    Description

    Hi! We are Matthew and Eliza and we are an Irish couple living on a farm in a beautiful rural setting about 30 minutes south of Limerick city and 5 km from the nearest village. Both Matthew and I in the past have lived and worked in New York and France and continue to travel when we can.

    We live on a working farm of 120 acres approx. Most of the farm is rented out to a neighbouring farmer who keeps cattle here. We keep our two horses on some of the land. Around the house there is a vegetable garden and lots of poultry. Also two dogs and two cats.

    We also have two woods of approximately 12 acres each, one was newly planted, the other had young trees planted through it. There is a two acre walled garden with apple trees in it. There are also a number of old farm buildings. Please note we are not a business.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You will visit and explore a beautiful rural and untouristy part of Ireland that is off the beaten track. We live near Lough Gur, a beautiful lake, and also very close to the Grange stone circle which is the largest in Ireland.

    You can learn how to grow and look after vegetables, hens, dogs and cats. You can improve your English (I spent 8 years hosting students in my home and teaching them English). As we all like to cook, you will learn new recipes (both Irish and other).

    We can provide lifts to the bus stop and also into Limerick. Lots of advice on interesting and beautiful parts of Ireland to see. I am a qualified English language teacher so will readily during the course of your time here provide tips about the language if desired.

    At the moment, we are looking for a couple or two friends to help in early October 2021 (Covid restrictions permitting) to help with the following:

    General maintenance including tidying and weeding the vegetable garden, making compost, lawn mowing; strimming along fence lines, weeding gravel area.

    Clearing out some old farm buildings.

    Clearing brush growth; removing ivy from trees; pruning

    Occasional house-sitting, including the feeding of dogs, cats and chickens and checking that horses are ok.

    In bad weather there is also painting inside and some light housework.

    Visit and go for walks around Lough Gur, a beautiful lake, Grange Stone Circle, Limerick city, the Cliffs of Moher (1.5 hours away). Watch a local hurling match…..visit Mary Howard's (a wonderful pub) in Bruff, our nearest small town. On Saturdays there is a wonderful market in Limerick.

    We are used to having people stay in our house as we have had helpers before as well as many language students. We are a relaxed family and welcome visitors as part of our family. I believe all who stay here leave with a very positive view of Ireland and this part of the country.
