I am looking for either a couple or a single person to give me some help in the garden for 2 to 3 weeks. The main work is cutting back hedges and general tidying up of the garden.
ABOUT HERE
The house is a modern house built to Passive House standard in the countryside with a large garden landscaped, designed and maintained by me. The garden includes areas of Native Irish planting as well as more traditional country garden.
I need some help with the maintenance of the garden and offer food and accommodation in exchange for 30 hours work per week.
It is not necessary to have any previous experience of gardening in order to work for me. The work consists of weeding, pruning and general gardening tasks.
I would like helpxers to come for 2 to 3 weeks at any time of year.
The accommodation I offer is a comfortable double room in the house with use of WiFi and my helpxers live as part of the family.

Because of the changeable weather in Ireland I am flexible as to the hours and will agree with my helpxers times that suit us both! I expect my helpxers to be flexible too.

**************************************** IMPORTANT! ****************************************
If you are from outside the European Union you will need a Temporary Work Visa which must be applied for before you travel to Ireland. We do not have "Visa on Arrival" like some countries. I have had two occasions where Helpers arrived at the airport without the necessary documents and were not allowed to enter the country.
