Featured location: Northern Ireland

May 18, 2019

Steeped in rich history, with vivid landscapes, Northern Ireland has so much to offer the adventurous WWOOFer. Known for its Norman castles, and Celtic monuments, there’s plenty to keep you intrigued on your days off.

Choose from 25 hosts, offering anything from veg box schemes, educational centres, to 18th century walled gardens and family farms. WWOOFers can find a wide variety of interesting places.

Perhaps you’d like to see the second tallest tree in Ireland? (host # 96995) or get to chat over a meal with a food historian? (host #95858).

Or maybe you want to spend time learning about social forestry enterprises (#91334)?

Whatever your fancy, WWOOFing in Northern Ireland will be one of the best decisions you’ve ever made.
