I run a small Art Gallery Café on the beautiful Sheep`s Head Peninsula, West Cork. I live here with my two young teenage boys, a dog, a cat, a small flock of chickens and also a few fish.

We grow organic vegetables in our polytunnel, keep chickens for fresh eggs daily, we would eat vegetarian food a lot of the time.

We are by the sea in a walkers` paradise; this is also the opportunity to meet other international travelers of all ages in the gallery/café who resonate with nature (walking/cycling) or are interested in the arts or just relaxing in the sea air.
Though this is a wild, rural area, there is a wealth of culture on the peninsulas, pubs, restaurants, fishing, music, etc and the thriving seaside town of Bantry is just a 15-mile drive.

The Gallery will be open from April and is closed again at the end of September, so there are jobs to be done like painting, general maintenance around the place and gardening right now.
I'll be needing help serving and working in the cafe/Gallery later in the year, so you will NEED TO SPEAK ENGLISH for this part of the help, if you have any experience in hospitality it would be an advantage but not necessary.

Would you like to help with some work in the garden and polytunnel, tending the vegetables or feeding Chickens?

We need help around the house painting. Maybe you can try your hand at sharing the cooking if its something you're into.

We will provide breakfast, lunch and an evening meal and will try to find and buy the food you like.
You will have your own room, We can be very flexible about most things in terms of duties, length of stay, etc. It all depends on how well we all get on together, I would prefer for your stay to be at least 2 weeks so you get the time to see around and visit local beauty spots and time to explore this wild Atlantic way.

Please contact Michael for further details, also take a look at
for location and more info.
