Geforderte Mindest-Aufenthaltsdauer: mindestens 2 Wochen
We live on the scenic West coast of Ireland - between the towns of Newport & Westport in County Mayo. I live with 3 children (21 year old girl, 19 year old boy & 15 year old boy), 4 dogs & 5 cats in a large house in the country, surrounded by fields & 70 metres from the sea. It is a very beautiful, quiet and safe place for children to grow up in.
I run a very small English Language school (11 students at a time). The students range in age from 9-16 years old. They stay with us in our house, I provide formal language lessons during the morning and then organise for sporting / cultural / historical activities for them during the afternoons. They stay with us for a 2 week period.
It's a home from home for the students, many of whom are "repeats" and all of whom are recommended by friends or family as I don't advertise anywhere.

This would be 2 weeks' volunteer work. Mainly "domestic" - hanging out washing, washing up, generally helping to keep the house in order whilst it's full of teenage kids! Basic food preparation, hanging out with the students.

Was noch ...
This is an idyllic spot for foreign visitors as it is the West of Ireland at its most beautiful - right on the sea and surrounded by fields. 15 minutes away from Westport - voted the "Best Place to live in Ireland" - full of culture, music, night life, nature, history, adventure sports, outdoor activities... Any hobbies can be fulfilled!
The volunteer would be able to partake in a number of activities that I arrange for students and would be surrounded by English language learning activities. I'd be most happy to help any language learning endeavours he / she would like to do.
I'm full for the summer now :)
I would be able to collect and deliver the volunteer from Dublin airport direct to our home on the dates above.

Thank you very much for everything Kate!
I can't thank her enough for the wonderful two weeks I've spent in her school. This was my first experience as a workawayer and I couldn't be luckier! The house and the surroundings are absolutely stunning and so is Kate's family. I hope I will meet them again soon. Kate was very accomodating and patient in explaining me what
I shall look forward to
I can only recommend you and your language school to all the other workaways. It has everything, that made my first workaway experience perfect - nice and welcoming family and students, a wonderful house with a great view and close to the sea, a variety of activities in the afternoon for example
I can wholeheartedly recommend her - her patience and commitment were excellent, the students loved her! Some have re-booked with me just to be with her again, which is the highest praise.
Apart from teaching, her role in previous summers
The area the house is in was beautiful. You
