We are a family of 3 people who live in a small town in the North of Ireland - myself, my partner and my son. Our home is centrally located for sightseeing with easy access to public transport. We enjoy days out and you would be invited to join us on any family trips. We have one dog and nine cats so our home is not suitable for allergy sufferers. My son also has a snake (not poisonous) which lives in a tank in his room but you would not be required to look after it! You will help with the care of the other animals.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
If English is not your first language, I am always happy to help our workawayers improve their language skills and I try to make the effort to learn from them too. I love to learn about other cultures and I enjoy showing visitors ours. We often enjoy days out with our workawayers visiting local tourist sites.
The main jobs will be inside such as language tuition, laundry, cleaning the house, cooking, shopping and looking after our animals. There will be weeding and grass cutting in the garden and maybe some painting inside or outside, depending on the weather. You will help a maximum of 4 hours per day with 2 days off each week.
This is a bedroom for 1 person in our home and you will share the bathroom and kitchen with us. I will prepare your meals or provide food for you to cook with. We have Wifi and cable TV available for your use. Sorry we cannot accommodate more than one person.
I have had previous experience of workawayers, au pairs, volunteers and couchsurfers staying with me from different websites. We like to be easy going and don't really have a strict routine.
At the moment, I only require someone for a maximum of two weeks but longer stays might be possible.
