  • Description


    We (my partner and I) are looking for a responsible mature female (preferably) to help look after our darling little girl. Our little girl was 2 years on the 25th of June so a person who is used to dealing with young children would be ideal. Don't worry tho because of one of us will be in the house at the same time if needed.

    Our 3 bedroomed house is 5 minutes walk away from the Galway city so no transport is required. Galway is an ideal spot for a young person and there is plenty of opportunities to learn languages, travel to other cities and meet other young people.

    I am Irish and staying in our home would allow you to experience Irish culture and some cuisine (bacon and cabbage). I travel frequently to my parents home in Cork and would encourage our visitor to experience a real Irish mammy. Galway city is a university city so there is many oppertunities to study languages and meet other young people.

  • Accommodation


    The Workawayer that will stay with us will have their own bedroom. They will not be under pressure to clean their room or contribute to housework (unless they feel the need to). I love cooking with fresh ingredients so the fridge should be stocked. The workawayer may cook for themselves (and clean up after themselves) or occassionally my cook for us ( I love tasting new cultures!) We do order in too occasionally.

    You will have access to a laptop which you can use at your leisure.
    There is so much to see in Galway - including escape rooms, walking tours and haunted tours. But there are also tours to take you to see tourist spots nearby i.e in Clare the cliffs of Mohair and the aran islands.
    Travel around Ireland is cheap and easy. We are within walking distance of bus services that run direct to Cork, Limerick and Dublin. Dublin is 2.5 hours from Galway. You will be free Wednesday evening which allows you 4 days to spend sightseeing these cities.
