Hi We are are a creative, outgoing, adventurous, sociable family of 1 mama and 3 kids living in Dublin
I, Catherine, am the mama of 3 gorgeous children whom are Rachel (11 years) Odhran 9 years and Juliette 6 years.
We have travelled the world and love cycling, the great outdoors, music and anything adventurous, artistic and cultural.
My kids are really creative, intelligent, affectionate and very sociable.
We would love to be a host family. I lived in Spain for 4 years both as a student and in my early 20's so I am very familiar with the feelings that go with trying to learn a new language and getting used to a new culture.
Ideally we would love to find someone over 25 and someone who loves children (who would be happy to share a house with active, chatty, creative kids and one adult) and is up for helping out with tidying, cooking and babysitting.
Alternatively we are looking for someone who is great at gardening, DIY, painting and general maintenance in the garden and house. I am not so handy I am afraid and thus really appreciate any help anyone could offer in this field.
Experience with kids is a huge plus and references are considered essential. Driving License is a huge plus.
Another option is to find anyone who is a videographer, photographer, recording engineer, cinematographer, graphic design artist or anyone in media field. I am a recording artist and musician and am always looking to creative high quality content and so would always welcome talented creative folks with a track record.
We have a car you are welcome to use and it would be a huge advantage to have a current driving license. We would love to welcome you into out artistic family and will be so grateful to avail of any help you can offer.
. I am flexible and ideally would love someone who can be a little flexible with their helping schedule. I live a very holistic lifestyle and healthy eating is very important in our home. I am looking for someone enthusiastic, kind, flexible and who doesn't mind helping on their own initiative. A good eye for tidying and organising is essential and even having OCD is an added advantage :) We started growing our own herbs and vegetables in Lockdown and plan to extend our garden patch in 2021 to include more vegetables., I am also really open to learning everything you have to teach me too.
Anyone who is good with their hands and at fixing thing will have a great advantage. . Carpentry skills would also be a huge advantage..
Please only get in touch if you genuinely love children and are up for working hard and open to helping out in a busy family.
I look forward to hearing back.

If you are interested in gardening, that would be great but not essential. We really would love to grow our own vegetables in our garden. We are been talking about it for years but finally the time has come to do it :)
If you are up for doing a little bit of painting around that house, that would be incredible but not essential.
We would really appreciate somebody who is really kind, an enthusiastic helper and up for helping out on their own initiative.

We like to eat a lot of vegetarian but sometimes like fish, chicken and free range sausages from the local food market in Glasnevin. We require you to be up for cooking 2 or 3 days a week at least ... The other days we will be delighted to cook for you or we can provide the ingredients you need to cook for yourself if you prefer.
