Hello! We live in the beautiful Kinsale, by the sea in County Cork, Ireland. Lovely place where to live, surrounded by nature and lots of lovely people, a beautiful community. Myself (Marcus) and my wife (Susie) with our two kids, Arran and Isaac
The au pair that we are looking for is someone who would be good with children. Our eldest (Arran) is going into Fourth class (he's 10) and he loves to read, play chess, art, Lego and having chats. The little one (Isaac) is starting Senior Infants in September (he'll be 6 in a few months) and he is a live wire, chatty and playful character who always likes to entertain (and loves being entertained!) Both kids are pretty good helping with house chores and we always like to encourage this so that they learn to be helpful. During the week Marcus works all the time, sometimes touring with his theatre company, sometimes working from the city at the office. Susie teaches some Yoga and Baby Massage Classes a few days a week. Susie had recently a back trauma and she is currently recovering from it. This means she needs help with house tasks and childminding.
The au pair would have at times to walk the kids to school (if you have a full driving license we might consider adding you to the insurance of one of our cars so you can drive them on rainy days). The au pair will also have to cook dinners some evenings and some nights putting the kids to bed. During days, both kids are in school till 3pm. Susie is studying a degree in Homeopathy so she needs some time during the days to study.
There are loads of au pairs for company in the surrounding area , au pairs meet up in the town every Saturday. If you like sports or physical activities our town is full of possibilities for you. We'd like to find someone active, outgoing, curious, but at the same time easygoing and able to relax and enjoy the time! Is there a person like that out there? We hope so!
