We are a family with three young children (boy 2y, girl 5 boy of 6). My husband is a location manager and stuntman while I am a journalist and run a children's clothing business. We have recently moved to a beautiful rural location about 50 minutes from Dublin. You will have two consecutive days off and will have plenty of time to explore the country. We are looking for someone to help out with the children.
DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We are all native English speakers. This would be a unique opportunity to experience this historic part of Ireland. We are very near some wonderful ancient monuments and historic ruins as well as the lakes of the midlands. Dublin is only a bus ride away and from there you would also be within reach of the Wicklow mountains, beaches and cliffs around the coast.
I would like help primarily with my children to enable me some time to work. Two of them are at School/nursery. We would love some help with looking after them, playing with them indoors and in the walled garden and extensive lawns, taking them for walks in the beautiful fields around the house, visiting the cows and ponies. We welcome help in the mornings getting them ready for school and taking care of the littlest while we do the school run. Although it would be great if you could help clear dishes after meals and tidy toys, there is no cleaning of the house or laundry required.
You would have your own spacious bedroom in this wonderful light peaceful Georgian historic property.
There is a bus stop in our local village with a daily bus to Dublin but our closest town has buses that go there every half hour. We are about a 20 minute walk from shops, cafes and pubs. This is a rural but very beautiful location.
