Hello HelpXers, thank you for visiting our host profile, we are located in the midlands of Ireland, just outside the town of Kinnegad (2Km) in Co. Westmeath.

We are 40 mins from Dublin city and 50 mins from Dublin Airport. We are 1.5hrs from Galway & 1.5hrs Sligo. We have a very good bus service serving the the town of Kinnegad from all areas of the country.

We own a country house on 3/4 acres of landscaped gardens with fruit & vegetable gardens (WE ARE NOT A FARM, WE DO NOT KEEP ANIMALS). We grow all our own vegetables and some fruits which we are expanding. We breed a few snails for our own use, we want to establish a few bee hives for our own honey and we want to establish a chicken run for our own eggs. We require help with maintaining the house inside & outside, the gardens & grounds, the hedges and vegetable areas throughout the year.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOLO/SINGLE/INDIVIDUAL HELPXERS TO COME & HELP DURING Winter '17 and Spring '18.
(Minimum of 1 Month, or 6 weeks, 2 Months ??? - we can be flexible to suit you, if you can suit our requirements)

Please have a FACE PICTURE on your profile. Guys usually suit us better due to work and room sharing requirements with other helpers.

WE ESPECIALLY NEED A CARPENTER OR SOMEONE GOOD AT WOODWORK AT THE MOMENT?
WE WOULD ALSO LIKE TO HOST SOMEONE WITH SKILLS IN PERSONAL FITNESS, TRAINING AND HEALTHY LIFESTYLES
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We occasionally have other jobs & projects to offer prospective helpers. e.g. we are currently creating a new vegetable area (see pictures).
We also have a major project, converting a field area into extending the lawns and fruit and vegetables area.
We also need to erect a large polytunnel. We want to build a Pergola, Gazebo and Decking area in the gardens. We need to do some re-modelling inside in the house also and restoring of an office and rooms outside. So, we have lots of work and projects to progress.

We can provide ensuite accommodation, food & board with some transport etc. to suitable solo/single helpXers who can help with our gardens and projects. We usually work an average of 5-6 hours daily for 4-5 days per week (10am to 4pm). Ideally , solo/single helpXers with experience in housekeeping, gardening, landscaping, DIY/Handyman and building projects are most suited to us.

We have 3 sons, who are all grown up now and mostly living away.

We are flexible and feel it is important that our HelpXers experience the culture of Ireland and all its beauty. We always encourage our helpXers to take a few days breaks away from us and travel while here and visit as many places and areas of Ireland as possible. We will also encourage you to make yourself at home here and cook with us to experience foods and customs etc. We want you to enjoy your experience and improve your 'English' language as much as possible while here with us too. We are also very open minded and accepting of all religions, cultures, characters, and orientations (Gai, Como Chicos) etc etc.

2017 is our 3rd year hosting with HelpX. To date we have had some wonderful helpXers and great experiences with them.We are looking forward to hosting many helpers during 2017.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Kevin & Angela Flynn
