Full training on the safe use of these methods and safety equipment will be provided by the National Park.

In a self-serviced hostel in the national park, dormitory style. Please bring your sleeping bag and a pillowcase.There are kitchen facilities in the hostel, basic food ingredients will be provided and the volunteers will share in the domestic duties of cooking and cleaning on a rota basis.

5 km from Killarney, Co. Kerry in the southwest of Ireland.

Killarney National Park is located in Co. Kerry in the south west of Ireland. It is 10,000 hectares in size and comprises of mountains, lakes and woodland. It has an extensive range of trees, plants and wildlife. In the 19th century the rhododendron bush (Rhododendron ponticum) was introduced and has proven to be a highly invasive and destructive specie. The rhododendron is threatening the biodiversity of the park and many native species of trees, shrubs, and mosses.

Volunteers need to be prepared to work outside and must be able to walk uphill through tough terrain.

The midge fly is widespread in the park as well as ticks so volunteers must be prepared to use a strong insect repellent and wear a protective net when working.

No WiFi coverage in the park, but it is availiable in a local pub 15 mins from the hostel.

Please note that half of the places on this project are reserved for volunteers from Ireland.
