I’m Honor, and I live with my husband Owen, in our farmhouse in Blackwater, which is situated in County Wexford. We live on a farm, so you’ll enjoy an authentic rural Irish experience while staying with us. We enjoy GAA sports, spending time with our friends and family, as we regularly have people over for socialising.

Help in the house
Our family is extremely sociable, as there is always a lot of people around my home from various ages. Thus, you can learn a lot about different aspects of Irish life. We like to go to Irish sports games such as GAA and have regular get-togethers.
As well as learning English, and the southern Irish dialect, you can benefit from an immersive Irish experience. You will learn about our food, pastimes and culture, and I can teach you about our heritage. I can also show you how to bake and cook traditional Irish dishes such as Irish Brown Bread and Bacon and Cabbage.
We live on a farm, so we’re around a lot of animals, from cattle to dogs and a cat!
Ideally we’re looking for someone to be part of our family, help in our day to day lives and someone to share our culture with and learn about yours!
Volunteers help out approximately 5 hours each day, helping with general housework, gardening and cooking! This help will be in our private home, not in our businesses.
