    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As English language professionals, we are offering an exchange of language and cultural tours of Dublin and the surrounding countryside. We ensure that all of our Workaway people benefit from a language class with us, if they would like one, and we have found that this really helps them with their English language acquisition. If you are interested in exploring Ireland, we can tell you about our favourite places. We are responsive hosts and, if opportunities for Workaway people become available at the last-minute, we are happy to post these.

  • Help


    We would love some help with light gardening and household maintenance (painting, sanding etc). Every year we choose a different project to do. Our Workaway people are never expected to do jobs that we will not do.
