We have a new snail farm in the sunny South East of Ireland close to the curracloe beach (10 km) (this is where saving private Ryan was filmed) and in Wexford we receive the most days of sunshine than any of the other counties. We have a 3 ha farm with a few lambs (Barney, Desiree, Emily, Bubbles, Wilma and Betty), 2 cats (snowy and Momma) and 1.5 million snails and I'm not going put down their names. Martin and I we're a gay married couple in a 5 bed house willing to share our house in return for some help on the farm. Martin works Dublin and commute everyday and I'm the the daddy looking after all the animals. I speak English, Afrikaans and a bit of Dutch and learning Italian.

This will be perfect for a couple wanting to improve their English and use this as a cultural exchange or even someone thats travelling our beautiful island of Ireland. We have a Train station and bus stop that operate to Dublin hourly where you can connect to other town and city. I cook every evening a meal with meat usually and for lunch usually a sandwich or quick pasta and for breakfast you help yourself to cereal, porridge or so. The room available is a big king size bed in a large room with an en-suite bathroom with a shower, basin and toilet(If you feel like a bath there is one upstairs) We have WiFi, a android box with lots of TV shows and you'll have your own small TV in the room with a ROKU box to watch your own content THis is only for short periods up to 3 months. It is available from now till the 16th of July and then again from 25th of July till end September when the snail harvesting finished. (You do not want to be in Ireland in the winter anyways).The hours of help I require is 4 days a week for 6 hours.
