    Good Host
  • Description


    We are a family of 2 Adults and 4 children. My husband and i would welcome some extra help with tidying/cleaning in our home, we would welcome someone who can help with the home and children (we need an extra set of hands). Our youngest child would be the one that would need help with afterschool homework and play.

    We need someone who is flexible and can just help us out as a third adult. The children are at school everyday and the evenings are very busy.

    We live in the North West of Ireland close to the river Shannon and close to wonderful scenic walking areas. If you love the countryside then you will be happy here - we are 2km from a village where our children go to school and about 6km from Carrick-on-Shannon.

    We are surrounded by lovely canal walks and some great towns close to public transport to explore Ireland.

  • Help


    We are seeking a volunteer who can join us and help out with general duties and get involved with our family life. It is difficult to get all the general tidying, cleaning house (everyday things) helping with children including childcare, cooking, feed the dog....... Our daily lives are busy and there are so many different projects to complete at our home so an extra adult would be great.
