  • Description


    We are a family of 6, Gerry Brenda and our 4 cgrown up children, Jen, Tadhg, Alannah, and Caoimhe. Last but not least is our family dog Luna, whom we all love to pieces!
    We live in a village, 4km from the town of Naas and of equal distance to Blessington, Co. Wicklow known as the Garden of Ireland. just 30 minutes from the buzz of Dublin, plenty of public transport nearby and at least one car goes into Dublin daily..
    Great country walks outside our gate and the local football pitch is just a few minutes walk from the house.
    Luckily we have plenty of room in the house for a guest and there is always a welcome for family and friends. We are also handy for the airport for all !
    We need help with General maintenance in and outside the house and also the Garden.
    We are happy to host a person or persons, who are honest and can help on their own initiative.
