  • Description


    We: Stefanie (artist and filmmaker), Brendan (scientist and pianist) and Einstein (small fluffy white dog) have only recently moved into a Georgian house in Cork, Ireland. While the heavy renovation work on the house is done, we still need to do painting jobs and gardening and would love to have some help with this as well as some dog walking. The house is 20 walking minutes away from the train station and from the bus station and 25 walking minutes from the city centre. You can also have the loan of a bicycle to explore Cork and its surrounding area. We cook and eat vegetarian/vegan organic food, are passionate about art and science and practice bio-energy meditation.
