    We are a family of vets . We have a lot to do at home which we do ourselves but would love some help along side us with tasks such as maintaining a vegetable garden albeit very small, we have horses but they are out at grass most of the year but fed throughout and one is due to foal soon which is very exciting!

    We would welcome some help gardening and painting also but this would be done with us we would not give you tasks and leave you bewildered. We all get involved at home. All gardens are private to our home for personal use which having nothing to do with a nearby rental which is independently run. So the rental does not avail of the private gardens as our children are on this and we choose to keep it all personal based. We use all gardens and land throughout the year. The horses are kept at grass and these too are personal pets not utilised as a public commodity. They are young animals and not fit for riding so we cannot allow people to ride them. We basically feed and care for them in the young ages. We only have three and hopefully the boys can ride them when they are older.

    We have two young primary school children that are typical boys and love to get involved. We have hosted au pairs from Europe and continue to do so, and this has been a great way for the children to learn about other cultures. We learn about food and language and the way other cultures do things and vice verser. Hopefully with plenty of interaction you will have a good palate of the Irish culture and British culture .

    I have lived abroad in the West Indies for many years so have experienced other cultures, and this is something I would like us as a family to embrace more at home.

    We can provide a bicycle if you wish to explore. We go to a nearby river to paddle board in the summer which you can also take part in. We are a family that enjoys fishing locally and there are plenty of fishing spots with easy access to home. There are lovely forest walks near the river also. Starting time as soon as possible to avail of hopefully a beautiful summer.

    We have all year round visitors on site from the Uk and some from America over the summer depending on visit time. Plus we host fishermen from Europe over the summer to stay in a nearby cottage. This is a separate entity and not involved in workaway, it is managed independently. Message and I can send more pictures of what we do here. We would give you your own room which is newly furnished. If you like to fish we can provide equipment for some down time or take part. We like to cook what we catch as well.
