  • Description



    My cottage in the Irish countryside, a very remote and peaceful place, so I take Two People Together ONLY -
    I do not have meat in the house (only fish) and there is a serene energy, so looking only for people who like a healthy peaceful lifestyle .
    The help is gardening and house maintenance and furniture painting. I am away most of the time when I get workawayers so I need people who are energetic and self motivated and trustworthy. Watching the cats is a big part of staying there, they are very freindly so cat lovers only. If you are looking to improve English maybe it is not the best place. It would be ideal if you had a car, but if not there bikes, it is a few miles to the bus stop. I have a piano and guitar, creativity and music are welcome. You area has its own wifi and fire place and is private.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I am away alot so if you main goal is to learn English this may not be the place for you, as there is no one else to talk to.
    This place is so quite and dark at night, it is really suitable for people looking for a peaceful break away from stress, there are no other people around. I have a piano and guitar and you can paint, write and make music here. I do not drink alcohol and although I do not mind if you have a few drinks, I do not want drunkeness, heavy drug use, or couples arguing. I do not have meat in the house, except fresh fish.
