    Currently we are looking for 1 person to mainly help with child care - experience with young children is a must. We live in a very rural location just over an hour south of Dublin. We are a couple (one Irish, one American) with a 5 year old son, 2 dogs and 2 cats living on 1 acre in a forest. We also have a foreign exchange student from Germany living with us during the school year and attending the local secondary school. We enjoy getting to know people from other countries. We have been hosting workawayers for the past 4 years and have found it to be a good experience. Unfortunately, we can only host one person at a time.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We have both traveled for work and pleasure, we are from different countries/cultures/backgrounds and have lived in foreign countries. We have hosted about 30 workawayers from around the world and enjoy sharing experiences, language, cooking & world views. We also have very diverse skills and are happy to share - music, fashion, woodworking, gardening, tea blending, teaching, beer brewing...

    Generally, we are looking for someone to help with minding our young son. He sometimes has school in the morning and you would watch him in the afternoons, otherwise you would be with him for the whole day, 3 days per week. He is active, imaginative, sensitive and loves the outdoors. Colm is a brewer in a local craft brewery (after many years as a furniture maker and drummer) and Mico was a fashion designer and now works as an events planner. You may also help with some housekeeping, gardening or dog walking, if you'd like. There will also be general bits around the house, as in any family environment. If you like a rural location, we are in a lovely spot for walks and are about 1/2 hour drive to the sea or to the mountains. We are in town a few times each week and up to Dublin sometimes and you would often be able to go with us. There is limited local public transport, but buses (to Dublin or Wexford) are a 10 minute drive away and we are happy to drop you there. We mostly cook vegetarian meals, with fish or meat as a side dish. We have veggies and meat eaters in the household.

  • Alojamiento


    You would have your own room with own bathroom. We have a large house outside of a small village. Non-smoking volunteers only, please. If we have a second workawayer (if there is overlap of a few days), you will share a bathroom.

    Colm is also a drummer, so music is an important feature in our lives. We are in a very quiet, rural environment, so if you are looking for an interesting social life, you won't find it here. If you are looking for a bit of quiet and relaxation with a nice family in a beautiful part of the countryside, then you may enjoy it here. You will generally have weekends off to relax or travel as you wish.
