Our farm is situated close to a town called Templemore, in County Tipperary, in the heart of the Golden Vale; an area of rolling pastureland in the civil province of Munster, in southern Ireland. Close to our farm lies the famous Devilís Bit mountain. According to local legend, the mountain got its name because the devil took a bite out of it, leaving a small gap in the mountain between one outcrop of rock (known as the Rock) and another small plateau. The bite the devil allegedly took made this gap and the legend suggests that the devil broke his teeth taking this bite and spat the Rock of Cashel to where it now stands. We are also situated in close proximity to a range of popular tourist attractions like Holycross Abbey, The Galtee Mountains, Cahir Castle, Mitchelstown Calves and The Glen of Aherlow, to name just a few.

On the farm, we have many horses which we exercise daily. We also host a number of suckler cows, sheep and dogs on our farm.

Daily duties include feeding the horses, walk outs, cleaning stables, bedding with fresh straw, paper and/ or wood shavings as required and ensuring that the horses are healthy.

Feeding and caring for the livestock including sheep and cows are other important tasks on the farm especially during the winter months and in the lead up to calving and lambing seasons in the spring.
Once calved, our cows and calves enjoy access to pasture, until the calves become big enough to be weaned from their mothers in the late autumn months.
Great care is also required for the ewes and their new born lambs, to ensure they are healthy and well fed during the harsh winter months.

Accommodation and access to a bathroom is available for 2 guests. All meals will be included, if desired.

We are looking for someone to help out on the farm and also to help with general household chores.

On your time off, you can avail of local tennis club, golf club, mountain trails/trekking, horse riding or maybe just taking time to explore the local scenery.

Airport, bus or train pickup to Shannon or Dublin May be arranged.

We look forward to hearing from you!
