We are a family of 3, two girls aged 8 and 11.
Some light housework like tidying up, washing dishes, helping and teaching the girls to keep their room clean and playing games with the girls that involves movement and time outdoors.
I am very conscious of recycling and having respect for our environment and would like someone who has the same interests or is keen to learn them.
We are about a 10 minute walk to the town centre and a 40 minute bus drive into cork city.
Non-smoker essential. I would also prefer an animal lover.
Babysitting and creative play

Help around the house
There is a local pub where all the au pairs meet up once a week. The are also regular trips to different parts of the country organised for these au pairs for a minimal payment. Ask my last 2 au pairs for details or I can find out.
The au pair is also welcome to join us on any outings.

There is a cinema in the neighbouring town Clonakity and a beach there as well which we hope to go to in the summer. Cork City is 30-40 minutes away which is a major city with everything.
