  • Description


    We are a couple in our thirties. Deirdre works as a psychologist with the national health service and Kenny works as a secondary school teacher. We have three small children, Maggie (5) Cara (2 years old) and baby Doireann
    Our house is ideally located ten minutes drive to Galway city, very close to major Supermarkets and a local shop. We are just off the Wild Atlantic Way and our house can be used as a gateway to explore the many wonderful landscapes of the West of Ireland including, Connemara, Co. Mayo, Co. Clare and the islands off the Galway coast.

    We are sociable friendly people.

    We can offer you your own room with bathroom in a modern comfortable warm home.

    If you have a driving license you can use our 2nd car.

    I am trying to find someone who can care for our baby (currently 6 months old) when i return to work in April from maternity leave. The baby will be I intend to work for 3 days per week. Our 3 year old will be attending montessori from 9-1pm and there may be 3 hours of minding her also, from 1pm until 4pm when one of us would return home.

    Experience of caring for small children would be desirable. If you were to work above the 25 hours on a given week we can pay you for this.
