All the experience was great! Conor is very nice person, I enjoyed the work and talks with him, and his pleasant family. The comforts of the place was much more as I expect. The work is like the description, and the tasks aren't the same all the time so you don't get bored with them. There are beutifull places to visit closer. You can see all the green hills surrounding the place, some rivers with woods, or ride the bike to the top of the hills or the beach.
