  • Description


    Looking for someone to help with daily life/house keeping/childminding to join our fun loving family in East Cork. My husband and I both work full time. We have 3 children, 2 girls and a boy. They are aged 5,4&2. We love all types of activities including car racing, swimming, cooking, walking, baking, music & crafting. Our home is in the lush green countryside, surrounded by green fields and forests. We also have 2 dogs and 6 chickens. Our aim would be to assist you in your journey of exploring Ireland. We are looking for a fun loving person to help us with the care of our children and our home.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are an active and enthusiastic family.

    We play music, race cars, love to garden, go swimming in the sea, go on hikes, travel around Ireland, attend music events, love to socialize, craft, sew, knit, crochet, make lace......

    My husband is a mechanic and while I work as an engineer by day I am a music teacher at night and run a small craft business. I like to speak small amounts of Irish with the children, we love to eat food from all around the world but we do have a largely Irish diet, I play classical and traditional Irish music so you would get a great feel for Irish culture through the music and maybe attending Irish music events.

  • Help


    Main duties would be to clean, cook and small amounts of childcare.
    Essentially to keep the house running while we are working.
    General cleaning and tidying, cook one meal a day, help get the children out to school and small amounts of childcare if both of us are working. It would only be 4-5hours per day, Mon-Thurs/Fri and the weekends are totally yours. (Both my husband and I work opposite hours so normally there is always one of us at home)
