The Experience

Shantullig is an old farmhouse with new stone extension in the beautiful West Cork countryside not far from the sea. Nature takes over very quickly here, so help is always needed in the garden and to establish a vegetable patch. There is plenty to do if the weather doesn't suit outside work and the largest stone sheds (the original dwelling house) has been restored but needs finishing inside. See the photos to get an idea and do ask questions!

Learning & Fun


It's hard to describe the gratitude I feel for having had my first volunteer experience here!

Hugh is an incredible guy, big-hearted, patient and very good-humored.

The tasks were super quiet to be done, the surrounding landscape is beautiful and Hugh is super flexible with the schedules,

We listen to good music all the time, we eat really well, have fun and count a lot of hot stars on open day. I will not forget the days I spent here, surely I recommend you to have this experience here as well.

Gratitude for everything!
