We are a family of 4 looking for someone to join our little family to help us out with childcare and light housework - keeping the house clean while you are minding the kids. Claire and Tom both work full time in the local town. Ellie, who turns 7 in September, attends school from 9 to 3 daily. Casey, our son, is 3 since July. He starts preschool on the 2nd September. We are looking for someone who is outgoing and active. We are very involved in sports and are out alot of evening's at matches or training sessions for both soccer and gaelic football. We are hoping for someone who will fit into our lifestyle and to help us with caring for the children. We are very easygoing and have thoroughly enjoyed our Workaway experience so far. We have definitely made some life long friends!
HELP REQUIRED FROM JANUARY 2020
Casey attends preschool every morning and will return home at 1.15pm. Ellie is home everyday at 3.20pm. She gets the school bus home and would need to be picked up at the bottom of our road - a 2 min walk. So we will require you to be available Monday to Friday from 1pm until approx 5pm. Most evenings and every weekends will be free for exploring our beautiful area or further afar. We will require additional help when the children are off school - mid term break and any scheduled days off. It is an ideal place for people interested in nature and photography. We live 11 miles from the only cable car in Ireland. It really is a gorgeous area. West cork is fantastic for travelling also. We are looking for someone to join us and ideally stay for approx 2 months or more but are happy to host someone short term also. If the fit is right and you love the area we would be happy to extend it. Our kids are energetic, outgoing and well mannered. We live in a four bedroom house outside of Castletownbere where there is a wide variety of nationalities. You will have your own room with internet access and as said before, lots of free time. If you have any questions, please ask us. We look forward to talking to you.
If you have any questions, please ask!

Help in the house
We will provide accommodation and food and a home away from home. We live in a fishing port right on the sea which is very popular with tourists. Its a beautiful part of the world. We are a very active outgoing family. We spend lots of time with our extended family and so it really will be like having another family.
We are looking for help with childcare and light housework. Basically to keep the house clean and tidy while you are at home with the children.
Casey will be home from preschool at 1.15pm and Ellie will return home at 3.20pm. Mornings will be completely free and most evenings. We may require you to help in the evening on occassion. It would not be very often. Tom and Claire both finish at 5pm everyday but Tom sometimes has to work until 7pm one evening per week. We would love the kids to experience a different culture too as we do not get alot of oppourtunity to go abroad. We have been hosting workaway's since September 2018. We had a lovely German girl, Elaine, stay with us for 3 months, Michela, who we miss greatly, came from Italy and stayed with us for 5 months. We then had 2 fantastic French girls, Lea and LIse, who stayed with us until the beginning of August. Sophia from Switzerland stayed with us for three weeks and we are now hosting a lovely Dutch girl, Else.
We have had a fantastic experience and have made some great friends!
