LAST MINUTE IMMEDIATE SHORT TERM AVAILABILITY : Early September -DIY basic skills a plus!

I rent out rooms / apartment to tourists and language students visiting Dublin and need someone to help a little with cleaning, meeting guests, basic maintenance etc ... the hours would be flexible and around 15-25 hours a week - in return i offer accommodation, basic food, free high-speed wifi, use of bicycle and a friendly welcome!

Am looking for someone now - currently I have a short opening in early September . As accommodation is limited, I am only looking for ONE helper at a time ... no couples or friends - sorry :)

Having basic DIY or home maintenance skills an advantage :)

I like people to be friendly, engaging and flexible, sociable and outgoing, able to make new friends - I promise the same in return :)

I am located in Dublin city centre and am said to be a pretty relaxed guy to live with. I am also happy to show you my city and if you want to help you a little with your english as I've taught english as a foreign language before! I have hosted many couchsurfers and can share with you my profile ... :) I am also happy to be flexible with time off so you can explore Dublin and indeed further afield with days off etc - my situation is a good base to explore Ireland!

I love technology / social media, movies, photography ( always trying to improve ;) ) , travelling, am learning to swim (lifeguards or swimming coaches especially welcome :) ), and live music especially acoustic rock ... for me, most importantly good people :)

For me flexibility and willingness to engage would be an important attribute for any helper :) I try to be flexible and give people the maximum freedom to follow their own interests - however regular time commitments like a work or study schedule may not suit the varied time commitments needed in helping - let's chat more about it :) Also, Dublin is a very sociable city and I encourage helpers to create a network of friends - it is helpful to have some resources to fund yourself after the basic food I offer, (in line with the pretty easy help given by you to me) as having a pint or two of Guinness is a good thing for any visitor to Dublin as you improve your English! Basically I want someone who is active and can make new friends in a very friendly city taking advantage of a lot of free time, living in a very good city-centre location - someone who has their own resources to fund a social life and to live an active life rather than stay in all the time surfing the net .... :)

Please have fully completed profile with pics - please reply by message here, giving as much information as possible especially with particular regard to my proposal - tell my why you think we would be a good fit - this will help me greatly as I have received many messages from people looking for just a few places :) Looking forward to hearing from you - we can link up then further on facebook chat (please add me fully there) .... talk to you soon!

NOTE: If you send me just a solely cut and paste message it will probably result in a similar type reply if any at all ... :)
