    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My husband is English and I am Spanish. We have been living in Ireland for the last 15 years and both are very well integrated in the amazing Irish culture. As we have traveled ourselves and lived abroad, we understand how wonderful it is to share cultures and learn from others. Living with us shows that balancing cultures is fun and very very productive. A bit of humour and understanding is all you need to get on with everybody.

    We are a family of three (mum, dad and an eight year old lovely boy), two cats and a dog. We live 2 miles from Kinsale, in the beautiful country side. We can provide access to a bike to get into town. We can help out with lifts occasionally. We love the workaway program and have used it plenty of times in the past for childcare. We need help with a couple of hours a day of childcare, some house keeping tasks and some gardening. Also making sure that our dog gets plenty of running.

    We have a 4 bedroom house and your room would be a lovely double bedroom with wifi access. Kinsale is close by and and Cork airport is only 15 mins away. Our house is only 5 mins form the beach, horse riding schools, cafes and shops in the beautiful town of Kinsale. There are lots to do and see in Kinsale.

    There will be plenty of time off. There are lots of activities to do in Kinsale. Hiking, horse riding sea swimming, cycling, sailing, surfing etc. You just need to want to do something different and go for it.
    We like going for walks to the beach and the forest. We play tennis and cycle. Our Gabi loves climbing and getting his hands dirty in any outdoor activities.
