  • Description


    We would love to host a workaway who is willing to experience country and beach life in the sunny South East. We require a multitasking individual as we will be based between the Seaside Village of Dunmore East meters from the sea and at Joanstown Carrick-on-suir on a smallholding in the foothills of the Comeragh Mountains. Dunmore East is a really pretty coastal holiday village with all amenities, beach, walks, sailing, restaurants etc. 2/3 of your time will be in Joanstown 1/3 of your time will be spent in Dunmore East which is 40 minutes away by car from Joanstown. You will be given the use of a car so you may travel between both locations. Jonestown is rural and again very beautiful so the person must be comfortable with the slow pace of country life. There is amazing walking trails in the nearby Comeragh Mountains and along the river suir, someone interested in hiking would be very happy.
    We (Richard and Gillian) live in Dunmore East, my office is based from home so there will be company during the day in Dunmore East, my mum Gemma lives in Joanstown she is a very keen traveller who goes off the beaten track to the 4 corners of the world. When she is travelling you may be alone in Joanstown from time to time but only for a day or two, our wider family visit at weekends (including grandchildren).

  • Help


    Manily you will be asked to help with gardening, working in vegetable garden, polytunnel, some property maintenance, helping with a very small pony, some childcare helping with nieces and nephew. Sometimes when I go to meetings I ask to be driven so that I may keep working while we travel. So we need someone who is comfortable driving in Ireland so a full driving licence is essential and the person must be over 25 years of age for car insurance purposes.

  • Accommodation


    Own bedroom, we normally eat together in the evenings but there will be ingredients for breakfast, lunch and snacks etc so you may help yourself during the day. We like food/cookery so someone who shares this interest would be great but not essential.
