We are a family of 4 living near Clonakilty in the south west of Ireland. We have had many people from countries all over the world staying with us...we love to travel but now with young kids and work life, it's harder to see as much of the world! Workaway is such a great site and we have had some fantastic travellers stay with us!!Our kids are 9 yrs and almost 11 years old and both in primary school. We are looking for a happy, independant, flexible person to come and stay with us. We are trying to lay out our garden at present so lots of odd jobs in this area and any expertise here would be appreciated! We have finally started planting some flowers and small trees so the kids are helping with the watering etc! Our needs are flexible and range from general help around the house, some childminding 1 or 2 afternoons a week when I'm working, dog-walking or laying out the rest of our garden if you're interested! Les has a mini digger and always welcomes someone willing to work outside too! We love trying new foods and if you like to cook you are welcome to experiment in our kitchen! We eat a varied diet, have a love of fresh fish from our coasts, we try to eat good quality meat and free range chickens, sometimes eat vegetarian as I'm an 'ex-veggie (!!) and love wholesome food:}The area is beautiful and there's plenty of cultural things to do in Clonakilty, a town with some great Irish music, a wonderful community spirit and a town you'll grow to love! Oh...and this November,Clonakilty has won the Greatest town UK award 2016😊😊

We have two dogs who love walks! And 2 rabbits..baby rabbits being born every so often..and 4 hens!!:) So any help here is very welcome! Generally Rían looks after the hens, and the rabbits are Miya's babies!
I work Monday - Thursday mornings plus Wesnesday afternoon also, as a nurse, in a GP practice 15 minutes drive from our home. We all help out with housework but it's hard to keep on top of it all sometimes! An extra pair of hands for a few hours a week is so helpful and we enjoy showing you around in return. My husband does a lot of machine work and has his own diggers/hedge-cutter/zero-grazer etc..Springtime and September /October are busy months for him so I like having company around:)
