    We enjoy family experiences and would welcome any work away to enjoy these with us.

  • Help


    Lorraine the mum would like to free up some time to do more work with her online business so is looking for a work away to help out with housekeeping, childminding and some basic computer work as she works from home.
    General maintenance may include painting but nothing heavy duty as Barry can take care of it.
    I would like someone who has a drivers licence as we live in the countryside but not essential.

    What else ...

    As we are living in the countryside 30 minutes drive from Limerick city centre where there is everything you could want or need. Lorraine goes into town 3-4 times per week so lots of opportunity to explore the city, go to cinema, shopping, swimming, sports etc.
    Nearest town is 4 miles away and we have bicycles which work away is free to use. if they present with a full drivers licence we can discuss access to drive a car.
