    A family run historic house and estate with forestry farm and fishery. Our house a historic building on the banks of the beautiful river Boyne overlooking the megalithic sites of Newgrange and Knowth which are world heritage sites 40 mins from Dublin and in the heart of a beautiful landscape ,we have mature trees and a garden that needs a lot of help with ,I say,family run but its actually just me and my amazing partner .We also have some very friendly pets a cat lots of hens and some geese , peacocks ducks and 2 donkeys
    Unless you have lived in an old house you cant imagine the maintenance involved in keeping it all going ,we have had some really lovely volunteers last summer ,we have had barbecues ,and picnics on the river we have learnt from each other different dishes ,and have had many a good evening .
    I think it great to interact with people from other backgrounds and cultures ,I have travelled a lot and have lived for many years in east Africa and India ,My son and his young family live very nearby and there are another 2 young families who live on the estate ,
    We need willing able volunteers to help in the forestry in the organic vegetable garden and some maintenance tasks painting and carpentry would be useful skills to have .
    Marketing skills on rainy days would also be great .
    We provide you with your own accommodation in a very clean and comfortable mobile home with kitchen so when we are not having a BBQ or doing Pizza s in the forest you can cook for yourselves .We will go to Lidl or Aldi once a week with you and pay for your shopping.
    Obviously we can not find one person to fill in all categories ,so if anyone has experience in any of the areas and would like to come here ,that would be just great .
    thank you !
    look forward to hearing from you !
    Please be sure you can come and do not cancel once accepted .
