I live in what originally was a working farm, situated 17kms south of Westport in County Mayo. The accompanying 30 acres of fields are home to my landlord's cattle during summer months. I occupy the farmhouse and have exclusive use of the large farmyard and many sizable outbuildings.

The assistance required is quite varied, but mainly help with growing vegetables, making planter boxes, grass cutting, collecting firewood and general maintenance.

I prefer the helper to be a single male, especially one with gardening or woodworking/building experience, but that is not essential.

I am a long-term (6 years) host on CouchSurf, and an Ambassador, so consider that qualification enough to be a reference.

I have two dogs and two cats. I am a smoker, and so is my girlfriend.

I offer full board and accommodation in exchange for a few hours work each day. I do not impose 'rules', but I do expect helpers to show initiative if they notice something that needs attention.

If you wish to learn more about Ireland in general and Mayo in particular, I recommend you look at my website

Contact me through provided channels if you consider what I am all about matches your desires as a helper.

Look forward to hearing from you.
