We are a young family of 5 looking to offer a cultural exchange to a workawayer. My husband and I work very hard during the summer but only during office hours and we are looking for a kind, fun, friendly, trustworthy and exciting female to join our family to help with child care, household duties and cooking. The kids are a little older so taking care of them is easy but really what I want is someone who will get them out doors, teach them new things and help them make memories this summer. The work will be maximum 4 days per week and really will entail going for walks with the children, organising excursions. The children are 6 and 12, are very welcoming and friendly. They will have summer camps during the summer also so on those weeks you will have a lot of free time. You will be free every weekend to enjoy our beautiful town and its surroundings. We hope to learn from you and we look forward to sharing our home with you. We have welcomed many students into our home over the years from Italy, France, Spain and Canada and all have become and remain good friends. We are a close family and enjoy socialising as a family unit with bbqs etc. We are very good cooks and eat a wide variety of different foods and we welcome someone who also enjoys cooking who might like to share their culinary experiences with us. We enjoy a beer and a good glass of wine in the evening and you would be welcome to join us. We fine together for most meals and we all eat at the main kitchen table which is very important to us.
We have two very friendly dogs named Bobbi and Skye who are our fur babies.
We also have a 19 year old daughter who will be living at home this summer but she will be working locally. She is currently in University studying multimedia communications.

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
In return for your work you will be given 3 meals a day and your own ensuite room. We have WiFi access. We live in a beautiful cosmopolitan tourist area of County Kerry and there is a bus service to major towns locally.
There is a very friendly conversational English group which meets in a local pub once a week and I would be happy to introduce you. In addition there is also the option to attend English classes if you wish.
This is the ideal opportunity for a workawayer or a couple to travel while having a cosy base in a beautiful part of Ireland.
We are looking for someone to help with the kids and general household duties, keeping the house tidy and cooking. I also hope to welcome someone who can teach the children French and help with guitar practice for my son who is 12.
We live in a detached house with a large garden and beautiful views. It is set in a quiet mountainous area but just 1.5km from town which is very safe to walk. You will have your own King size bedroom ensuite with power shower.
Ireland is a relatively small country so weekend trips to Cork, Dublin, Galway and Belfast are very doable as are trips to other countries like the UK, Germany and Spain from our local airports.
