    ***NO AVAILABILITY UNTIL May to August 2021***

    *️️*️️*️️*️️ We will take people for a maximum of one month only *️️*️️*️️*️️

    ☆☆We are renovating a caravan for 2021 as accommodation for Workawayers from May to August 2021. We will update our profile once this is completed and take workaway bookings☆☆

    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 4 year old Yorkshire Terrier Cross, Daisy is a Jack Russell who will be 1 at Christmas 2020. 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 three out door cats, free range chickens, geese and we also keep Bee's. Our gander Noel and his lady friend Demelza are excellent lawn mowers. Gingy and Mudgy & Marley are our cats. They are all 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. (Due to Covid, Eddy and I will provide meals or you can cook for yourself in the caravan)

    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 our vegetables and flowers that we grow. I love baking bread, cakes, scones and savoury dishes.

    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 from natural grains. 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 twice 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.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    People who come from a city/town back ground will find it different living with us in the country lifestyle. They will learn skills such as poultry husbandry, fencing & gardening (vegetables growing and flowers).

  • Aide


    If you love animals and want to get away from the hustle and bustle of life, then why not come and stay with us for a while.

    People will help approx 4 hours a day. Eddy's back is not great so we do things in a relaxed chilled out pace with plenty of tea breaks.

    If the weather is very hot we work early morning and then we work late in the afternoon avoiding the heat of the midday sun between 11am & 3-4pm.

    We need help with weeding, mowing, strimming, building jobs. We will need help with planting vegetables, looking after them as they grow & harvesting. 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.

    You would have your own double room in our home, meals and access to WIFI in exchange for your help. (Due to Covid, accommodation will be a caravan situated on our allottment below our house) (our Wi-Fi will not reach the caravan. We recommend getting a SIM card and topping up €20 credit wich give unlimited internet for 28 days. We can give you more information on this before you come)

    You do not need to have experience or certain skills, just enthusiasm and a willingness to turn your hand to anything.
