Great Blasket Island

If you have been looking to unplug from a mundane routine or simply thinking of opting for a sabbatical, Ireland is the place for you. 
Great Blasket Island is an island just a few miles off the coast of Ireland. Great Blasket’s tourism center tweeted about a job opening looking for 2  people to manage a coffee shop and accommodations on the Island, starting April 2020 till October 2020.

The tweet says, “A unique position required – looking for long term management of Island Accommodation and Coffee Shop. Couple or two friends. 1st April 2020 – October 2020 accommodation and food provided,”

The Great Blasket Island is the largest of the group of islands called The Blaskets, situated off the western coast of Ireland.

Known for its wildlife, its rough terrain has kept the island scarcely habituated with the maximum population to be around 160. However, the Great Blasket’s website claims that a number of houses have been restored and amenities provided to encourage and help the visitors to the island.

The island has no WIFI, electricity, hot showers. With limited drinking water supply, the website claims this to be the real experience of visiting and staying on the island.

The tweet did not list a salary for the job, but surely this is one lucrative offer. This is a different yet exciting job offer and has garnered more than 27000 applications from all over the world.

But it’s never too late to try! You can email info@greatblasketisland.net to apply and learn more about the position.
