    Description

    Malcolm and I are seeking 2 people to stay approximately 2 weeks with us.

    We have an exciting opportunity for the right pair to experience an amazing experience on an island in County Galway.

    The time will be spent on an island on Lough Corrib to help build a new shed at our 200 year old fishing lodge. It is truly a beautiful house and you will step back in time.. No electricity or running water in the house, and living by candle light and cooking on an open fire are all part of this experience. If washing in the lake and taking a sauna inspires you you will adore this place! This is a unique opportunity to live off grid in a lovely location for 2 weeks.. The work is physical, and a little heavy, but rewarding, and the surroundings are beautiful.


    Malcolm and I both work in Galway during the week but will join you at the weekends. We are very friendly hosts and really like to get to know our volunteers..
    We will supply all food for your stay.. You will need to cook for yourselves during the week and I will cook at weekends.. The working day varies according to the weather, but if you can aim to offer us about 5 hours a day, 5 days a week we will be delighted. All transport to and from the island will be arranged by us..

    This volunteering position is for out doorsey and hardy types and for those who don't mind being the only inhabitants on the island apart from a visit from a wonderful farmer once a day. Might suit a couple or two male friends.

    So guys, this is an amazingly fun opportunity for the right people. You will really enjoy meeting us and experiencing life as it was a hundred years ago. We really look forward to hearing from you :)
