Hello, we are a family of three (we have a 6 month old baby), living 3km outside the beautiful village of Glengarriff in South West Ireland. We are looking for help with general gardening and building work. We have lots of projects but the one we need immediate help with is the renovation of our boat shed. Building experience would be good but not necessary if you are willing to learn.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
We'd be happy to take you to the local pub for some ceoil agus craic (music and fun!) but if you are looking for the most peaceful place on earth, look no further. This is a great place work, relax, unwind and sleep!
We would like some help with renovating our boat shed, re-roofing, decking, replacing windows, insulation etc.
There is also lots of invasive rhododendron that we need to remove and general weeding and gardening duties.
Food and accommodation will be provided in return for 24 hours of help per week over 4 days.
We live in a traditional cottage that is approx. 200meters from the sea. You would have a bedroom with a double bed (so if there are two of you, you would be sharing) that is off the kitchen downstairs. You would share the main bathroom with us. Our home is unsophisticated but homely. We have central heating from a range/stove and washing machine, dishwasher and shower.
