We don’t like to kennel our pets while away and we have had 19 wonderful sitters, a number of repeats, who left us 5 star reviews over the last number of years. (All but one came from Trusted House Sitters so not visible on Mind My House). We are looking for sitters with experience and love of animals.
Feed and exercise adorable and goofy 3 year old Golden Retriever and outdoor cat. Keep house and garden in reasonable state including cutting grass. It’s not a huge garden.
Comfortable large bungalow with all mod cons. High speed WI-FI. Secluded in countryside yet close to town. Close to sea and historical sites in West of Ireland along the Wild Atlantic Way.
It’s important to us that sitters are fit enough to walk Retriever (Digger) at least one hour a day. He is a gentle giant! We have lovely countryside walks directly from our house. You will need a car if you wish to tour. We don’t like to leave Digger alone more than 4 hours but he adores going on trips in car. (We would also love to find local sitters who could come for just a few days now and again. Not a necessity but would be helpful).
Colette and Brendan made us feel like family even before we arrived. They made new arrangements to be away during our scheduled dates to avoid canceling, despite a health scare just before we were due to arrive. Digger is truly, as they call him, “the best boy.” He’s a sweet, gentle, loving, funny, adolescent Goldie. They also have two outdoor cats, Tiger and Pandora, who despite their independence, love a cuddle and a brushing; purring happily to encourage their temporary humans. Their home is comfortable and well-appointed. The garden is full of gorgeous roses, and the local walks are delightful. It’s situated quite near Ennis town, in beautiful county Clare. We didn’t want for a thing. Communication was easy, open and very pleasant, from beginning to end. We wouldn’t hesitate to return to sit for them again.
