  • Description


    We own a B&B Accommodation, wholefood Restaurant specialising in Vegetarian and special diets, arts centre and venue for workshops.
    We are close to the beautiful Slieve Mish Mountains and 6 miles from blue flag beach Inch Strand, central to Dingle, Tralee & Killarney and Kerry Airport ideally situated for hiking,surfing and sightseeing.
    The work is in the garden and learning to cook vegan and gluten free. sometimes there is painting and simple maintenance jobs.
    You will learn cookery and be able to participate in creating garden ventures. If we are busy in the restaurant we expect you to help out with dishes etc and you will learn how to prep and set up for service.
    The garden is big and very fruitful and weeding is always an option. some days can be longer than others, but we give two full days free so you can explore the area. Sleeping is mainly dorm style and we have around four helpers, sometimes more in the high season. Food is vegetarian, whole food and mainly organic we cater for vegans and gluten free diets. we will pick you up from Castlemaine and drop you for buses on your free days. we prefer a 2 month stay. we are happy to help with English study if required.
    please keep emails to the point as we have a large volume to reply. Oh we have pets and we are rural plus we are non smoking.

  • Accommodation


    Mainly a dorm, sometimes a gypsy caravan or a small wooden garden chalet. there is a domestic kitchen / living room for family and helpers, and lovely spots in the garden for eating and chatting. winter is very different to summer as the restaurant is mainly closed and it is quieter.
