My time at Derrybawn was one of the most incredible experiences of my life! I learned so much from Andrew and his family, not only about sustainability and carpentry but about Irish culture and life in general. I gained so many new skills like making fires, cutting wood, building furniture and organizing logistics. The property itself is breathtaking, so many options for nature exploration and hiking. It's a truly welcoming vibe between Andrew's family and the other volunteers, we all became one cohesive unit working together to achieve the common goal of sustainability. Thank you Andrew!

A great and very enriching experience. We have learned to cut wood and light fires, in addition to the opportunity to carry out a kitchen. Located in the beautiful natural park of Wicklow Mountains, with a lovely family. Thank you very much for the hospitality

I enjoyed my stay here in DB I felt it was very rewarding for the summers end, I learned great new things and I would recommend DB for people willing to work and have fun

Ambiance was really nice, even though you might feel lonely in this secluded place. I was first told it was supposed to be an eco village, but I discovered later that the "village" is actually accommodations made for guests, not residents. A bit disappointed by the whole project, but it was still good to feel I was useful.
