We are a friendly family who live in a town located in Donegal - a beautiful corner of North-West Ireland. Two children, boys aged 14 & 10 plus one Schnauzer dog. We would welcome someone who is kind-hearted, friendly, clean and honest to visit us, experience Donegal and help out where possible.
When we are not working or at school we like to walk our dog, go to the beach, listen to music, do creative projects, cook, read, explore, climb trees, garden, do yoga, see our friends, watch movies and play computer games (too much sometimes!)
We would love someone who could teach us new skills as well -maybe some new foods to cook, some lovely art ideas, teach us how to play guitar!
We will welcome the right person into our home but please be available to Skype before-hand so that we can talk to you 'in person'. If you have references or testimonials to send in advance that would be very helpful. We are meat-eaters and try to be healthy with our food-choices. We are also an alcohol-free house, but if you wish to drink alcohol there are plenty of pubs close by! Smokers must smoke outside the house also.

What else ...
There really is lots to do in Donegal. Loads of outdoors stuff with stunning beaches, hill-walking, culture and watersports. This is a very beautiful county where the people are friendly and love to have fun. The main town where we live is busy with some great shops, bowling alley, cinema etc, but its essential to travel to the other little villages and scenic spots around the county to get a true feel for this place. I cannot provide you with transport so you must be prepared to make your own arrangements to explore by bus. We are about 25 minutes from Northern Ireland so great day-trips available to Derry and Belfast.
