Please note that I do NOT run a language school and if you do not make the effort to write an individual message to a potential host in English indicating that you have actually read their profile then do not expect a reply. Sorry but I get so many copied and pasted messages, some in other languages, that I am considering giving Worldpackers the boot! The house is comfortable and a volunteer will have their own room, use of the facilities of the house including the kitchen, bathroom and a separate shower room. A bike is available for exploring the surrounding West Cork countryside which is beautiful. The sea at Dunmanus Bay is a ten minute walk away, the local villages are Schull, Ballydehob and Durrus and the nearest market towns are Bantry and Skibbereen.

I am a sculptor and qualified art teacher and also a music teacher (flute and sax) for the county music school. There is a very good grand piano in the house, so if you do play you can take advantage. I also run a business specialising in antique kilim rugs and textiles. Anyone who has artistic or musical inclinations may feel particularly at home here, as may those with an interest in or practice of yoga, Buddhism and meditation. I am happy to show volunteers around the area, answer any questions and offer advice as needed.

I learnt lots of things in almost two months. Nature around is wonderful, I really enjoyed the house and garden too, and spent many nights looking at amazing sunsets. Do not hesitate asking Hugh to repeat and precise something when is explaining a task, because he sometimes goes fast and consider you were not listening if you did something wrong or did not understand everything (not in terms of english, but in terms of what is expected from you) . However, you are quite free to organize your schedule as you like and this is great!




It's hard to describe the gratitude I feel for having had my first volunteer experience here!

Hugh is an incredible guy, big-hearted, patient and very good-humored.

The tasks were super quiet to be done, the surrounding landscape is beautiful and Hugh is super flexible with the schedules,

We listen to good music all the time, we eat really well, have fun and count a lot of hot stars on open day. I will not forget the days I spent here, surely I recommend you to have this experience here as well.

Gratitude for everything!
