We: Stefanie (artist and filmmaker), Brendan (scientist and pianist) and Einstein (small fluffy white dog) have only recently moved into a Georgian house in Cork, Ireland. While the heavy renovation on the house is finished, we still need to do painting and gardening and would love to have some help with this as well as some dog walking. The house is 20 walking minutes away from the train station and from the bus station and 25 walking minutes from the city centre. We cook and eat vegetarian/vegan organic food, are passionate about art and science and practice bio-energy meditation.
Improve your English language skills, experience living in a period house and in an old part of the city, explore the cultural life of Cork, the second biggest city of Ireland, explore parts of East and West-Cork by train and bus.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Welcoming help with gardening, painting and decorating, dog walking. Some experience or skills in gardening and painting/decorating would be very welcome but not necessary.
The house has 4 storeys and we live on the first, second and third floor with the front room, kitchen and dining room being on the first floor, our bedroom, 2 bathrooms, a studio and a guest room being on the second floor and the workaway private bedroom, a study room and a spare bedroom being on the third floor. There is internet access throughout the house. The food is organic and vegan/vegatarian, breakfast could be muesli or porridge or bread, we usually have soup and bread for lunch and a cooked dinner.
We are happy to advise you on what you might like to visit and explore. There are sights like the Fota wild life park and Aboretum, the Blarney Castle and Cobh heritage museum that can be easily reached by public transport as well as the beaches and beautiful landscapes of West Cork and East Cork.
