Enjoy the beauty of West Cork with its scenic walks, rugged coastline, festivals and lots more while helping out with childcare of our two boys (2yrs and 5 yrs). We are based on a family farm and farmhouse cheese making business. There is the possibility of further work on the farm, organic gardening and cheese-making if desired. There's always lots going on while also the opportunity to enjoy the peace and beauty of our rural setting.
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
There's the opportunity to learn about how a small family business functions. We can offer the opportunity to learn a bit about Cheese making for those who have interest. We are a musical family, we love the outdoors and enjoy meeting new people and learning about their lives.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
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.
Our guests would have their own large bedroom with comfy bed, seating area, WiFi, kettle and microwave on the ground floor of the family home. Bedroom has double doors to the garden and their own patio and outdoor seating. The family bathroom and separate shower room are on the ground floor and will be shared. Guests will eat with the family but are welcome to cook for themselves if preferred.
Our house is located on the popular Sheep's Head Way walking route. Many visitors come to our area to trek this route that can be accessed directly from our farm. West Cork has many attractions as well as music, literary and food festivals throughout the summer.
