Hi.. I have a warm, south-facing half acre, designed using permaculture principles, with a large organic garden, composting loo, fruit trees, ponds and an artesian well. I live in a wooden cabin and there is a caravan with basic cooking facilities, electricity and a wood-burning stove.

This is the heart of West Cork, so there is plenty of clean air, mountains and rivers. The nearest town is 7 miles away and has good buses if you want to explore. I usually go out once or twice a week to local markets and you're welcome to come along.

I'm an English native and TEFL trained, so if you're coming to improve your English, this is a good spot.

I'm not commercial, so there's no set time-table, but I do like to keep weekends free if possible. Work is relaxed and focused around the weather and seasons. General jobs include gardening.. planting, weeding, watering and general maintenance.. painting, wooding etc.

The food is basically vegetarian, local and organic if possible, with plenty of fish. In summer it's fresh from the garden.

This is the first time I've put my site up since August 2013 because a reference described my place as dirty and with not enough food! I was so upset I took this page down, I still don't understand the comment. I've had so many people stay here (you can read their remarks in the visitors book), and have had nothing but compliments. All I can think of is that this place has no sugar or processed foods of ANY kind, so if you're used to sweets, cakes, biscuits etc. you might miss that. Also this is a rural, down-to-earth place. If you want pristine hotel standards this is not for you, but if you don't mind spiders, grass on the floor and lighting a fire you'll enjoy you're stay

My daughters and I have always had great experiences with helpx in the past. Right now I'm recovering from a broken leg and could really do with some help.
Feel free to contact me, and I look forwards to hearing from you :)
