  • Description


    Hi, I'm a full time working Mum. I have 3 kids, aged 19, 15 & 8 years old. My eldest is about to move abroad to study. We have a dog and two cats who live in the house with us and we also have a hen. We live in the beautiful village of Eyeries right by the sea. It is very peaceful and picturesque here and we like outdoor pursuits such as swimming, kayaking, hillwalking, climbing and cycling.
    We have a big house and garden including a greenhouse and vegetable patch. We are just a 5 minute walk from the sea.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The workawayer will get to experience life in an unspoilt area of Ireland. We live in a unique area in that we have mountains right by the sea. It's a great place for people who love the outdoors and very popular with hillwalkers. The workawayer is welcome to use my kayak and/or bicycle. I am happy to help anybody trying to learn the English language.
    In many ways it is as if time stood still here on the Beara Peninsula and farming and fishing are still the main way of life.

  • Help


    I am looking for help with housework and gardening mainly, also occasional child minding.
    It would be great if you had a full driver's licence in case I need help with school runs.
    Ours is a non-smoking household but smokers are welcome as long as they don't smoke in the house:)

    You can see our house in the photos. It is located just outside the village of Eyeries very close to the sea.
    You will have your own bedroom in our house and you can choose to either eat with us or cook for yourself as you wish. We have central heating, wifi etc, it is a warm & comfortable home.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You can spend your time off as you wish: socialising, sports, hobbies etc. You will have weekends off and are welcome to use my bike or kayak. There are other workawayers living in the area also. We are living right on the Beara Way so anybody who loves going for walks will be very happy here. There are shops and pubs in Eyeries and the nearest town is only 10 minutes away. Pebbly beaches are only a short walk from the house. Sandy beaches can be reached by car.
