  • Description


    Hi there. I live in a quiet small town in the South east of Ireland with my beautiful 6 year old daughter. I am a single mum who is self employed. Although I have full time child care sometimes I have to travel for work which means I return late some evenings and I'm not home in time to pick up my little girl. My work can be a little demanding sometimes and I can get a little overwhelmed. A friend suggested this scheme to me to relieve some of the pressure related to ' doing it all' - being an attentive, present mum, keeping a lovely home with healthy food cooked at all times, staying on top of my work and being full of energy for all the fun stuff too.
    I am years of experience of working with international volunteers and consider myself to be a good host. I'm really aware of the intercultural and language learning opportunities that come with hosting a guest. I host air Bnb in my home so have good facilities. My daughter and I can offer a very lovely home and good healthy (vegetarian) food as well as a friendly and easy going environment. The surrounding areas are beautiful and I love showing people around.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As mentioned already I am really culturally aware with experience of hosting volunteers/ guests.I am happy to show you around, practice English and connect you to other volunteers in the area. I have volunteered internationally myself in the past so also am aware of some of the challenges that can appear in the midst of exciting opportunities. I really value the ethos of exchange and fairness. I am really open to supporting you to engage with your interests while you are here.

    I need help minding my daughter some mornings and some evenings. She loves swimming and gymnastics so if these are your interests you are a good match.
    I need some help with light housework and gardening maintainance.
    You would have a lot of free time and I'm very flexible as I don't have a structured working timetable My mum also lives close by and offers lots of support.
