Hi, ++UPDATE++ we're ok for house-sitters at the moment.
Trustworthy HOUSE & ANIMAL-SITTERS often welcome!....Let me know your dates and I might even plan a trip-away around them.
We usually dont ask house-sitters to work 'hours' as well as house/animal-sit, (although any help is of course ALWAYS appreciated :) Would need you to to arrive a few days before we leave & take you food shopping before we go and also if needed, ask friends if they can offer to take you shopping once a week.

Our family live in a small, traditional Irish cottage, in a country location, with 5cats, 2dogs, a horse, and a jenet. We are located a 30 min drive to limerick city and to Ennis, and are 45 min drive from Shannon airport.

Buses and public transport are unfortunately (almost) non-existent here in East Clare but friends and neighbors are always on the move so hopefully no-one will ever feel stranded. We live two miles from nearest small village & pub.

We invite helpers to work for approx 4 hours per day, and for 4/5 days in 7. In return, we offer friendship, food and warm, basic, private accommodation. Flexibility is given and appreciated.

The kind of on-going outside jobs we need help with are fencing, stable work, gardening & painting.
If you dont want/like outside work, help with a spring-clean & housework is ALWAYS appreciated & anyone who likes to take turns cooking is also welcome (though not essential). We are a vegetarian household.

For many reasons we usually DONT accept people who need to confirm a place several months in advance - it works best for us to make arrangements for up to one month in advance. Even last minute sometimes works. Apologies if we are unable to answer your requests...We try to keep up, but you are still welcome to try..
