We are a Farm Based Family in Co. Sligo, about 16 miles west of Sligo Town. My Husband (John) farms beef and suckler cows as well as sheep. I (Rachel) am a self employed holistic therapist, I work away from the home two days a week, but also take clients at my treatment room at our house.
We have 4 children, 3 girls aged 5, 3 and 21 months and 1 boy born in November 2016
We are looking for a vibrant person to help with the lambing and calving season starting at the end of February to the end of April.
You have a separate cottage to stay in if you prefer your own space. The cottage has a wood burning stove and usual amenities like washing machine, gas cooker fridge and separate freezer and a TV, (there are only 7 TV channels available, internet can be used at our house or we can arrange a pay as you go connection for you in the cottage). There are two bedrooms, sitting room, kitchen/dining room, back kitchen and Bathroom. The cottage is nearly 100 years old.
As you can see from the picture of the house I have a small garden, so if you enjoy a bit of gardening help with that would be appreciated.
A good standard of English
We are approximatley 45 minutes from Knock International Airport. Our house is in a very beautiful setting overlooking the mountains of Ben Bulben and Knocknare surrounded by lush green pasture land. A main bus route between Sligo & Ballina towns is approx 1 mile away from the house. You may be interested to know that there are two seaweed bath-houses located 30 minutes from us, one in Enniscrone (it's been in continuous use since 1912 and a very authentic experience) while another located in Strandhill is a newer development. There is a small beach (Dunmoran Strand) about 2 miles away from us and world famous surfing in Easkey and Strandhill are within easy reach
We are looking for someone from September about 4-6 weeks intially but if you intend staying longer then that can be discussed.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Rachel & John
