!!! Join us NOW for the Christmas/NYE season! We are currently looking for your support until ca. 4th January 2014!!!

This is a unique Country House in County Cork within one mile of Skibbereen (www.skibbereen.ie). The garden is laid out in the form of a wild garden with flora indigenous to the region. The property has some really unique features not found anywhere else in Ireland including The Crater designed by James Turrell...see 'Irish Sky Garden and Crater'.

We would welcome more HelpXers although we are full in July.

house sitting, and helping out with daily chores around the house and support in the kitchen
Anyone who is outgoing and friendly with our guests, curious, willing to learn and creative

We are interested in both short & long term stays, ideally people experienced in hospitality work or gardening and ground maintenance.

With 200 acres of gardens, trails and lake, our other big focus is on the various outside projects. The 'Crater' has been rejuvenated, but there's still plenty to do.

We have a substantial Victorian walled garden where we have planted a kitchen garden and herbs. (Thanks Maiko!) It needs regular maintenance and TLC.

Skibbereen is on the main Bus route from Cork so is well served for travelling to Skibbereen. We are only one mile from town.

Have a look at the HelpX referrals or the blog one of the guys started for all future HelpXers on the Crater restoral!
