  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 4 living in the vibrant, rural town of Killorglin in beautiful County Kerry (2 adults, 2 children aged 7 & 9)

    We are looking for responsible singles, couples or friends with reasonably good english,

    Duties are mainly cleaning & child-minding, with some projects around the house such as painting or gardening.

    In exchange for meals & accommodation, we ask for help for approx 5 hours per day, 5 days per week.

    If you have a genuine interest in learning more about the countryside, sightseeing & other activities and would like to base yourself in a beautiful part of the country while helping in a lovely and calm (mostly calm :o) environment, we look forward to hearing from you !

    Our current workawayers leave us on Feb 9th and we are looking to take on more workawayers ASAP for a minimum of 3-4 weeks stay.

    Hope to hear from you soon !

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are an English-speaking family and this would help volunteers improve their English. However, we do require you to have a good level of English speaking.
    We live in a beautiful Irish town with nearby beach (14 km), mountain walks & vibrant culture. We are on the "Ring of Kerry" and "Wild Atlantic Way".
    Kerry airport is 20 minutes drive away.
    Killarney train station is 20 minutes drive away.
    There is a good bus service to Tralee or Killarney, which connect to a larger service around Ireland.

  • Help

    Help

    Household chores, gardening, painting, maintenance is usually the main help.

    As we have had quite a few volunteers over the past few years, we have learned what suits us as a family. We require a lot of time & space as a family, so will not spend a lot of time with the volunteer(s), therefore it would suit someone or a couple who are independent & likes to do their own thing in their free time!

    We will provide a great place to stay plus fab meals. You can use the family kitchen to cook your own meals & we will also have some meals together.
