Hi. I am a dairy farmer. I milk approximately 100 cows. I live with my wife and children near Killarney. We live just outside the town of Killarney ( ) in South west Ireland. Killarney is one of the busiest tourist towns in Ireland. There is loads to do locally and the volunteer can use our home as a base to explore the local area. We live in a beautiful area close to the lakes of Killarney. There are several mountains to climb , walking and running trails, nearby. Killarney is a town that is busy all year round. It has lots of restaurants and coffee shops. The volunteer will have free use of a bike to explore the local area.
Depending on the persons experience or confidence helping on a farm they can help feed the calves, help milk the cows, do a bit of general maintenance, etc. We are very flexible and easy going so the work will very much depend on the person and their capabilities. The work is mostly outdoors and I will be around to give guidance or answer questions.
If you don't fancy helping on the farm you can give us a hand indoors with the kids / house work.
The accommodation is a room in our house with a double bed. There is a TV with Netflix in the room and internet access 24/7. There is a bathroom next door with a shower etc. There is always plenty food in the fridge and presses and we would expect that you would make your selves at home and be part of the family while you stay.
We are a typical Irish family. This is an opportunity to experience life in Ireland with an Irish farming family. You will gain experience of farming and animal welfare. You will have a greater understanding of our culture and lifestyle. If you want to improve your English language skills then we are very talkative! There is an English language school close to out house.
