    Hi all, i'm George, I live alone in a old Georgian house and farm that I have been restoring in Co Longford ( midlands) It is a peaceful place with mature woods a grounds. I am about 10 minute walk from our village, 15 minute drive from Longford town and 1.5 hours from Dublin. I am an easy going guy who loves life and is quite busy with a small farm and a part time day job, I keep cattle and have two foster donkies. I also have a friendly German Shepherd young dog called Polly.

  • Help


    Looking for someone who will enjoy their stay where both myself and your self will benefit equally. Examples of tasks to be carried out are : blowing and clearing leaves,occasional light help with cattle, loading fire wood,fencing, mechanical help, painting, gardening, general house help, cooking and general maintenance. It is not essential to have experience in these tasks as I have no problem showing people how but know that you may bring other skills that will also be useful. Help will vary depending on the time of year and weather.
