    Description

    Hello Workawayers, thank you for visiting my host profile, we are located in the midlands of IRELAND, just outside the towns of Kinnegad (2Km,) and Mullingar (20km) in Co. Westmeath.

    We are 40 mins from Dublin city by car and 50 mins from Dublin Airport. 1.5hrs from Galway & 1.5hrs Sligo. There is a very good bus service serving the the town of Kinnegad from all areas of the country.

    I have a large country house on 0.5 hectacres of landscaped gardens & vegetable gardens ( IT IS NOT A FARM, WE DO NOT KEEP ANIMALS). I am growing our own vegetables and some fruits which we are expanding. I want to establish a few bee hives for own honey and I want to establish a chicken run for own eggs. I need help with maintaining the house inside & outside, the gardens & grounds, the hedges and vegetable areas throughout the year.
    =============================================================================================
    PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU ARE FROM OUTSIDE EUROPE YOU WILL NEED A WORK PERMIT VISA TO COME TO IRELAND AS A WORKAWAYER.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    IDEALLY I'M LOOKING FOR HELPERS WHO WISH TO STAY A MINIMUM OF 1 MONTH BUT PREFER UP TO 3 - 6 MONTHS.

    I'M LOOKING FOR HELPERS from now through all 2021. Please have a face picture on your profile.

    I am interested in hosting ALL nationalities but especially European citizens like Spanish, Italian, German, Czech & French etc. Please note we cannot accommodate couples.

    I CAN HOST SINGLE HELPERS WITH SKILLS AND INTEREST IN FITNESS, WELLBEING and HEALTHY LIFESTYLES and CATERING Skills as we like to cook and eat healthy. We have a number of bicycles here and like to go for long bike rides, do some running & walks around the area. We also have a small gym & boxing training area. I also have Hi-speed internet access and a Home Cinema Facility for films and movies and sometimes we play a bit of CHESS.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Occasionally there are other jobs & projects to offer prospective helpers, away from the house and gardens,
    SOMETIMES THIS CAN BE PAID WORK FOR EXTRA HOURS!

    I currently have a major project, converting a field area into extending the lawns and fruit and vegetables area.
    Also need to erect a large polytunnel in this field. Want to build a Pergola, Gazebo and Decking area in the gardens. Need to do some re-modelling inside in the house also. So, we have lots of tasks and projects to progress.

    Before Covid 19 I was a freelance 'Private Tour Chauffeur Driver/Guide' around Ireland with American Families and Groups.
    Today I am a sales manager and mainly run a small medical devices company and provide Health and Wellbeing products and Therapies to our customers.

    I also have rooms which I rent on a medium-term basis to local workers. If I am away with work sometimes you will be required to do house sitting for a few days and keep everything maintained inside and outside.

    2021 will be my 7th year hosting helpers and it is going very well, we have hosted over 100 helpers to date. We have had some wonderful volunteers and great experiences with them. I'm looking forward to hosting again throughout 2021.


    Hoping to hear from you.

    Kevin -Kinnegad - Ireland.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    I am very flexible here and feel it is important that Helpers travel and experience the culture of Ireland and all its scenery and beauty. I always encourage helpers to take some days away from here, to travel and visit as many places, attractions and areas of Ireland as possible. I can advise on all the locations around Ireland from my tour guiding knowledge.

    Aide

    I can provide accommodation, food & board with some transport etc. to suitable helpers who can help with the house, gardens and projects. We are flexible but you will usually do an average of 5 hours daily for 5 days per week (10am to 4pm with lunch break). Ideally , individual helpers with experience in housekeeping, gardening, landscaping, DIY/Handyman and building projects are most suited here.

  • Langues parlées

    English: Courant
    Irish: Courant

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    Ensuite rooms, usually sharing with another helper. Occasionally there are more than 2 helpers here, at most there were 5 here at the same time.

    I will encourage you to make yourself at home here and cook with everyone to experience your foods and customs etc. I want you to especially enjoy your experience here and improve your 'English' language as much as possible while here.The main reason helpers come to Ireland on workaway programs is to improve their english language. Therefore I prefer and always try to have single helpers from different countries where the only common language here is English, as much as possible. That way you are guaranteed to improve your english!! For this reason I tend not to accept couples.

    We are also very open minded and welcome ALL races, religions, cultures, characters and orientations here. The world is a far better place with a rich diversity.
