    Description

    We have a straw bale eco house in beautiful countryside of Wicklow, a large friendly family needing some help with work in and out of house and garden. We live beside Brittas Bay beach which is a beautiful sandy beach and good surfing spot. The mountains are nearby too for hiking and Wicklow, known as the garden of Ireland has many enchanting walks and hikes.
    Our home is a self build straw bale house and we work away in our garden and have a swimming pond and grow our own organic vegetables. We enjoy being outside and being busy on creative projects in the garden. I'd really like to build a cool fort/treehouse for the children for example. I have lots of ideas and projects but not enough time to do them as we have a family of 8 children, from 5 to 17. So its a busy but fun household.

    We have a large friendly and fun family. We live in a beautiful part of Wicklow, near enough to Dublin. We have horses and a dog and cats. We live very close to a beautiful beach. We enjoy outdoor living, we would be helpful to those wanting to improve their english.
    I work as an artist and paint in my studio which is very nearby and I would welcome anyone who might like to use it. My husband is doing a PhD in philosophy but also designs garde s and eco builds. We are both passionate about healthy living and a sustainable and happy lifestyle.

    I would like to get some help painting and gardening at our eco house. We have lots of little jobs that need doing. I'd also like help with general house keeping and perhaps some cooking.

    What else ...

    For time off we would be happy to help get to buses and trains to visit Dublin, local town of Wicklow, bicycles available for local exploring, visiting beach. Horses available for those who can ride.
    We are a large family and would be very respectful of our guests and we would expect their respect towards us. We are not big party people and wouldn't want late night party people to apply! Our children range from 5 to 17 and therefore only people who enjoy the company of children should consider staying with us.
    We enjoy eating, walking, being outside. I have a studio for painting etc for anyone interested in art.
