  • Description


    Hiya! We live in Midleton, a town within 20 mins of Cork City. Its a very historic town with lots of cultural activities/places to visit in the locality. We have 4 children, ranging in age from 12 to 5 years old. Currently hoping to welcome a big sister Workawayer.

    Hi, we are a family of 6, three girls and 1 boy, Sadhbh aged 10, Fiadh aged 7, and Doireann aged 5 and Rian is 12. I (Maire) am a primary schoolteacher working part time. My husband Tom is a post primary school teacher. We also have a puppy who loves company & to be taken for walks.

    Our children are full of fun and energy. They will make you feel welcome and at home.

    We live 10 min walk to the town of Midleton where there are lots of shops, cinema and local attractions and 25 mins from Cork City so plenty to do in your free time. The public bus stop is 30 seconds from our house! The train service is a short walk from our house.

    We will be delighted to guide you sightseeing and bring you to the local attractions.
