  • Description


    My name is Oliver. I live in a small farm house and horse yard in the middle of Ireland. Ongoing building project on the house and yard.
    We are surrounded by beautiful countryside. Also run an advertising/film production company from the property.
    Lots of wood to be cut, things to build still. Would like a motivated, positive person who is at peace in nature. Creative, artists, musicians very welcome. Film making is my passion.

    Happy to pay additional to hours if this is of interest/ within the skillset of anyone for work needing doing.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My business is running an advertising company and making short films so there is always a lot going on. It would be nice to have an alternative point of view and input.

    I think the main cultural exchange is seeing how we live here and engaging with what is going on - that will be different for every traveler. But horse life has a universality.

    There is a good canal network - we have kayaks- and beautiful lakes - if someone is into fishing.

    We have a small garden and grow some basics.

  • Help


    We have a small horse yard and property which is an ongoing project.

    There are two types of help required:

    1) General horse care - mucking out, feeding - General yard and land maintenance. So having real horse experience would be ideal.

    2) Sharing the running of the house, cooking cleaning, shopping etc.

    I am away with work a lot so would like to meet responsible and trustworthy people who would maintain the place if i am away for a couple of days.
