Volunteer must be friendly, a non smoker, likes dogs and the outdoor life as we live in the countryside surrounded by nature, forestry and close to the beach. We have 2 private bedroom options depending on availability, access to our home gym and billiards room, outdoor pool (during summer) and our lovely garden lounge area.

Oh, how I could go on and on, so I will try to make this brief. Being here for five weeks truly gave me a new perspective and lease on life! Prem and Peter, you are absolutely amazing people! Thank you so much for welcoming me into your home. To any future backpackers, do not hesitate to apply here. You will be treated with kindness and respect. The work hours were great, and I was able to see so much of Ireland while I was here. Prem was super flexible as well. Wonderful communication, the boys are so, so sweet, and the FOOD. Omg, I'm going to miss the amazing homemade currys! Lots of love <3

Absolutely fantastic experience. The family is truly great and very well hearted. Prem and Peter are always making sure you're having a good time. Tristan's always up for playing and talking, he's an amazing kid, and Heath is a sweetheart! Tasks are nothing you wouldn't do at your own home and with your own family. You get your own private room with bathroom and food is provided. I can only recommend them and actually I'd love to come back in the future.

This month at the home was just amazing. I had the chance to get to know the culture and travel the whole country! I am truly going to miss the kids, the dogs, the house, the forests... Thank you to Prem and Peter for making this possible. They have been the kindest, most-welcoming family I have ever known. This was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life! 💚

I had a truly wonderful time. This was my first work exchange experience and I couldn't have asked for a better time— Prem, Peter, and the boys, were welcoming and kind from the get go; I felt completely, literally, always at home. Communication was clear and constant from the beginning, which makes you feel prepared and sure. I will dearly miss this family, the dogs, the fish, the Irish countryside (my forest walks!), and Prem's amazing cooking! I've run out of my allotted character count, but please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions if you're curious about this work exchange.
