  • Description


    We are looking for workaways who are already in Ireland as we do not have separate accomodation for people to do their quarantine upon arrival in the country.

    We are an easy going couple with two boys who are 10 & 12 and are full of energy! They both love to play soccer, go to the beach, bounce on their trampoline,cycling and generally spend time outside. They also love to read books, colour and draw.
    We live in a small village in West Cork in the countryside, beside the sea and beautiful beaches so it would be ideal for someone who enjoys nature and the outdoors. Our winters are very quiet here but in the summer it is a very busy spot with plenty of tourists around so there is a lively summer atmosphere!

  • Help


    We are looking for 2 people to help take care of our 2 boys, and do a little cooking while we are at work. We run a busy cafe and need help in making sure they are safe and well.
    We would like someone who enjoys playing and interacting with kids and be like an older brother/sister to them, also someone who is patient, responsible and understands children. We would like also that one could use their own initiative, be flexible and happy to do things independently.
