    Description

    Hey guys,

    We are a young family living in beautiful Clonakilty, West Cork.

    Lisa, Shane, 2 year old Sadie, 5 month twins Scott & Max, our two dogs Nova & Dudley, and cat Boomer.

    As you can imagine, we have a very busy house at the moment. We are located about 5 km outside of the town in a rural setting which is ideal for long walks, and very peaceful. We are also lucky to have some stunning beaches a short drive away which we love to explore with our dogs.

    Shane works locally in the town and I am at home with the rest of the family.

    We live in an old renovated farmhouse a short drive from Clonakilty, which has recently been named best town in the UK and Ireland, and is a prominent area in the popular West Cork region. Clonakilty is a vibrant town with good restaurants, pubs, nightlife, shops and a renowned music scene. The area is well known for food, which suits us as we love to experiment with new ideas - vegan dishes being the latest one to add to the list.

    We are looking for someone to help with light housework, cooking, and minding the kids from early January.

    Please get in touch with any questions.

    We live in a converted 200+ year old farmhouse on the outskirts of Clonakilty.

    The Workawayer will have their own private bedroom, with double bed and storage space.

    Food will be provided. We would like the Workawayer to join us with family meals, but the option will be there to eat separately also.

    West Cork is a favourite of travellers worldwide, with amazing scenery and history. Where we live is approximately 5 minutes from the house where Michael Collins was born. We are a short drive to areas like Kinsale and Skibbereen.

    Many Workaway volunteers visit the area and meet locally at scheduled events.

    Ideally we would like a volunteer who has experience with children, and is looking to be a part of the family during their time in Clonakilty. We feel it is important to explore the local area, and sample the famous cuisine.

    Also only a short 40 min drive to Cork city - European capital of culture 2005 where volunteers could visit the famous English Market, or Cork city Gaol.

    Although we are located approximately 5 km from town, we are pretty active and have plans daily. Lifts to Clonakilty, Cork, Skibbereen are not a problem.
