Do you dream of quitting the rat race and moving to a remote island to run a B&B, book shop or animal sanctuary? You’re not alone. From Alaska to South Africa, hundreds of people have responded to a posting to manage accommodation and a cafe on Ireland’s Great Blasket island.

It’s the latest ‘dream job’ opportunity to attract applications from around the world, following posts for a barefoot bookseller in the Maldives and the chance to run a cat sanctuary on the Greek island of Syros.
