  • Description


    hello, I'm Emily and I have two daughters - Zaiah (7) and Betsy (4).
    We are a happy relaxed family who love good food and Nature.
    I work 4 mornings a week on our family's Organic Farm and the girls are in school so you won't start helping out until the girls are home. Mainly I'd like a hand keeping the kitchen and toys tidy and playing with the kids.
    Everyday will be different with no set hours and lots of free time. So this opportunity is best suited to some-one flexible and independent.
    I really like getting to know my workawayers and I want you to have a good time.
    I'm friendly and chatty and so are the girls.
    This is probably best suited to a volunteer who speaks English well, is hands on, positive and confident.
    I love to cook and use predominately Organic ingredients so you'll be well fed. Our house is lovely. Its in the village of shanagarry and i have a small veg tunnel in my back garden. You will have your own en-suite bedroom.
    Were close to the sea and I love swimming. Even through the Winter!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I love to cook and garden so I am always happy to teach.
    My parents own an organic farm 5 min walk from our house so we have access to wonderful produce.
    I get raw butter, fresh sour dough bread, milk and yogurt from the farm.

    Welcoming someone who is good with kids.
    I do have a cleaner so don't worry. I really want you to enjoy your time with us and have fun. Loads of good people around and good food.
    For me the most important thing is that you have a positive attitude and are confident and capable around children and of course are friendly.

    What else ...

    We live in a village called Shanagarry. We're surrounded by beaches. It's lovely to swim and go for long walks.
    we have a bicycle you can borrow for your stay.

    There is also a very pretty fishing village called Ballycotton close by with a beautiful cliff walk and cosy irish pub.

    Midleton is our nearest town, 20mins by car. Cork is our closest city 40 mins by car. There is a bus leaving daily to both from Shanagarry.

    If you stay for a few months we are happy for you to go off travelling around Ireland for a few days then come back to us. So many trips you can do, Ireland is so easy and such a delight to travel through.
