  • Description


    We are a family looking for someone to come and help look after our kids for the summer months. We have 2 school going children aged 12 years (boy) and 13 years (girl) who will be 14 in September. My husband & I both work outside of the home and we are looking for company for the kids during the summer months. Both kids are very happy, fun loving. We live in a detached house with a large garden in Ballycotton, Co. Cork, which has beautiful views of the sea. Ballycotton is a lovely fishing village that has lots of small beaches. It also has a wonderful Cliff walk that over looks the ocean, which is a big tourist attraction. It has a hotel, 4 pubs & a deli/cafe. The large town of Midleton is only a 20 minute drive away & Cork City is 45 minutes drive away.

    Ballycotton & East Cork is a beautifully area to visit with lots to do, like visit the Ballycotton Light House Island (where you go inside the Lighthouse on a tour), take the Jameson Distillery tour (where they make Jameson whiskey), take a tour of The Clock Tower in Youghal or visit Cobh where the Titanic sailed from on her last journey.
    As well as learning about Irish history, they would get to see how Irish families live, communicate, what types of food we eat, while improving their English language skills.

    We are looking for a committed, independent, friendly & very responsible person, who has a sense of humour & will fit into the family easily. It is important to us that they are honest & respectful, as well as a non smoker. We would like someone who will join our family & bond like big sister with our children. Over the years we have made many friends through helper experiences from countries such as Germany, Czech Republic and Poland and they are still visiting with our family. It is very important to us to have someone who has a very happy & positive nature.
    Main help welcomed will be caring for the children & to prepare light meals for them, such as breakfast or lunch and being with them while we are at work. Helping prepare dinner would also be appreciated. Helping around the house will be asked, as everyone helps, so it's not all left to one person to do. It is very important to us to have someone who has ideas for fun things to do with the children whilst we are at work - dedicated to going for walks/to the beach, reading, pier jumping/swimming etc. The kids love playing games on their tablets & X-box & watch movies also, as sometimes it rains, so it's not always possible to be outside.
