  • Description


    Starting in mid June 2023.
    My name is Tara. We are a young family living in the beautiful coastal village of Ballybunion on the Wild Atlantic Way. We have one daughter, aged 9 (almost 10). Our house is a 10 minute walk from town and the beach.
    My daughter loves music, lego, using her imagination and all things active.
    I cook dinner most days and we eat a wide variety of foods.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We will be mainly in our summer house in Ballybunion, Co. Kerry. It is a beautiful small coastal town with friendly people. Our house has stunning ocean views and is located a ten minute walk from a beautiful beach with miles of sandy beaches. We will also spend some time in our home in Ranelagh in Dublin. We like being outdoors enjoying nature so it would be great if travellers enjoyed this lifestyle also. We have also travelled extensively and lived abroad for many years before moving back to Ireland 2 years ago. It would be great to share our home with someone who is interested in the world around them and who is curious to travel and see it. We would like our workawayer to be independent, happy to explore, meet new people and to enjoy the beautiful area in which we live.

  • Help


    We need help with minding our 9 year old daughter from mid June to the beginning of August, mainly weekday mornings and some evenings. We need someone who is mature and fun loving, knows how to mind children and is happy to help around the house occasionally. Enjoying being on the beach is a big plus for us given where we live.
    Prefer female workawayers.

  • Accommodation


    Our house is very spacious so you will never feel crowded. It was completely renovated in 2016 with all mod-cons. You will have your own bedroom and bathroom facilities. There is WIFI access. It is a 10 minute walk into the local town of Ballybunion. We cook dinner most evenings and would include you in those meals. For all other meals, we would provide the ingredients for you to prepare yourself.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Ballybunion is in the heart of Co. Kerry. There are good public transport links to Tralee which allows you access to the rest of Kerry which is a county steeped in Irish cultural heritage and natural beauty. Locally you can surf(excellent surf school in town), sea swim, hike and relax. We may travel to Dublin during your stay (where we live full time). Should we do so, you would also have a room and bathroom facilities there.
    We would expect you to be kind to our daughter and treat everyone that you meet with respect. In return we will do the same for you.
