  • Description


    ENERGETIC AND MOTIVATED COUPLES WELCOME ONLY PLEASE to help in our large garden by the sea. If you like being outside and enjoying a beautiful environment this is a perfect place to be. We are renovating also at the moment so we would like help in the house with moving furniture and cleaning after the builders.
    If you don't have some experience of outdoor projects then this is probably not suitable for you. We would love anyone with skills especially carpentry or a knowledge of gardening. We don't live near a town so it's good if you like being in a remote location and enjoying nature.
    A good level of English is essential and we prefer Workaway's who are mature and well travelled.

    We live in a lovely place, by the sea but very private with our own jetty and boat and beaches all at the bottom of the garden. Both David and I have travelled a lot and lived in different countries and I volunteered in New Zealand and Australia so I know the benefits of doing this. My parents also had volunteers when I was growing up and that was the 1970's/80's when it was less usual! We love having people from other countries and showing them around and showing them Irish life......

    You can walk to Derrynane beach and the pub and in Caherdaniel, there is Irish music every Thursday night. Most people hitch to get around as public transport is not very regular but all our previous Workaway's have managed to see a lot while they've been here. If you have a car all the better!

    We are happy to give you lunch but you can eat breakfast and dinner in your apartment (where there is a kitchen) and we'll happily provide food. The weekends are free and we don't cook.

  • Help


    We welcome general help around the house and garden but only for a few hours a day. The help is suitable for couples as we don’t have other Workaways and it can also be physically demanding.

  • Accommodation


    We have a room with a kitchen and ensuite bathroom in a separate building from us. Lovely view and very comfortable. We can't take families. We would like couples or 2 friends travelling together(there is only one double bed but we can provide a blow up bed as well).

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There are lots of things to do locally although it is challenging without a car. The beach is nearby , horse riding is available walking and exploring.......There are buses to Killarney (from Waterville) where there is a train station to Dublin, Cork etc.

    We are non smokers but love food, eating well is v important. I am a vegetarian.

    We are tidy and like to be busy but also enjoy walking our dog and enjoying where we live. The best months to come are between April to October. We have no work in the winter months.
