  • Description

    Description

    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.

    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!

    Accommodation

    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.
