Last Updated: July 3, 2013

We are Carly and Simon, and 13 year old Christie, living in a big, 100+ year old manor house over looking Bantry Bay, set on a large garden where we grow our own organic veg and raise chickens and ducks for meat and eggs.

We have two friendly dogs and five cats, a few goats, and a horse and a pony who sometimes come to keep the grass down, so animal lovers only please!

Helpers must be fairly strong and able for outdoor work, not afraid to get their hands dirty and be prepared to get wet - it rains here a lot! We need help with general maintenance and cleaning around the house both indoors and outdoors, some gardening, fencing and building/maintenance of chicken coops. What you will be doing each day will depend on weather conditions, season and other variables.

Helper will get his/her own room in the house, the rooms are heated by open fires as well as ofch. We will provide fresh, wholesome, home-cooked meals, as well as full use of all basic facilities (bath, shower, kitchen, washing machine, t.v. and internet) in exchange for 4-5 hours work per day. It's a very short walk to Bantry town center with shops, pubs, bus service etc. We will expect helper to be reasonably independent and self-motivated, and able to work alone on set tasks.

We are fully booked from 20th June through to end September 2013.
