I am an old man of 75 years old. I live alone here in a beautiful area of West Cork for 40 years. That time has been shared between here and California. I know many people in this area. It's a really quiet place to be. It's easy to walk around and has a beautiful landscape. Durrus is a small village with a grocery, a few nice restaurants and pubs. I enjoy the socializing in the pubs sometimes.

A young Belgium traveller I met has stayed a few nights with HelpX people around the area and really enjoyed it.

With my age, it's difficult to keep everything done around the house. I try my best to keep this place nice, but there is so much to do! There are many things I can't do anymore. There is some work to do around the house such as housekeeping, cooking, painting, carpentry, gardening, plumbing, etc.. I don't ask for too much of your time working and you are free to think about what you'd like to do. I will make a list with prior things to do, depending on your abilities or interests.

Please tell me some good travels adventure (I can't travel too much anymore), some stories, if you have some good discussions, if you can cook well that would be wonderful! (We could go to Bantry sometimes for shopping). I enjoy having people around and I can show you some sights with my car.

I have internet at my home. You can e-mail me and notify me that way.
The best way to contact me is to contact my home phone.
1.Please let the phone ring 10 times.

2. Tell me your contact phone number and when you are interested in staying.

You are welcome in my house. You could stay for a week or a month if you'd like. I have many books you can read during your stay. I live in a very quiet and beautiful place.
