    Description

    Welcome to our profile:

    We are a family of 5.

    Aoife (Eefa) runs our local Old age home. I am South African and worked as an airline pilot. We have 3 lovely, boys. Archie (8), Thomas (10) and Jack (13).

    In Summer, we will be renovating an old 1967 wooden Folk boat sailing boat that requires sanding and painting. We will also be building a small wooden shed for the boys and as an office/store room.

    We love cooking so if you have some skills we would love to learn from you and if you don't we can teach you a little.

    Our home is in the village of Westport in the centre so you wont need a car and can walk and cycle everywhere.

    I will need you to take the boys swimming and down to the park to play football or basket ball, and normal housework.

    Unfortunately, my wife wants only women to apply - sorry guys!!

    If you speak another language other than English that will be good for the boys to learn. Especially if a Romantic language.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Aoife, the boys Mum, is an Irish speaker while I am South African so you get two cultural experiences in one go! You will live in the heart of the town. It is easy to walk every where so it is easy to make and meet friends. We have a yacht and love sailing so that will be something to share with you. We run the house on Turf fire to heat the water and radiators. That is traditional and produces a lovely aroma in the house. You will learn about working on an old yacht in Summer and learn Irish and the tin whistle if you wish.

    Your main focus will be on looking after my 3 boys busy while I am away and while their mum works and keep the house
    clean and tidy and , ideally a meal cooked in the evenings. You are free every day from 8;30 till 14:30 when the boys come home and again from 6 if dinner is cooked.
