  • Description


    We live in a rural area near the river Shannon. We have a farm and I have a small bread making business. But I have little time for gardening and general tidying up. My husband and I live on the farm and our adult son lives close by. We work hard but try to enjoy a little down time as well.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a rural area close to a small town so there isn't a lot of activity in the area. We are close to the Shannon river. If anyone needs to practise their English there will be lots of opportunity but they would have to have a basic vocabulary. They would have the experience of living with an Irish family and enjoying our way of life

  • Help


    Painting as well as those listed above. We are farming so there are lots of different Jobs to be done. There is lots of gardening to be done , window cleaning. Because there is lot of work going on there is little time left for doing the least important tasks

  • Languages spoken

    English: Fluent

  • Accommodation


    Double room it's a big house with 5 bedrooms so lots of space. Private sitting room if required with TV included. Towels etc provided

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in a rural area as already stated so there is not a huge amount of sporting facilities in the area. The river is two km away. The mountains .. Walking are 20 km away. There is public transportation available but times are limited but it would rarely be a problem to drop people to bus or train.

    I have no previous experience with volunteers. We live a busy type of life. I have a small bread making business . My husband is a dairy farmer and works with one of our sons. We would expect the volunteers to just help out where needed and where they are willing to help.
    We would like to get someone as soon as possible.
