    Beschreibung

    We are a family of 4, Lavinia (40, stay at home mum), Dave (39, works mon-sat) Misha age 4 (attends a local primary school) and Ewan age 3 (goes to an outdoor preschool); Poirot the cat and a dog that visits us a lot!

    Three of us are vegetarian (Dave eats meat but rarely cooks it at home).
    I am beginner level at yoga, sewing, running and Irish set dancing. I have an interest in herbs as medicine, permaculture and sustainable living. I have been a member of Couchsurfing for many years, as a host and as a surfer- staying with a local is the best way to get a feel for a country!
    Dave's interests are architecture, cars, construction methods, music- he plays a little bit of guitar, Netflix and talking!
    Misha loves arts and crafts, Ewan loves playing with toy cars. They both love building dens, splashing in muddy puddles, kicking a ball and stories.

    We live in a rural part of East Cork but just 5 miles from the nearest village and 8 miles from the beautiful historical seaside town of Youghal. There are regular buses from there to the cities of Cork and Waterford.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We would be delighted to help with teaching English, and some irish maybe! I can teach irish set dancing and bring our workawayer to a traditional ceili night and a drink in our small local pub. We can show you around our beautiful part of the world, we are close to the coast, the mountains and many historic buildings.

    Arbeit

    We would love help in the garden, grass cutting, strimming, weeding, digging and watering plants.
    Help also needed with painting, building an outdoor compost toilet and mud kitchen for the kids, cutting firewood.
    Possibly some help with babysitting and housework and if you have some tasty vegetarian recipes for us to try out that would be great!
    You need to be able to work alone or not mind children 'helping' on occasion!

    Your accommodation will be in a campervan parked in our garden away from the house (Wi-Fi is only in the house). It has a double bed accessed by a ladder, camping toilet which can be emptied in our waste tank, small fridge and 2 gas rings. However you have full use of our bathroom and kitchen/living room aswell.
    We usually wake slowly before 7am, breakfast at 8, lunch at 1 and have our dinner about 5.30pm. The children go to bed 7-7.30.

    We have a bike that you can borrow or can bring you to the nearest bus stop if you would like to travel further!
    There is lots to explore in Youghal, Lismore, Ardmore, or day trips to Cobh, Blarney Castle, Kinsale. The river Blackwater flows into the sea at Youghal and can be enjoyed by boat or kayak trips.
    The Greenway in Dungarvan Co Waterford is a great track for cycling or walking.
    If you tell me your interests, I can advise on other things to see and places to visit!
