Come for the summer and share your cultural expertise with us.
We are a warm and friendly family and have students stay with us all year round. You will speak english with us - I (wife/mother) am the only person in the family who speaks Spanish, we are happy to invite you on any family trips we may have. We like camping and we own a caravan. I am a researcher and lecturer in Criminology, my husband is a game developer, and our son is a keen console game player and swimmer. We live by the beach.

Galway has a lot of offer, it is a coastal city and near the Irish native speaking communities. There is loads of beaches and many colleges. During the summer there are lots of mini festivals in the city centre. I speak fluent Spanish, however, I am English and my husband is Irish. If you want to increase your English this is a perfect arrangement as I do not know anyone else who speaks Spanish other than myself. We are very knowledgeable in the local and Irish culture and happy to help and support any travel ventures. Galway is an excellent place to base yourself as it has brilliant public transport for the entire country - this is not something that all parts of Ireland enjoy.
We need support with a things so your weeks will vary and include childcare, cooking, cleaning, gardening and painting. In exchange you will have your own bedroom, and all bills and food are included. We would support someone who wants to travel and will do all to help you enjoy your experience in Ireland and with our family. We would really someone who speaks Spanish. I (wife/mother) am the only female in the house and I would like to revive my Spanish. We would like to Skype chat and draw up a contract with you before you arrive so everyone feels happy about the arrangement. We are looking for someone who enjoys cooking as we are hoping to taste your cultural cooking and you to experience ours.
