  • Description

    Description

    We are looking for someone to help with Connemara Ponies and child care as we run a small Equestrian Centre on the island of Inishbofin and have two young children. Volunteers with experience in childcare and equestrianism are most welcome. We have had many volunteers over the years stay for a month and wished they had more time on Inishbofin. Many volunteers that have stayed longer (up to five months!) have said how quickly the time flies here on the island. We have also had many volunteers back for second visits. We recommend a longer stay than a month if possible. Confidence and experience is essential in working and riding the ponies but you must also be comfortable minding children.

    There is plenty to see and explore on the island and If you feel like seeing some of the rest of Ireland the ferry has three regular sailings a day. You can be on the mainland in 30 minutes with a bus service from Cleggan village straight to Galway City.
