  • Description


    Hi, we are a family of 4 living in the beautiful Burren, Co. Clare. We have a farm and a small bakery business which we run from our home. We are a friendly busy household. We live in a beautiful rural location near a small village, it is ideal for someone who loves the countryside, wants to study, is interested in photography, exploring a very popular area of Ireland and would like to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Family members are always travelling to nearby towns so access to other areas is available. There are many beautiful walks and an interesting landscape to discover. At weekends you would be free to see other parts of Ireland, particularly nearby cities and towns and we will be happy to help you organise this.

    We are located 1 hours drive from Galway and Limerick cities and 3 hours from Dublin. Our nearest large town is Ennis which is 26km. We are located 20 km from Lahinch in Co. Clare which is very popular for surfing.

    We are looking for someone who is female, enjoys being around children and having fun, is friendly and a non-smoker.

    While there is no local bus service, there is often a family member popping in and out of the local towns and we will assist with transporting you. We also have bicycles if you want to visit local sights. We have a girl from Italy staying with us now who is very happy and had a girl from France staying with us before this who also enjoyed our time with our family. We have had many aupairs staying with us in the past who have enjoyed being part of our family and have stayed for long periods of time and come back to visit us. Workaway is a lovely opportunity to meet new people and learn about how life is in different countries and it is a welcome experience for our family that we are all enjoying.
