    What else ...

    Tralee is 9km from our home and there is a community bus available a couple times a day. Tralee has regular bus and train services to Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway. Killarney and the National Park are easily accessible from Tralee by bus and there are many beautiful hikes in the National Park. We know the area very well and would be happy to assist our helper with plans for their days off. We are active and do lots of hiking when time permits. We have recently visited New Zealand, Hong Kong and Australia and we also climbed Kilimanjaro, and Machu Picchu in Peru. We have just returned from Vietnam and Cambodia and are hoping to visit Berlin and Cuba this year. We love to do marathons and cycle. We have 5 children although only 2 are living here now. The others are grown up and living in New Zealand and Vietnam. We enjoy meeting people and are interested in different cultures.
