  • Description


    We are blessed to be living in a really beautiful place, one of the best surfing beaches in Ireland is outside our door, and there is a wonderful friendly community here.
    I'm Tara, mother to three boys, aged from 9 years up to 22 years. We have two big friendly dogs. We eat a vegetarian diet.
    I need help with childcare, garden, housekeeping and cooking meals.
    We are a very easy going and friendly family. We have a couple of bikes and a kayak you can borrow if you like to see the local area. We love having visitors from around the world!
    It is good to understand that the experience is what you make of it. You will have plenty of free time but we live in a rural and quiet area and we are not home all the time so it's important that you are independent, sociable and adventurous enough to find your way around and meet people for yourself.

    Walking the dogs, helping with domestic tasks, house cleaning, laundry and cooking meals - very occasionally child-minding. Basic DIY skills to be able to do small maintenance and repair jobs would be a bonus but not essential. Language exchange welcome.
