    We are Lindsay (33) and Michael (34) and we are a married couple living in Ennis, Co. Clare. We have a 2 year old daughter new baby girl, Isla who is nearly four months old.

    I (Lindsay) am self employed as a wedding planner and occasionally, I style photoshoots for magazines. My husband Michael is a primary school teacher and a music teacher. We both play Irish music. I play the harp and piano and Michael plays the flute.

    Neither of us are originally from Ennis but have been living here for a number of years because of work. Ennis is a lovely town in the South West of Ireland, about 15 minutes from Shannon Airport, 30 minutes from Limerick City, an hour from Galway City and about 45 minutes to the Cliffs of Moher and The Burren, so there is a lot to do in the area. There is a very good bus service to Dublin City also.

    Our home is in a very quiet estate about 10 minutes walk into the town.

    We live in a town that is very rich in Irish culture and we ourselves are very interested in Irish music in particular. Ennis is also a great location for those interested in exploring the west of Ireland. the Cliffs of Moher, The Aran Islands, The Burren, Galway and Limerick.

    We are also very happy to help improve language and for those that are interested in learning about weddings and events, I work from home so there will be ample opportunity.

  • Arbeit


    May and June are very busy months in our house as it is my busiest time of year and my husband is still in school teaching so we are looking for a female volunteer to come and stay with us to help with our little girls, some light housework and some cooking.

    Being a new mother to Isla, I do not want to spend time away from my daughter and would prefer to have someone living with us so that we can get to know them and they can get to know our daughters too instead of sending her to the childminders for a few weeks so young. I am also breastfeeding so I want to be able to continue that and put her down for some of her naps so it's help minding her in between this so that I can work and prepare for a busy season.

    This might involve some time away from our home (with us of course where accommodation will be looked after for you) in Dublin, Wickow and Limerick in the lead up to the events.

    In addition to above, some light housework might be required throughout the day, putting away the babies clothes, keeping the kitchen tidy etc.

    We are looking for help 5 days a week, about 5 hours a day for 5 weeks from May to July for sure but we are open to extending if our workawayer wants to explore Ireland some more or relax. Mike, my husband will finish for the summer at the end of June so it takes the pressure off a little bit. During this time, we would be happy to show you around and go on day trips. I can even give some harp lessons :)
