  • Description

    Description

    We understand it has been a very strange time this last year but if things start to improve by the summer and travel has opened up and you have had a vaccine or you are a Workaway currently in Ireland, we would love to invite you into our home.
    We are a family run business in Caherdaniel, on the Ring of Kerry. Myself (Kerryann) and my husband John give seaweed workshops and catering lunches for the public and tour groups and also we craft seaweed Cutlery.
    We work from our home and the local beaches. We have two girls, 5 year old and a 7 year old and would love to have someone to come and help us out with the kids.

    We live in a beautiful historical coastal region in South West Ireland and work adjacent to a national park. The nature that surrounds us is astounding. We are keen foragers, love fishing from the rocks and our small boat and our primary business is about Sharing our knowledge of the flora and fauna that surrounds with people.

    We are currently looking for a female workawayer that enjoys caring for children, who is over the age of 25 (insurance purposes for car) and has a full clean driving license.

    Then they can take the kids to the beach or woods etc on the days we are working from home. Sometimes it takes double the time with the two girls under our feet. Having someone there to distract them would be great. Ideally it would be wonderful if someone could join us from May to Sept (we are flexible with dates).
