  • Description

    Description

    Hello! We are a family of four living on the lovely island of Inishbofin. We have two bright and beautiful young boys, aged 7 and 9 years old.

    We have a small organic vegetable garden and a flock of around 50 sheep.

    Our home is located at the Western end of the island, just around the corner from a pub/restaurant and beside one of the most picturesque walks on Inishbofin.

    In July and August, we are really busy with our foodtruck business so we are looking for a couple or two friends to help us in our home. The work would consist of cooking family meals, light housework, hanging out with our boys and some gardening.

    In general we are looking for people who have some life experience and we prefer people who are over 22 years of age.

    Needless to say, we require a strong work ethic, a sense of humour, kindness, and patience. All things we try to maintain ourselves.

    If you are interested in the above opportunity, please contact us. All references are welcome.

    Due to covid 19, we are only accepting people who are fully vaccinated.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Inishbofin is well connected to the mainland so volunteers can go to nearby towns such as Clifden and Galway on days off. Inishbofin is also a great place for beautiful walks, cycling, and just relaxing by the seaside.
