  • Description


    You will be welcome as part of our family with my husband and myself in Summerhill, Ireland. Help us to look after our dogs, cat and ponies. Some light gardening in our eco friendly garden.

    Myself and my husband would like someone who loves animals to stay at our house and look after our much loved animals when we are on holiday. Some light gardening might be required. We live a mile outside the historic and picturesque village of Summerhill in Co. Meath, which is 30km from Dublin. It is a short walk to the village where there are shops and a pub, or a bike can be used. When we are here we will provide transport to nearby places of interest. There is a daily bus service to Dublin .
    One or two workaways would be welcome and they do not require their own transportt.
