Welcome workawayers and adventurers! Dreaming of experiencing life in our beautiful Irish countryside? Come stay with us and help with all sorts of summer projects. We will give you a warm welcome to our large country home and farm that we share with our dog, 2 ponies and 6 chickens. The weather is getting better after a long winter and we have a busy summer planned. Our house and garden are lovely but we need allot of help with up keep and maintenance especially during the summer. So we are looking for painters, gardeners, carpenters and handy all rounders for all sorts of projects that we have planned. If you like to cook family meals that would be a huge bonus. You can stay for as long as you like over June, July and August and we will provide a comfortable room, own bathroom and wifi, all meals and plenty of free time to explore the local area.
