We are looking for a house sitter in beautiful rural Ireland.
We are an active retired couple and travel back and forth to the continent on a regular basis. We would like to give the opportunity to a reliable non-smoking person/couple to enjoy Ireland countryside while taking care of our house and 2 dogs (and 12 hens) when we are away. We have flexible dates of traveling and can be accomodating, and are usually gone for at least 3 weeks at a time.
We live in a comfortable bungulow with a large garden front and rear, in a very rural quiet area, between Longford or Carrick-on-Shannon. A car will be essential.
Normal garden maintenance (watering flowers and mowing the lawn) will be necessary during spring and summer, but very minimal in winter times.
The dogs are 2 rescued dogs, terriers types, and love running and be taken for walks in nearby boglands. The hens need very little attention and reward you with good free-range eggs.
Garda vetting and character references is a must.
Looking forward to hearing from you, we will send photos when contact is established.
