  • Description


    Hello! We are a family of four living on the lovely island of Inishbofin. We have two bright and beautiful young boys, aged 9 and 11 years old.

    We have a flock of around 50 sheep and just recently became owners of two border collie puppies.

    Our home is located at the Western end of the island, just around the corner from a pub/restaurant and beside one of the most picturesque walks on Inishbofin.

  • Help


    From early May until the end of September, we are really busy with our foodtruck business so we are looking for a couple or two friends to help us in our home. The work would consist of cooking family meals, light housework, playing soccer with our boys, taking the dogs for walks and some gardening.

    In general we are looking for people who have some life experience and we prefer people who are over 22 years of age.

    Needless to say, we require a strong work ethic, a sense of humour, kindness, and patience. All things we try to maintain ourselves.

    If you are interested in the above opportunity, please contact us. All references are welcome.
