A beautiful island in Ireland is looking for a couple of people to run its coffee shop.
The islet is willing to provide free residence and food to the selected two.
Posting the job ad to social media, the visitor center for Great Blasket Island wrote: “A unique position required – looking for long term management of Island Accommodation and Coffee Shop. Couple or two friends.”
There is no description of how much money one can make by holding this position. But in case one fails at earning a large sum of money, they’ll be at least free from the worries of groceries and accommodation.
According to the tourism center, the job will remain open from this April to October.
Great Blasket Island which is situated near County Kerry is the largest among all Blasket Islands. It isn’t occupied by a large population.
The Smithsonian reported that the island was previously inhabited by 160 people, and now it’s almost deserted.
It means you can easily enjoy the scenery with your partner or friend while greeting a few tourists daily if you plan on getting this job.
The job is undoubtedly no less than a golden opportunity to spend one’s vacations on a remote island free of cost.
But the person acquiring the job will have to face a few difficulties because the island has no electricity, showers, baths, or internet connection. And there is a shortage of water there too.
People who want to spend time on the island usually bring water for their use.
“It’s intense and tough but it’s a very unique position,” Alice Hayes told Irish broadcaster RTE.
Alice who has previously helped manage the island explained the lifestyle, saying: “It’s back to basics – fires, candles, stoves, wildlife and nature.
“We use gas hobs in the cottages and the coffee shop. We have gas canisters out the back.
“We know when the water is boiled with whistling kettles on top of the hobs, and we can cook on the gas hobs as well.”
Rest assured, you are not going to be separated from the rest of the world because the island has a wind turbine that is capable of charging one electronic device.
So if you want to spend some time in a peaceful, quiet and spectacular island, this job is for you.
Until now the tourism center has received more than 23,000 applications so you have to be quick if you want to secure the position.
