While I will be preparing all the meals, I will need help with food preparation, ongoing cleaning, dishwashing after meals, tidying up, and packing meals for our excursions. We'll truly become a community through this shared experience. Also, please be aware that Portrush is located in Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. Make sure you have the necessary visas or permissions for this trip. Before we set off, there will be a chance for you to inform us of any dietary restrictions and preferences, including your choice of having alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages available during the journey.
