☆☆☆ In 2022, we are looking to host people for one or two weeks at the most. We are hoping this will appeal to people taking some time away from their jobs/working life to come and enjoy working alonside us and enjoy being in the countryside. ☆☆☆
☆☆☆ Our projects for 2022 involve working on our front garden, back garden and daily chores in our allottment. It involves alot of digging and wheelbarrow work. All this work will be done alongside us. No experience necessary just enthusiasm and willingness to help. This work does involve manual labour, if you have a back problem/condition, this project will not suit you. ☆☆☆
Are you looking to stay in a beautiful quiet rural location in Ireland?
We are located close the scenic Nire Valley, West Waterford. We own a cottage and small holding on an acre of land in the middle of the family farm.
We are looking for individuals to help alongside us who have reasonable English, who are easy going, friendly and relaxed that will fit in to our little family. We are Mary, Eddy, & Pip and Daisy.
Pip is a 5 year old Yorkshire Terrier Cross, Daisy is a Jack Russell is aged 1. Both are a very important part of our family. Pip and Daisy live in our family home so you need to like dogs if you choose to come here and also have no allergies to animals.
We have two outdoor cats, free range chickens, geese and we also keep Bee's. Our gander Noel and his lady friend Demelza are excellent lawn mowers. Mudgy & Marley are our cats. They are stray cats who adopted us as their parents. They love a tickle as you walk past.
We keep bee's very near our house, if you are allergic to bee's then we are not the host for you.
If you do smoke, we would ask that you smoke outside. If you like to cook, we would welcome anything you would like to contribute to the family. We keep the pantry well stocked.
Before you arrive we will contact you about food you like to eat so we can have food you like in our pantry when you arrive. Please be honest when first contacting us to come and stay about your dietary requirements, such as being vegetarian, especially if you require soya products, gluten free or vegen products (Our vegetables are not grown in the vegan style, we use animal manure in our growing beds). Telling us when you arrive is too late as we do not have soya/gluten free or vegen products in our pantry and the local town/supermarket that stocks such products is 10 miles away.
A bit about me, Mary. I am an animal lover who likes to run and walk, you are welcome to join me. I love pottering around with different jobs on our property. I really enjoy tending to our vegetables and flowers that we grow. I love baking bread, cakes, scones and savoury dishes. If you would like to try some traditional Irish food I'm very happy to bake and cook those meals for you to try. I love to camp in the summer in the mountains and by the sea, you are welcome to join me.
A bit about Eddy. Eddy loves rugby & football. He will turn his hand to anything. Eddy always has some project or two on the go. Eddy is fantastic at DIY, building & upcycling. He is great at teaching people who wish to learn these kind of skills. Eddy makes his own homebrew ALES which we to consume here at home. Every summer Eddy likes to go sea fishing from local Piers, we have spare rods for anyone wishing to join us.
Pip and Daisy are very energetic. Pip goes running two or three times a week and walks with Daisy every day. They will demand tickles and belly rubs on a daily basis.
We love meeting people from other countries and cultures. We love sharing our culture with people and learning new things from our Workawayers about their countries, traditions and lives.

We also need help with fencing, diy projects, gardening, composting, painting outside on dry days & inside the house on wet days and looking after our animals. Alot of the work does involve manual labour, if you have a back problem/condition, much of this work will not suit you.
