    Description

    I'm an artist who works in photography and film and live with my seven year old son and our lovely dog, a brittany spaniel, in a beautiful three bedroom mountainside cottage outside Dingle town near Ballydavid. We're on 1 acre overlooking Mt Brandon. It's 5 minutes from beautiful beaches (which we make a lot of use of!). We are both very into the outdoors so we make the most of the setting we live in. Loic is in first class in the local school. He speaks English French and Irish! I'm interesting in eating healthy food and really enjoy yoga!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The location is stunning. We like to have a healthy lifestyle so like minded people would benefit! The house is full of beautiful photography and art books. My son is great fun and a really active boy so being tuned in to that would be essential! I'm an internationally recognised artist and am happy to share my experiences - although the actual work I require of a work-away does not involve being artistic.

    I'd be particularly interested in someone who has some experience with working with children and is good natured and easy to be around! My son has dyslexia so someone who has experience in working with kids in this area would be a plus. In general I'm looking for some help around the house/ garden that would vary from day to day. I would like help with cooking a cleaning also. I like to eat a healthy organic diet so an interest in that would be good. Driving would be essential as it's a rural setting. And of course juggling a 10 year old and a dog with being a busy working Mom can involve a lot of multi tasking! So I would need someone who is quite flexible and also capable to doing some of the above. As the bedrooms are small I can only accommodate ONE person not two.

    Beautifully renovated 100 year old stone cottage on 1 acre of land, overlooking Mt Brandon. It's open plan living-room/ kitchen area with wood burning stove/ TV etc. There's a large dining area off this with large windows with beautiful mountain and garden views. There are three bedrooms upstairs, two double, one single. There are two bathrooms. The house is 7 minutes drive from Dingle town, so being able to drive is essential (and having a valid driving llicense). There is internet access (wifi). No smokers please.

    The Dingle Peninsula is one of the most beautiful spectacular regions in Ireland. The town is very lively with lots of great resturants, cafes, pubs etc. If you are into outdoor life and participating in a busy (but small) creative family, it should be an enjoyable experience.
