An advertisement for two caretakers to manage accommodation and a cafe on Great Blasket, an Island off Ireland’s Atlantic coast, has drawn interest from Alaska to Africa.
“It is an intense and tough but very unique position”, says Alice Hayes, who placed the advertisement. The position would involve going back to the basic fires, candles, stoves, wildlife, and nature.
A few benefits of the position includes free accommodation, food and spectacular views of Ireland’s most westerly point.
The caretaker would have to run three cottages, accommodating up-to 21 people; serve tea, coffee and snacks to the visitors. The position is scheduled to run from April 1st 2020 to October 1st 2020.
