I have many years experience of hosting guest from all over the world in my home and I enjoy creating a pleasant environment for my guests. I am working in a school for children with special needs as a classroom assistant. My school is great and I love the long holidays! I am the mother 3 adult children who have now left home - hence all the spare bedrooms! I love to spend time with my family and friends, eating or chatting. I enjoy cooking (vegetarian), gardening, arts and crafts. I am interested in the arts and I am a volunteer guide in one of Dublin's cultural art museums. I love the movies and especially enjoy going to one of the two art house cinemas that we have in the city. I walk a lot and do a bit of cycling, swimming and dance classes. I have had some great trips abroad -Cuba been among the most memorable. Last year I went to South Africa to work as a volunteer in a township - an amazing experience.
