We are currently looking for someone to help outside in all weather's. We need fire wood chopped and land cleared, hedges cut and general gardening work. It would be great if you had some experience already. You must enjoy physical tasks. Thank you.
Non-smoking family home, (including e-cigs) We have house pets and a large garden. We live in a rural part of Co Cork and lead a very simple life. We are trying to develop a veg and fruit garden to be self-sufficient. There is no nightlife here only nature...
We happy to take you to and from the bus route. our internet access is very limited.
I am a qualified teacher and we are happy to help you with learning the English language, don't worry if you are very rusty we don't mind!!
As the help is physical and outside you need to be comfortable bending, using simple garden tools, rake, spade, fork etc. We are happy to teach you but please this is not the place for you if physical outdoor tasks do not appeal to you. You WILL get dirty :)
We share the living day to day tasks like preparing meals, washing up after dinner and light housework this is not a hotel!!!! I work part time so u need to be happy to do tasks independently.

We would welcome some help painting and tidying outside, gardening, animal care, cooking...not all at once, lol. We have to look after the animals what ever the weather. Also the ground needs to be cleared and composted ready for next year so we work outside in the rain!!!
Many volunteers ask for an idea of the expected hours per day, so here is a general idea. Breakfast is at 8am and we start work at 8.30, tea break is at 10.30-11.00 then lunch is 1-2pm then work until 3pm. this is a flexible schedule, nothing is set in stone!! but hope its helpful :)
This host offers a language exchange
You will have the sole use of our guest room in the house.
Things to do: the best thing is to google the area, Bantry, West Cork. This is a rural place but we are walking distance to the bus stop which would take you to Cork city, there are no trains in West Cork.
Hiking, cycling, sea sports and walking are very popular activities in this area.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
small van could park in our field. there are no site amenities though just wild camping
We would consider this on a individual basis.
5 hours a day, 5 days a week
