  • Description


    Hi I am Chris. I live in an old Victorian Country House set on a 1 acre garden at the foot of the Slieve Bloom Mountains which has many lovely walking trails and mountain bike trails. I play traditional Irish music on the fiddle, enjoy walking when I get the chance photography and gardening. I need help in the garden, maintenance around the house and the usual house hold chores.
    I will only host 2 people who are travelling together or people who will share with another person. Must be fully vaccinated against Covid 19

    I bought this house 30 years ago and have spent my life improving it. I have a large garden which needs continual maintenance such as hedge trimming, weeding, watering window boxes landscaping and improving it.

    I run a part time bed and breakfast which is usually only busy at weekends in the summertime. I have a local worker employed for this and will not need any help in preparing rooms. It is closed from mid October to the end of March. Since Covid 19 the bed and breakfast is very quiet and I have reduced the number of guest rooms to 3.

    Help is usually 5 hours per day 5 days per week. Times by arrangement. In return I provide all your meals, accommodation and free unlimited wifi.

    I can only accommodate 2 people who will share a bedroom.

    Mountain bikes are available to use when they are not required by guests.

    When you arrive I can pick you up from the bus in Birr. Look up kearnstransport for cheapest bus fares to Birr. Also look up Local link who provide some public transport by bus to Kinnitty
