  • Description

    Description

    Over 22 years preferable

    House sitting also

    Help in any area of below list would be good.

    1. General assistance within our house as my health doesn't allow me get all completed.

    2. Gardening - general tidy, weeding etc.

    3 If interested in old furniture - antiques and restoring them, again it would be great to meet someone with these talents.

    4. Optional :Sewing machine skills, only required for repairs of small items of clothing.

    5. If knowledge on Digital Marketing/Social Media that would be of great help to me, as this is an area that I need to get better on and to get me familiar on how to use these platforms.

    Not all above required at any one time. If interested in any one area of above, this would be a great assistance,

    We are a family of four, my husband has a tillage farm, and this is eco- themed. We also have two holiday houses which are rented to tourists during the tourist season. Our local town of Kilkenny has a Castle and attracts lots of tourists and a good social town. We have two school attending boys, aged 12 & 14 years. Due to my health not being 100% at this time, some jobs can be a little challenging at times.

    We are both involved in tourism at a local level and hold annually a Heritage Week event during the month of August - Irish Music and Dance.

    On days off, we provide bicycles to travel around the local area, lovely villages of Paulstown, Gowran and Goresbridge, which has the River Barrow, nice for walks/cycle or activities during summer on the river. We will drive you to bus ( Gowran or Paulstown) which has connections to Waterford and Dublin (frequently troughout the day). We offer own room, wifi in house, shared bathroom, meals, bicycle use and transport to local buses. We frequently travel to Kilkenny, so a lift will be available or other local towns

    We aim to make your time with us as stress free and enjoy what Ireland has to offer, in return all we want is an extra pair of hands around the house/Garden. Please note it is the country side, so if any phobias/allergies to insects or pollens - be conscious of this.

    Only apply for position, if you feel you can adapt into our family life, engage in conversation, and enjoy our culture.

    We are an easy going but busy family so it's important that you would be able to jump straight in and be self motivated and be enthusiastic, we will teach you some new skills in our area of work, but we would like you to have some skills also.

    We have 2 cats & 1 small dog.
