  • Description


    Hi Traveller!:)
    We are a family of 4 ,Parents both 41 years, a girl 7yrs and a little boy 5yrs, 1 dog,2 cats and 12 chickens,30 Beehives and plenty of wild foxes. About 120 cows live next door to us, so it's real country life.(But we are not farmers)
    we currently also have 2 students living with us, a German and a Spanish person, so as they are here to lean English.So please note I CANNOT TAKE workawayer from German or Spanish speaking countries at the moment.(Sorry it is in a contract)

    I am attending a Permaculture/Sustainable Horticulture course and I need a little help getting our garden set up for growing but also some childcare so I can attend the lectures. So really just need an extra pair of hands. Some gardening, painting and general helping with chickens/bees could be anything.

    It would be very beneficial if you were over 25 with a full driving licence. We have a spare car...but you must be over 25 to drive.

    We are very sociable, friendly and include our Work Away as a part of our family, and in turn would expect you to be friendly genuine and easy going:) Just to give you an idea of what sort of family we are...we are still friends with all our old Au-pairs and Workaway and we have even visited some them and they come back to visit us.
    Anyway we require somebody soon.,we would like somebody who can stay minimum 3 weeks.....
    We live in Kinsale which is amazing and beautiful, and right on the wild Atlantic way....our house is only 20 minutes walk to middle of the town and there is a local beach too.
    We go alot to the beaches, the woods and on mini adventure. You are welcome to join us
