    Description

    I am Greek and I have lived in 5 countries - UK, Greece, Australia, Ecuador and now Ireland. I have a 6 year old son who was born in Ecuador and speaks both Greek and English. I also have 2 beautiful ragdoll cats and a golden retriever puppy as well as chicken, all part of our family.
    I am an entrepreneur, highly educated, managing my own business, living in a large country house in Ireland on 1 acre of land next to a small river, providing all comforts for workawayers (gym, sauna, jacuzzi, home theatre) to enjoy and help with the house, garden and DIY projects.
    Learning opportunities as well as possible paid working time in the areas of management, digital marketing, entrepreneurship, could also be an possibility.

    I live in a beautiful part of the Irish countryside in the tiny village of Timolin, County Kildare. You would have the opportunity to experience semi-rural life, while being just a short distance from nearby historic villages and towns, such as Athy, Baltinglass and Carlow, all of which have many sites of interest to visitors from castles to prehistoric monuments, museums, and outdoor pursuits. At the same time, we are just a 50 minute drive to Dublin, and there is much to explore there.
    I speak Greek (native) and English, and I have been a university professor for more than 15 years, currently a successful entrepreneur, with a BSc, MSc, PhD and MBA. I Am happy to help with language learning as well as entrepreneurship, management, marketing and running your own business,

    What else ...

    The village of Timolin is a short 12 minute drive to the historic town of Athy. There is a train station there, where you can get a 45-minute train to Dublin. We'd be happy to drop you at Athy or other nearby towns like Baltinglass or Carlow. Within half an hour is also Blessington Lake, a popular place for tourism, and Wicklow mountains.
