  • Description


    Couple with 5 week old baby (Luke) and 1 year old (Conor) living in Killarney, 7 min drive to town centre. Both working professionals. Both from the locality and both families living nearby. Rosemarie is on Maternity Leave.
    Would need help minding Luke and helping around the house. Conor goes to Crèche 5 days a week. We would need someone that has had experience with children. We would love someone that has the ability to use their own initiative in regards to helping out e.g. if laundry done, fold and put away, if cup on counter, put in dishwasher, if floors dirty hoover and mop etc.
    There is so much culture and things to do in Killarney town e.g Killarney lakes, Muckross House and gardens, Ross cadtle, boat Trips, Horse riding, Muckross Abbey, Killarney National park, St Marys Catherdral, cycle paths and endless walking opportunities.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Killarney town is a very tourist friendly location with lots of culture and history on our doorstep. Killarney National Park, Ireland’s oldest National Park is located just minutes from our house. Killarney is also Ireland’s Oldest National Park, formed in 1932 when Senator Arthur Vincent and his family entrusted Muckross House & Estate into the care of the Irish State. Now the focal point for many visitors to Killarney, Muckross House & Gardens has been entertaining as a 19th century mansion, containing all original pieces of furniture, artwork, trophies and many other furnishings from that period. The Park is currently managed jointly by the National Parks & Wildlife Services and the Trustees of Muckross House, Killarney.

    There is so much amazing culture to take in, Muckross Abbey, Innishfallen Island, Lord Brandons Cottage, St Marys Cathedral etc

    Rosemarie is off work on Maternity Leave. She would like help around the house with cleaning, cooking and minding Luke while she is in the house (possibly taking much needed nap). We are both off on weekends therefore you will have most weekends free to travel or sightsee. We would like to have a date night once a week where we eat out and go for a few drinks. We are very flexible and will ensure that anyone that stays with us will be treated like a family member.
