We built our own house on 10 hectares of what they call here : 'rough grazing land'. Up to 15 years ago, cows grazed it, but since then, only our 2 horses have roamed the grounds. We maintain an orchard and a garden (2 polytunnels) but much of the land has been steadily turning into forrest (birch, willow, holly, ashes, mountainashes and hawthorns mainly). We would like some help installing fences and dealing with the vast amounts of woodclearing. We would like to open some of the old fields, clear bits of the new woodland, built 2 new sheds and shelters and finish our roundhouse/garden shed, which could be easily turned into a cozy place for visitors to stay, provided it gets a bit of an upgrade. We have an en-suite room in the house to stay or plenty of space for a tent in the summer if you like. We share our place with our 3 children, 2 dogs, chickens and 2 horses. In the summer, we work long, flexible hours. There is no routine as such, mealtimes can vary greatly, depending on what our household members are doing on the day. This area is a place of outstanding beauty, with thousands of tourist passing through in the summer. We live at walking distance from the pituresque village of Sneem, on the Ring of Kerry, close to Killarney National Park. We are originelly from the Flanders in Belgium.
