  • Description


    Welcome to the Family!

    We are a family of three, with Irish roots, who moved to Caherdaniel three years ago from inner city London and haven't looked back!

    Chris is retired after spending his working life in humanitarian work and I (Philomena) run a grant making charity from home and teach in a university. Our daughter, Aibhlinn ('Ave-leen') is six and is a lively, fun and kind girl who loves riding, rugby, dancing and being outdoors.

    We are learning how to run a small holding and to tend the land and various animals who have found their way to us. There's always lots to do and we are always open to new ideas and projects. We genuinely love this place and would like to share its richness with fellow travellers. We are interested in finding a couple or two friends to join us over the summer months.

    We are privileged to live in a spectacular spot on the planet - there is so much to learn here about the sea, nature, gardening, rural life and caring for kids and animals in a positive and creative way. We have travelled extensively ourselves - Chris spent a lifetime in international development - and so we are keen to meet like-minded others, who like us, care about people and the planet. Caherdaniel, our village is a lively spot in the summer with many tourists passing through and a thriving music, food and culture scene. There is always something going on!

    Our family live on a beautiful small holding overlooking the sea, with two donkeys, five chickens, two dogs (all rescues), 20,000 bees (!) and 6.5 acres to manage environmentally. We need help, especially over the summer when our six year daughter is off school, to entertain her, and help with animal care, gardening and eco projects. Summer is always a busy time for us to manage, and an extra pair of hands (or two) would be much appreciated! We are looking for one or two people (couple or friends) over the age of 25 (for car insurance purposes) with a full clean driving licence to spend some time joining in our family life and helping out with summer projects we have planned.

  • Hébergement


    We have a large farmhouse with two spare double bedrooms, which share an ensuite bathroom. There is plenty of living space in a comfortable setting, and a 'tiny house' in the grounds if you need some 'alone' space too. We generally eat together in the evenings, though the fridge and pantry are well stocked if you'd sooner cook for yourself.

    We are a ten minute walk to the famed beaches of Derrynane (voted 4th best beach in the whole of Ireland) where there is good surfing, swimming and water sports all happening, and the national park and gardens of Derrynane House, home of the famous 19th Century Irish 'liberator' Daniel O'Connell. The area is rich in history, natural beauty and archaeological sites and the local village of Caherdaniel has a lively pub, with other pubs and restaurants close by. There is great hiking in the mountains around you, the walking route, 'the Kerry way' passes our doorstep, and you would have access to a bike and our car for travel in your time off. Chris might even let you drive his boat if you ask nicely! The county town of Killarney is 75 minutes away, Cork city a 2.5 hr drive and we are on the famous ring of Kerry which demands a scenic drive around the 179km of wild atlantic way. This place suits anyone who loves the great outdoors!
