Following what's been almost a year of working from home, little is more desirable than the idea of getting paid to live on a beautiful island with your significant other or close friend!

The role involves managing the island's coffee shop and four holiday cottages.

Successful candidates will spend their days greeting guests and serving drinks on the island off Kerry.

High season can get extremely busy and the job requires hardworking, responsible and trustworthy applicants.

The caretakes will live above the coffee shop, sharing the main bedroom - hence why the positions tend to go to couples.

But there are no rules on who may apply!

The role begins on 1st April 2021 and finishes on 1st October.

A wage will be discussed upon application.
