-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

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

This is large a country house on 3/4 acres of landscaped gardens with fruit and vegetable gardens (WE ARE NOT A FARM, DO NOT KEEP ANIMALS). We grow all own vegetables and some fruits which we are expanding. I want to establish a few bee hives for our own honey and I want to establish a chicken run for our own eggs. Require help with maintaining the house inside and outside, the gardens and grounds, the hedges and vegetable areas throughout the year.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WE ARE LOOKING FOR HELPXERS TO COME and HELP DURING all months of 2018. ALL European countries, USA, Canada and UK are welcome.

WE NEED HELPERS TO STAY A MINIMUM OF 1 MONTH UP TO 3-6 MONTHS.

Please have a FACE PICTURE on your profile and as much DETAILS ABOUT YOURSELF and your skills/experience to date as possible. Guys usually suit us better due to work type and room sharing requirements with other helpers.

PREFER TO HOST HELPERS WITH SKILLS IN PERSONAL FITNESS, TRAINING AND HEALTHY LIFESTYLES AND CATERING as we like to cook healthy and we do some cycling and walking around the area here. There is also a home cinema where we watch famous movies and documentaries with English subtitles to help in learning english. We also have hi-speed internet access.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We also have other jobs and projects to offer prospective helpers, sometimes away from the house and gardens. SOMETIMES THIS CAN BE PAID WORK FOR EXTRA HOURS.

Currently creating a new vegetable area (see pictures).
Also have a major project, converting a field area into extending the lawns and fruit and vegetables area.
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 and board with some transport etc. to suitable helpXers who can help with our gardens and projects. You will usually work an average of 5-6 hours daily for 4-5 days per week (10am to 4pm). Ideally, helpXers with experience in housekeeping, gardening, landscaping, catering, DIY/Handyman and building projects are most suited to here.

As a couple we are recently separated, Angela does not live here currently. We have 3 sons, who are all grown up now and mostly living away. Kevin is a National Tour Guide/Driver and is away at times. You may be required to house sit during these periods.

I am very flexible and feel it is important that HelpXers experience the culture of Ireland and all its beauty. I always encourage our helpXers to take a few days away from here to travel and visit as many places and areas of Ireland as possible. You will also be encouraged 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 too. We are also very open minded and accepting of all religions, cultures, characters, and orientations.

PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU ARE FROM OUTSIDE EUROPE YOU WILL NEED A VISA OR WORK PERMIT TO COME TO IRELAND AS A HELPXER..
PLEASE ENSURE YOU HAVE ALL THE CORRECT DOCUMENTATION BEFORE TRAVELLING.

Kevin Flynn
