Hi there! My name is Darragh I’m 35 years old and live in a typical 200 year old Irish cottage in Kerry over looking the Atlantic Ocean on the Wild Atlantic way. I am heavily involved in renewable electricity production and operate a portfolio of renewable energy power stations in the West Cork and Kerry mountains. I also own a small organic farm around my house and keep rare breed sheep and Aylesbury ducks. My land runs down to the Wild Atlantic Ocean where it is possible to Swim, Boat or Fish on a private Pier.
I am just undertaking building a 200m2 PollyTunnel for growing vegetables, this is a live project as I write this (July 2020). EDIT - the tunnel is now built (JAN 2021) and Im now looking for help this summer with cultivating Organic Berries, Fruit and Vegetables for self consumption. Im experimenting allot with different Permaculture methods and I can teach what I have learned so far on this Journey.
I also have just restored a separate cottage next to my house to a very high rustic standard and can provide a very nice separate place to stay.
I am looking for people to help with the tunnel project and help out maintaining animals and the land in general. I love to cook for people and eat almost exclusively an organic diet.
I also enjoy brewing lots of hedge row sparkling wines, beers and ciders depending on the seasons. I have been doing this for over 10 years and would be happy to share knowledge and know how of how to complete the fermentation process.
I expect help for a few hours a day, I live 5Km from the town of Kenmare which is a vibrant little town known for the food and music scene. I can provide an electric bicycle if you like for you to travel to town of explore the local area.
My little farm is not a commercial business and all produce is consumed locally on site throughout the year. Everything here is for self consumption!
I’ve big plans for some new ideas I’m working on for next year so hopefully I can available of the help of more workaways going forward into the future!

I’m very easy going and love meeting new people and learning about different cultures.
I would like light farm help, gardening and many other small tasks like playing with my dog and gathering produce. Would also love to learn more about cooking from other cultures.
