We live upon the sea shore, five kilometres from Inch beach and have the Sliabh Mish mountains behind us.Our fun loving kids are aged 6 and 7. We love the outdoors and our back garden is perfect for hiking . Maryanne loves singing and dancing and entertaining us. Joseph is a muck magnet and cant keep clean !!!

We also have 3 dogs a lurcher ,pomeranian , and a Irish wolfhound there all part of our family.We have a few goats that I milk for ourselves and make cheese with ,3 donkeys, a few hens and tayto and spud our farm cats. We like to go kayaking in the sea in front of our home and its a good spot for fishing to. We have been living here for over 8 years and every day we feel so blessed to live in such a majestic magical place surrounded by beautiful nature.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    For the outdoors person there is a wealth of activities including hill walking, kayaking, fishing & swimming.Inch beech close by is great for surfing and has surf lessons. We live in the heart of the west Kerry countryside , surrounded by the natural unspoiled beauty of the Slive Mish mountains you would experience life in rural Ireland.You would learn how to milk goats and make your own yummy cheese.

    We would be looking for someone with experience in childcare to help out minding our gorgeous kids . Some light house work meaning just helping keeping the place tidy, that seems to be an never ending task with our two children !!! Someone who is fun has initiative to see what has to done. Someone mature ,independent who loves children and the outdoors.
    There's also a lot of work on the farm. Milking the goats twice a day , giving the kid goats bottles there so cute !! Also heavy work cleaning out the sheds. There's always something to do !!
