We are an average family of 5 living in a larger-than-average house in a small town in County Kilkenny in the Soith East of Ireland. I have a number of holiday lettings that are busy during the months of April-September and this keeps me busy! During the school summer holidays (July and August), it would be great to have someone to do general household chores for a couple of hours each morning - laundry, vacuuming, prepare dinner sometimes etc. Basically , I need an extra pair of hands to help with basic house chores. We have 3 children, aged between 15 and 10, 2 cats and 2 dogs. The older 2 are mostly self entertaining but the 10 year old loves someone to take her swimming at the local river, bake cookies, paint, jump on the trampoline and generally be her companion😊.

Thomastown is a thriving town about 16km south of Kilkenny city. It has cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, a lovely library. It is a very multicultural town, owing to a number of factors but chief among them is Grennan Mill Craft School which brings students from all over the country (and world!) to do their 2-year course. There is numerous buses daily in and out of town and a train station 2km walk away. We are steeped in beautiful castles and historical sites. Previous work-aways have gone to visit many parts of the country by train and bus.
As I outlined above, we need another adult, female, to be around the house to help with everyday house chores and play/do activities with our youngest daughter. Sometimes required to prepare dinner.

Thomastown is a busy rural town, 15 kilometres approx from Kilkenny City. It has a regular bus service and a train station (main Dublin-Waterford line) so you can access the rest of the country without much bother. Over the years, we have had loads of language students, au pairs and workawayers staying with us and remain in good contact via facebook and whatsapp with them all. We love having someone stay with us for a period of time and we think we all benefit from it.
