A remote island in Ireland is looking for 2 friends to live there for free and run its coffee shop

How would you like to live on a remote dream island, and run a business there? Sound like a dream, which can become true with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Great Blasket Island can be found in Ireland, and there is a job opening there for 2 persons for 6 months. The job consists of running the local coffee shop and manage the accommodations on the isolated island, from April to October. There is a trick though, as the island has no electricity of Wi-Fi and only a limited amount of drinking water so it would be more suitable for those who prefer an off-the-grid type of lifestyle. The island looks dreamy though and is surrounded by pristine waters and the home of beautiful hills.

Great Blasket Island is also known for its wildlife, but unfortunately, it has a rough terrain which is the reason why it only has 160 remaining residents. Because of the island’s peculiarities, it is an interesting place to visit for those who seek adventure and a break from modern holidays. It can also be an interesting experience to run a coffee shop in such a remote place and those interested can apply via info@greatblasketisland.net.

    I only make 2 cups of coffee per day and I don’t roll out of bed no sooner than 10:00 am. I need cream in my coffee and YOU must supply the cow or goat as it seems that there will be no refrigerator. Does the local store have “Everything” bagels? If not that’s a deal breaker. Send first and last months pay in advance.
    Take care and stay safe,
    Capt. Paul

  47. Paul says:

    I use a coffee press and grind my own beans. I only make (2) cups per day and only roll out of bed after 10:00 am. I require cream in my coffee so YOU must supply the cow or the goat as it looks like there is no refrigerator. Does the local store have “Everything” bagels? I hope so because if not that’s a deal breaker. Please send me the first and last months paycheck in advance.
    Take care and stay safe,
    Paul

    Why are all of you commenters applying here? What makes you think the advertisers will see your comments? Surely it’s obvious that you need to apply to the actual advert if you’re interested and not leave random comments under an article on a news site?!?! Unbelievable.
