  • Description


    We are looking for a workaway couple to help with our Dublin project from October through to May.

    We are renovating our 150 year old house in Dublin city centre and need general help preparing the site (this would involve lifting and material handling, digging and moving dirt, clean and clear debris, provide assistance to contractors (i.e. craft workers, electricians, painters) as needed. We are also looking for some inspirational company for our children for a few hours after school.

    Our family (2 adults/2 children) intends to live in a cabin we have built in the garden. A room will be available in the main house for a workaway couple. Let me know ASAP if you are interested and we can arrange a skype.

    We look forward to hearing from you!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are always looking to share what we know and have learnt on our journey through life, and learn from others, and we see the opportunity of hosting workawayers as a really valuable cultural and work exchange - so, lots to learn.... Over the past 6 months we constructed a 25m sq. Timber frame cabin with help from workaways and had a fantastic experience. We even went on to employ one of the workaways who stayed with us as a construction worker for another project.

  • Help
