  • Description


    My husband and I are working parents of 5 small children. We live in Adrigole which is a small rural village on the beautiful Beara Peninsula. We are looking for some help at home with the family and housework. Life on the Beara Peninsula is quiet. In Adrigole itself there are 2 pubs, 1 shop, 1 coffee shop and craft shop, 1 church, 1 football pitch and a kayaking centre. We live right by the sea, so swimming is popular in the summer also. Nearby is the seaside town of Castletownbere to the west and the village of Glengarriff to the east. Both areas have supermarkets and more things to see and do. We live on the main road so the buses pass our door making it easy to get around

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have separate accommodation next door to our home for you to stay and have your own space and independence. We are on a main bus route and only 10km or so from the nearest town of Castletownbere. While working with our family you will learn what it is to manage a large small family. As our eldest child has started primary school we are teaching him to speak Irish and so can teach our visitors a cupla focal also! We have a garden which we lovingly tend to each summer and would love to teach someone to care for it also.
