  • Description


    Hi, my husband Colin and I are looking for help with our twins Clara and Dylan, who are 3 years old. Colin works full time in Cork and I am a stay at home mum, however I give private literacy tuition two afternoons a week.

    We would love to welcome you to our home where you will be treated as a member of our family. We are looking for someone who loves playing with children but is also happy to do some light housework and cooking. We may also ask you to babysit one evening a week in lieu of helping us during the day.

    We are flexible and happy to provide lifts to Little Island train station which is a 5 minute drive from our home and brings you into Cork city in 10 minutes. Our home is situated in beautiful countryside and is very peaceful yet within easy reach of Cork city.

    I worked as an English teacher in Spain so I am happy to help with your English.

    Our previous workaway volunteers became part of our family and have really enjoyed staying here. Our current workaway has been with us since December and the children really enjoy playing with her, which is most important to us.
