I've lived in italy for 15 years, now I am back and forward, I am a designer by trade, product, service, visual and work between both places... In Ireland I live in a big old family house, that always needs maintenance ... slowly slowly cleaning it up around the edges ... it has been home to many great faces and parties... I have family close by, the home has its doors open pretty much all the time. Seems in the middle of nowhere, but quite close to dublin Airport and city centre 25kms...

it a lovely part of the world, quite secluded, 2km from village with the famous Seamus Ennis centre... BBQs, long lunches... not far from dublin city centre 25km ...
I have spent 15 years in italy, so I cook allot of italian, this is coupled with having the best meat in the world... there is a little vegetable garden, please add to the garden, bring seeds from your country ! There are pea's, artichokes and lettuce... all welcome.
There is always something to do, I want to paint/decorate a few rooms in the home... make furniture, painting (interior exterior), walls, windows, roofs, garden, fencing, chopping logs, fixing, cleaning sheds... BBQs, and other things may happen or fall in the mean time... ... I work as a free-lance designer, and generally pitching work regulary - I often need help in graphics and motion graphics projects.

The home has 4 large bedrooms, 2 are free most of the time, 1 is a work in progress.. The kitchen is open, I generally eat 2 times a day, you can have full use of kitchen and I will provide food, we can eat together, normally twice a week, my sisters with their family's come for dinner or sunday lunch, plenty of culture to be had just meeting them and their crazy children... ...
time off can be fun, having a walk in the fields... You can walk, drive or cycle to the nearest village, Naul, the Seamus Ennis centre has cultural events, concerts, Donavan Played summer, cinema club, and many Irish music sessions. A little further is the coast, the town of Ballbriggan, where you can get a train alone the coast to city centre, there are many coastal towns on route for day trips, Skerries, Malahide, Howth... good fish alone here...
There is plenty of room in the house, guests may invite friends with respect to stay over the odd night...
