  • Description


    We are a family of 4, husband and wife in our 40’s and lucky to have 2 gorgeous girls aged 7 and 5. We bought and did a lot of work to our home 8 years ago and feel very blessed to live in such a wonderful area. The time has come for some more maintenance and updating so some help with this would be great. We love meeting new people and have had great experiences with aupairs over the past few years, but the girls are in school now.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a very scenic area, the house has valley views with woodland and beach just over a mile from our home. So a love of the outdoors would be good. The center of Cork city is only 20km away for a more urban experience. We also have a fantastic community Centre across the road which offers lots of different arts, cultural and fitness experiences. Pub and local shop are all within 200m walking distance too. With a large garden of plants, vegetables, chickens and bees there is plenty to do and learn depending on the persons interests.

    We have had aupairs to help look after our two girls, aged 5 and 7, and really enjoyed the experience of sharing our home with them. So it would be good to continue to meet new people and learn their culture and share experiences.
