  • Description


    Hi there,

    I live beside the sea in Inverin,
    Connemara with my five year old girl, Anu.

    We are a half hour from Galway in the countryside so anyone expecting to be right in Galway city, we are not...! :)

    We have a small raised bed which I want to sow for the Autumn so anyone interested in digging a patch of soil is most welcome!

    Anu is a lot of fun and loves playing games, making stuff, painting, singing dancing,.,she is good fun.

    I work in radio journalism and holistic therapies and Anu goes to school five days a week. I would need someone to help with her after school and with housework. If you like cooking, even better!

    We love the outdoors and there are wonderful places here for walks, feeding horses, being by the sea or watching the stars. I speak Irish to Anu but she speaks fluent English too and you could learn plenty from her by playing with her.

    Anu is a very playful child, loves to laugh, learn and be active. I don't find her difficult as a child and I don't think you will either. She does art twice a week and is learning the violin. I'm not keen on her to be watching technology a lot ( at all if i could!) so the more time spent engaging with her the better.

    There is plenty of space here for walks, enjoying time in nature, by the sea etc. The Aran islands are nearby, with the ferryboat just 15 minutes away. If you're interested in Irish culture and love nature and the outdoors then this place is for you...

    Galway is a half an hour away and there is a bus going to and from there daily. Bus Eireann 424. Galway is a lively town full of buskers and an international population. You'll have a chance to get to know it.

    Please apply if you are someone who is relaxed, happy, sincere, energetic, clever, warm, enthusiastic and outgoing. You must love children and playing with them...

    We offer food and your own room and also free time to enjoy what Galway and the west of Ireland has to offer.
