Farmarbeit in Irland

Ich habe meinen Farmaufenthalt in Waterford/Irland über World Unite! gebucht.

Man kann meine "irische" Zeit eigentlich in einem einzigen Satz zusammenfassen: Es war einzigartig!
Nicht nur Irlands malerische Landschaft, sondern auch die herzlichen Iren ließen mich schnell im Land ankommen und wohlfühlen. Meine Farm lag im Süden, direkt am Atlantischen Ozean - jeden Tag mit Blick auf das Meer zu arbeiten war eine tolles und motivierendes Erlebnis! Auch wenn ich bisher keinerlei Erfahrung mit "farming" hatte, stellte dies keinerlei Problem dar.
Meine zwei wöchentlichen freien Tage nutzte ich für Ausflüge in der Umgebung. Mit den Bussen sind viele größere (aber auch kleinere) Städte sehr gut erreichbar.

Abschließend ein ganz großes Dankeschön an Miriam von Word Unite! Mein Aufenthalt war von Anfang an PERFEKT organisiert! Sie hatte jederzeit ein offenes Ohr für meine Fragen und ich fühlte mich "rund um" bestens aufgehoben!
Ich kann es definitiv empfehlen, einen Farmaufenthalt über World Unite! zu buchen.

  • Perfekte Organisation des gesamten Aufenthalts über World Unite!
  • Erfahrung "fürs Leben"
  • Kennenlernen einer fremder Kultur

Awesome experience with a lovely family!

Sarah and Kos are amazing! They are lovely and funny people. They showed my around the area and included me in family activities all the time! The horses are amazing and Sarah’s riding skills are insanely good, she loves to teach and makes you improve your own skills!
Sarah takes care of everyone individually so the trails are always different and fun so you don’t have to worry that the experience is gonna be the typical tourist experience.
Had a lovely time there and I definitely want to go back!
