    Cultural exchange and learning opportunites

    THIS IS A CULTURAL EXCHANGE.
    It is not to be confused with paid employment or remunerations.

    You will have an opportunity to learn about Irish culture and traditions, and gain work experience in the daily routines of running a Tourist Guest House doing Housekeeping and Reception duties.

    There are guided Historical Tours where you will learn about the History of Kinsale.

    Desmond Castle with the French Prison and Wine Museum is 1 minute from the Guest House.
    Charles Fort and James Fort are also within walking distance.

    There are irish Dancing classes, and Traditional Irish musicians and DJ's in the Pubs.

    Circa 400 years ago our house was the residence for the Officers of the Cork Garrison, and when the soldiers returned from the Battlefield they drew water from the well and retied to their huts in the garden.
    There are many books and brochures about the History of Kinsale and surrounding area.

    There are opportunities for sailing, water sports, horse riding, Yoga, Pilates, alternative therapies and many more..
