We live on a beef farm in the countryside. My husband and I have two young children & a dog (outdoor). We have recently renovated an old period house and are now just trying to put the finishing touches to it.

They call Offaly hidden Ireland, as its a little off the beaten tourist track. Its a very beautiful county with lots of Irish culture close to hand. You would get to see how real life is lived in Ireland, but also we are central to all the big cities so day trips are very easy. If you would like to learn about our culture, day to day lifestyle, also use your time off to visit the bigger town and cities then our location and family should suit your needs.
We need help with general maintenance such as cleaning, painting, gardening, handy help.

Our region/ county is Offaly which has plenty to see and do such as the Georgian town of Birr, which is 5 km away, lough boora parklands, local whiskey distilleries, the river Shannon dotted with pretty towns, villages and the famous monastic settlement of Clonmacnoise. We live just outside a village called Kinnitty located at the foot of the Slieve Bloom mountains, which has great walking & cycling trails Our location is also very central to major cities like Dublin, Galway or Kilkenny all within 2 hrs travel distance with bus and railway services nearby. The local village has great pubs and a Castle with traditional Irish music sessions on regularly.
