  • Help


    We have two active boys aged 2 and 5 who will be on school holidays. We have a large garden and family farm. The boys love the outdoors. We're 5km to the sea and village with shop, post office, pubs, church. We're 12 km from Bantry town with cinema, shops, restaurants, pubs etc. We need help caring for and entertaining the children during the day while mother is working at cheese making 1km away. Father works in the city Mon-Thurs. There will be light house work (tidying, clothes washing, preparing lunches) as well as lots of fun to be had with two friendly boys who love meeting new people.
