Hey, I'm Jessie!
Carhoogarriff, Skibbereen, West Cork, Ireland · Member since May 2012

I'm a full-time student, part-time web designer, and soon to be full-time tour guide. I'm well traveled,and lived in Italy and France for 13 years before deciding to come back to raise my children in this lovely part of the world. Now that they have left the nest, I have started studying a national qualification in Tour guiding I have a beautiful home and would like to share it with people who enjoy traveling and experiencing new cultures, who love beautiful scenery and wildlife, good food, good company and good conversation. I speak fluent French and Italian, and some Spanish. As I taught English abroad for 13 years, I can organise languages classes during your stay, if you require them.

I take wwoofers into my home at times over the summer, and do house exchanges. (Italy/France/ Spain).I love Galicia but also Madrid, it's so civilized! I am part of the Clonakilty favour exchange and believe that we can all help each other out in these times of austerity . I have a degree in Archaeology and love everything got to do with heritage. I am a qualified local tour guide and have also taken tours on National trips. I regularly do Traditional French Dancing, have done swing dancing, belly dancing and Irish dancing in the past as well as a couple of years' salsa. I like nothing more than a proper singsong and have sung in everything from poly-symphonic choirs to blues bands and rock bands.
Airbnb is a new venture for me, I'm willing to have people here while I am here mostly, but can rent out the whole house on occasion. I love Mediterranean food and vegetarian food in particular, but I will try anything! I do believe in a healthy breakfast (mine includes spirulina!) but if cappuccino is your thing, that can be accommodated!
