We are a family of 3 (mum, dad & 5 year-old girl) living on the beautiful Ring of Kerry / Skellig Region, in the town of Cahersiveen, next to the Atlantic ocean. We are a 2 minute walk to the local supermarket / pub and a 10 minute walk to the centre of town. Both parents are working so we are looking for someone to join our family to help out with gardening and general maintenance. We are happy to host an individual traveller or a couple.
We live in a small and close-knit community which is a vibrant place to live, especially in the Summer months. We have travelled extensively and are frequent hosts of various nationalities. We would love you to become part of our family, sharing meals, stories and experiences. The local pubs have regular live music in this rural town.
We would love the opportunity to introduce you to traditional dishes and vice versa.
It would be great if you can help out with general maintenance/ painting. Alternatively, if you are more of a gardener, we are looking for assistance in maintaining and enhancing our garden and preparing it for the Summer. There is quite a lot of clearing to be done as well as planting.
We can cater for a traveller on their own or also for a couple.
One room with ensuite. All meals provided. Breakfast and Lunch is a 'help yourself' from the food in the kitchen, with dinner cooked each day, and the family evening meal a time for engaging and lively conversations.
