    West Cork is a very scenic area of Ireland and has many beautiful coastal areas which are popular with sea swimmers, surfers, sailers, kayakers, divers and hikers.

    There are also many historic monuments such as abbeys and castles close by. We are located near Clonakilty which has a lively live music scene and Kinsale which has many art galleries and famous restaurants.

    We are looking for an extra pair of hands to help with minding our toddler for the hours he is not in creche. This would be some evenings and weekend days as during the day Mon-Fri he is attending a local creche.
