  • Description

    Description

    We are looking for someone that could join us end of November until the week before Christmas (18th of December).

    We are Aurianne, Florian, Célestine and Edgar, a Swiss family leaving in the vibrant city of Galway on the beautiful west coast of Ireland. We live 5 minutes from the ocean and the forest, there are good bus connection to the city centre (about 20min).
    Our kids are 3 and 6 years old, they love to spend time outside, do crafts and many other things. They are both in a Steiner school/Kindergarten every morning and we really enjoy this nice and nurturing environment for them.
    We would love to welcome someone in our home for a couple of weeks to share our family life and help us with a couple of hours of childminding and light housework.
    We offer a small room with a double bed and you'll have to share the bathroom with the kids.
    We usually say no to native French-speaking workawayers, as our mother language is French and we prefer our kids to practive their English with the workawayers.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Galway is a great city to discover Ireland, lots of music in the streets and great starting point to explore the Connemara and the Aran Island.
    As we are also discovering Ireland since a year so we are happy to share this discovery with visitors.
    We'd prefer if you could speak English with the kids but they will probably try to teach you some words in French...

    We live in a semi-detached house in the west side of the city (Knocknacarra). You would stay in our spare room which has a double bed. You'll have to share the bathroom with the kids.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a bus stop 300m from the house (around 15-20min to the city centre), we mainly go around the city with our bikes and could arrange you to use one of them or look for another bike if you'd like.
    There is lots to do in Galway and the Connemara is just a few km away. There are also many beaches around that you can go to by foot or bike.
