  • Description


    We are a family of five. Both of us Caroline and Paul home educate our three children 14, 10 and 7. We enjoy travelling but are staying home at the moment to finish an extension on our house. We live on one acre in the midlands of Ireland. We enjoy gardening. And would like some help inside the house, building our new kitchen. And the children like languages. So we would like to learn your language. We can offer a bedroom in our house. We would love a family to come to play with our children.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They can experience an unschooling way of life. Join us in family life. You can enjoy our outdoor hot tub. If you stay long enough we might even have a yurt built or you can help with building it. We have a piano and guitars but are beginners. We like art and yoga and would love to get more ideas about cooking Indian food, raw food, and vegetarian diets.

  • Help


    We are building an extension and will have a carpenter and plumber on-site. We would like someone who could help them with general work. An important part for us though is to learn languages. So not all the time is to be spent building. But speaking and learning languages with the children. They are interested in Spanish and French at the moment but if you have another language they will be happy too.
