I am German and living for over 14 years in Ireland. I am renting a modernly converted barn in the south of Ireland.
Myself, I am a single parent. My son is five years old. We have a dog Coco and a cat Garfield.
We love to be outdoors and we have mainly a vegetarian diet. Much of our food that we eat is also organic.
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
As a lone parent, I am mainly seeking a volunteer to help me sometimes babysitting in the evening for my child so I can go to a yoga class or go to a music event in town. I am also attending shiatsu workshops which happen at weekends (usually one weekend a month). Then, I will need someone that can be here in the house with Malvin and mind him during the weekend days.
I would love if a volunteer that will play with him. Languages, arts, crafts, music and more are all welcome. Sometimes help preparing meals would be great too.
The ideal volunteer would have experience with children and definitely should have an interest in kids.
There is no strict routine timewise but the volunteer should notice that I need someone to care for my child an occasional evening and weekend.
There is a double bed available in a private bedroom.
We live pretty rural in the countryside. There is no public transport and no shops here! The next town is Clonakilty which is about 10 minutes drive away by car. Some people hitch hike here which is handy to get around and meet locals.
Cork city is about 1 hour drive away and Killarney 1 hour. Both towns can be reached by bus from Clonakilty town centre.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
I have hosted a few volunteers and these were very nice experiences. I also have supervised, worked and lived with volunteers over the past years when we used to live on a big farm. In those times, we really enjoyed each other's company for example by learning cultural habits, cooking and watching a film together. Several times, I have taken volunteers sight seeing.
I hope to exchange that again and hope we find some people that will fit on with us for a little while.
Mainly babysitting in the evening or at weekends
