  • Description


    Hi, my name is Tim, I live on my own in a beautiful part of the country. I am 49 and have two grown up daughters who visit from time to time. I am separated from my wife but we are on very good terms and she visits regularly. I would love to have people come and stay with me and help them to improve their English while helping me to do some painting and decorating in my house and some landscaping outside. I have two beautiful dogs, three naughty cats and four friendly hens. I also have 3 bee hives and hope to have more in 2020 and I get lots of honey and start up a small business selling the honey.

    We live in a lovely part of County Tipperary, we are very near the galtee mountains and the Glen of Aherlow. There are beautiful walks and forest trails nearby. I go walking quiet a bit and would be more than happy to bring our volunteer out and show them the area. I am seven miles from the nearest town and three miles from our nearest village. I am a beekeeper with 3 hives at the moment.
