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.
