I returned home to Ireland three years ago - after living in Canada for 30 years, mainly in Toronto.
I work on social justice issues.
I like to stay places where I can feel at home, rather than a tourist. I enjoy walking around cities, hanging out in cafes, visiting art galleries, finding great restaurants that are not too fancy or expensive.
I need to stay places that are quiet at night, where I won't be kept awake by noisy traffic, or bars that stay open late.
I'm a really clean and tidy guest - and very responsible about taking care of other people's property.
