About this assignment

This is country living in rural Wicklow. A great staycation option. Perfect for a single person who wants to get away from hustle and bustle, a couple who would like alone time or a small family who want to experience a new lifestyle.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

We have two lovely easygoing cats who just need to be fed and cared for while we are away. We also grow our own vegetables in a polytunnel and plants and garden that would need maintenance.

What are the good features of the property and location

Its located near Glendalough and the Wicklow Way. Great for hiking! Perfect house for a bit of peace and quiet. We have a fabulous view over the countryside.

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

House sitter would need a car or be able to drive. House located 10 mins from Tullow town and 20mins from M9 motorway.

A lovely quiet spot

This beautiful little cottage has everything you would need. Set in the country with a view that goes on forever but close enough to several towns and villages to make shopping and sightseeing easy. The two cats are no problem either and spent most of their time wandering about the property. There's a riding lawnmower so I keeping the grass in shape was easy and I enjoyed the watering and gardening. We had a car and wandered all over Ireland and visited churches both intact and in ruins, checked out castles and generally had a grand time. Ireland is a great place to visit. Our hosts were a delight and made us feel welcome and at home within minutes of our arrival. The house has everything you would need and everything (washer, dryer, stove, frig etc) worked perfectly. It the kind of place that makes house sitting a real pleasure..
