essential, also we are happy to drop you to town/train bus station occasionally We have good bicycles on the farm and live in a rural area

    Irish country lifestyle & culture
    We have a glasshouse where we grow a lot of our own vegetables, we enjoy outdoor living, practice water sports, love animals. We have three dogs and plenty of cows/calves. Good opportunity for someone looking to improve their english. Our local village is about 2Km away and has a shop and to country pubs which are busy at weekends.
