    I am American but living in Ireland for over 20 years now. Doolin is an amazing part of Ireland - the capital of traditional Irish music - with music nightly in all of the pubs during the summer and at least one every night of the winter, and a good few festivals as well. There are all walks of life here and so many nationalities that call our little village home. The famous Cliffs of Moher are only 5.5 miles away and the Burren National Park is on our doorstep. You can also reach the Aran Islands via ferry from Doolin Pier. I'm part of a little group of women that throw ourselves into the sea each morning and you're welcome to give this a go! Also, my girls will gladly fill you in on some of the Irish they learn in school :)

    Hello! I'm mainly looking for help with my 2 youngest (of 3) daughters, who are very entertaining, loving, self-sufficient, wonderful girls aged 12 & 8. I work a full time job, so I'm a busy lady, but my daughters alternate their time between their father's house and my house every 3 days (so 3 days/nights with me and 3 with him), so the childcare will mainly cover 3 days at at time only. but I could also use some help around the house - don't worry, we are very laid back! We have 2 overly friendly dogs and a cat, plus a donkey outside (none of which you will be expected to care for but you may fall in love with them).

    You'll have your own room but a shared bathroom - there are 2 to use though, the one in my daughter's room or there is one downstairs. We would like to consider you as part of our family here! I enjoy cooking and would do so most nights but always welcome the chance to cook with others.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    When my older 2 daughters were younger we had au pairs every year (for 10 years at least) and have made great friendships with all of them - one even stayed in Doolin and is now married! So we are used to welcoming people into our home. My husband and I have separated so we were an all girls (girl power!), house for a long time but my boyfriend has since moved in - he embraces this :) So expect lots of dancing and art and a bit of craziness - if this sounds like something you'd enjoy, please apply!
