The Great Basket Island, a small landmass near Ireland has offered many internet users' 'dream job' by asking a couple or two friends to live on the island as summer caretakers. The 'unique' position has taken the internet by storm as the employers will not only be provided with food but also salary for the long term assignment. Many Twitter users have posted their wish to apply for the job starting from April 1 till October, and some of them also called it 'perfect'.
The island on Europe's Atlantic fridges is majestic 1,100 acres with views, rains, stiff breezes that power the wind turbine. As per international reports, some people who have lived on the island have said that life on the island is 'very tough and difficult'. However, nearly 7,000 applicants have already applied for the job.

Is there any salary ??!— Brian Hewson (@HewsonBrian) January 11, 2020
or is it just “food and accommodation” provided ?

no salary was mentioned in the initial tweet!

Stayed here last summer. Surely a dream job for the right people. Either way worth a visit. Can’t beat their water storage tank. pic.twitter.com/kqZ9cPlTm9— GreenStreet (@GreenSt69943397) January 11, 2020
