  • Description


    Hi, I have a Pony Trekking & Therapeutic riding centre near Dungarvan in Co Waterford. I am looking for help looking after ponies, feeding, bringing them in from fields, tacking up, grooming, leading etc.

    Being able to ride and experience with horses is essential.

    We are 15 mins from towns of Dungarvan in Co Waterford & Youghal in Co Cork. We are about a half an hours walk to the beach, it is very important that you like the countryside and are happy working with horses.

    This is a great opportunity to ride in the scenic irish country side close to beaches. The host is vegetarian and cooks vegetarian food. We speak native irish and english to improve your language skills. It is a great base for travelling around Ireland with plenty of free time for your adventures.

    Helpers can horse ride during their time off, cycle and go to the beach. It is possible to cycle to the nearest village about 7 km away. There is a local bus service to the nearest town , about 12km away. It’s v cheap, only €1 to travel on bus. . We are between 2 cities, Cork & Waterford, it is possible to get a bus there in our local town. Workaway’s usually get from Saturday evening until Tuesday off so a long weekend every weekend where you can head off and make the most of your Irish visit. This can vary during the winter months but other days will be allowed mid week in lieu of Sunday if it’s necessary to work.
