Volunteering on a farm in Ireland – requirements & tasks

It is a very well-managed and organized farm but I’m on my own with two elderly parents who are in good health. The farm is a certified member of the Bord Bia Quality Assurance program/Origin Green. We have a small number of dry stock (beef cattle) and sheep.

I will ask you to help me with the preparation of the vegetable/herb garden, maintaining and weeding it as well as with counting the cattle each day, observing them for any signs of illness, and feeding them. In winter you will be checking sheds, maintaining farm boundaries, and yards, and preparing meals. You’ll work for about 30 hours a week.

We have been hosting volunteers for many years going back to the early 1990s so we have lots of experience!

Volunteering on a farm in Ireland – what we offer

You will live in a 200-year-old farmhouse, which is fully restored. Our two-generation family lives there, too. You will have your bedroom with all facilities: bathroom, shower, kitchen, washing machines, etc.

An experienced farmer will show you how to perform the tasks and he will give you any information you need.

You’ll be surrounded by a forest of native woodland trees. In your free time, walk in nature and around archaeological/ecclesiastical sites on land adjacent to the river which boasts beautiful waterfalls.
