  • Description


    We are are a family of 4, me, my husband Aaron and our daughters Annabelle 6 and Sophie 3.. We also have a very friendly boxer dog! We consider ourselves a friendly, easy going family who like to have fun. As a family we like to mess around and play jokes, there is always laughter around the house. Annabelle loves arts and crafts and enjoys the outdoors and general messing about. Sophie is a very contented little girl, who loves to mess and have fun aswell. My husband works full time, and I am beginning part time work very soon, so we are looking for someone as soon as possible to come and help around the house and with the children.

    We live out in the countryside in a place called Ardfield, just a few miles from Clonakilty, and surrounded by some of the most picturesque areas in Ireland.

    We live in Clonakilty in west cork. It's a lovely tourist town right by the sea. It is a very friendly multicultural town with lots to do and see. There are lots of au pairs and other workawayers based in Clonakilty, so there is plenty of opportunity to develop friendships.
    Our house is located 7 mins drive outside the town in a little village called Ardfield. (No public transport but we drive to town at least twice a day) There are sea views from our house and plenty of beaches near by including the famous award winning Inchydoney Beach. We are 50 minutes from Cork City with buses going daily.

    If this sounds like something you would like to experience please send me an email. If you have any questions or require more info please feel free to contact me also . We look forward to hearing from you. Bye for now, Deirdre, Aaron, Annabelle and Sophie.
