We would also like help with our boys, getting Ryan ready for school, dressing and minding Noah. Fluent english required to help with communication on explaining tasks. Childcare experience is recommended as Noah only 10months. We're not originally from Cork so we'd love to help our workawayer discover the beautiful County Cork. We live in the countryside surrounded by fabulous walks, cycling routes, and 10mins from national rowing centre. Macroom is beautiful town with loads of heritage to be discovered. We are 25-30mins drive from Cork City. Bus from Macroom to Cork every hour.
