Dairy and beef farm located in the lovely North Kerry, close to the coast. I run the farm by myself with occasional help from my dad. I currently milk 50 cows for local production and I have 40 dry cattle. With the upcoming calving season - the two main tasks during this time are feeding the calves and helping with calving cows. Prior experience in this area would be good but I am happy to teach you the ropes also. If there is anything you would rather not do, that is OK too. I hope that you are comfortable in this experience and that you have an opportunity to learn new skills. You will be staying with me and my dog in a 3 bed house beside the farm. Meals will be provided or if you wish to do your own cooking, that is OK too. The house has central heating and wifi.

About me: I am a 36 year old full time farmer and part time actor (in the local theater). Apart from drama, I go swimming in the local pool everyday and love learning from other peoples' experiences.

About the area: The nearest town, Ballybunion, by the coast has a wonderful beach for long walks and swimming. The town has nice restaurants, a first class golf course,and a leisure center complete with a pool and gym. Less than a 10 minute drive from the farm is the heritage town of Listowel, which has more lovely restaurants, pubs, a theater, cycling, fishing.
The surrounding countryside is also a wonder to explore.
