Hi. We are a family of 4. We live in the beautiful charming and scenic village of Blarney, home of Blarney Castle and Gardens. Tourists from all over the world flock here to kiss the Blarney stone and experience an Irish way of life. We live opposite a mature woodland within a short walking distance of Blarney village. The beautiful city of Cork is just 10 minutes drive. We would welcome help with light housework and with one child. We are a loving caring welcoming family. You will receive all your home cooked meals. 😊

Helpers can enjoy Blarney castle and surrounding countryside on time off. Good bus service into the city to see the famous English Market and other sights.
