Great Blasket Island

(Meredith) - If you want to get away for a few months to run a coffee shop on a remote island, this may be your dream job.

Great Blasket Island is looking for two people, preferably friends, to manage its accommodation and coffee shop located off Ireland's Atlantic coast. 

This unique position comes with free food and lodging. 

Great Blasket has over 1,100 acres of unspoiled mountainous terrain. It's also home to an abundance of wildlife and is "thriving with Irish culture," according to the island's website.

Though filled with beautiful scenery, the island does not have electricity or WiFi. A handful of full-time residents live there, and it's only accessible by boat from surrounding islands. 

If you're still interested in applying for this opportunity, email for more information.
