  • Description


    We are a family of five myself Louise my husband Kevin and our three boys Paul 14, Conor 11 and Gavin 8. The three boys are very active and lots of fun, but need constant supervision. We are very lucky to live on the edge of my parents farm. We love the great outdoors and try to spend as much time as possible outside. We don't allow the children much tv and they don't have any screen games therefore they need time and help with games books etc.You would need to enjoy kids and have experience with them. You would need to like animals as our two dogs Flash and Toby live in the house with us. You would need to enjoy country life as we live on a mountain 5km from the nearest town and 60km from the nearest city. We have been doing workaway for 5 summers now and my parents 6 summers and have many friends all over the world as a result. We feel it's our way of bringing the world to our boys. We love to share some of you culture as well as sharing ours with you.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will experience some of the most beautiful parts of Ireland in West Cork - extraordinary views, green rolling hills and hikes in nature. As you will be living with us, you will get to experience day to day life of an Irish family and learn games, cultural traditions and even about the local sports. Our family loves travelling around and showing the boys what West Cork has to offer, and you will be able to join us on these excursions. I teach nutrition and mindfulness so you would have an opportunity to dip into both areas.

    We are currently looking for some one to do a little babysitting and housework and cooking. There would be two free days in the week. The days would depend on the schedule for the week. The other days would be 5 hours. We would need someone who likes the country as its pretty remote out here. This situation would be ideal for someone who is studying as we are out of the house for 4 days from 9-3 and then the boys would be dropped home by my parents for looking after. During the holiday period there would be more hours babysitting and less hours alone.
