    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I live on a lovely site 3 miles from a beautiful city, historical Kilkenny. I have willow growing and also trying to build an eco toilet, so we could learn together. Kilkenny has great social life and I can give lifts when ever needed. Also walking and a bicycle is provided to reach the town. I am also a tutor so if you need English class, that's no problem.

    I would love to hear from someone who loves working outdoors. I have let my garden'go' in past 2 years and weeds have taken over, so I need help with that. I also want to fence in my field which I need a strong hand to help with this. Maybe bit of painting , but lite work. I also have a Willow ditch that has gone wild and needs sorting. I am hoping to dig out an outdoor composte toilet and need help with this. Someone who doesnt mind Irish summers also- although it has been really hot for past few weeks which makes it a really nice experience.

  • Accommodation


    You will have your own living quarters and can cook for yourself or we can share the cooking, its up to you. I can do any shopping you require also. I am very easy going, once we get 4 -5 hours of handy work in. I have hosted many people from all over the world and love interacting with people from Ireland and abroad. (both are welcome). I also volunteer in other countries as I love to travel. This will be home away from home.

    What else ...

    There are so many things to do in Kilkenny, if you google it. And as I said, I live in a beautiful place outside the city. I have a dog and a cat. Smoking allowed outside. I need someone for 5 to 7 days ASAP if possible. I can collect from the train or bus from Kilkenny. If you want to apply, them we can arrange a phone call or skype , just to say hello.
