At the Festival

Help make PsyCare Ireland what it is.
Join our family, learn to help others in crisis and make impactful changes while having fun & serving the larger community. Our Volunteer recruitment is now open until the 13th of April 2023 - to apply to volunteer with us for the summer season 2023 and beyond - click below to start your application.


PsyCare Ireland seeks to attract a diverse group of volunteers.


Our core team currently includes doctors, psychotherapists, plant medicine facilitators, students, nurses and experienced festival goers. What unites all our volunteers, however, is a caring and compassionate approach to the needs of all the attendees of a festival.


All our highly knowledgeable and empathetic volunteers work on a person-led approach to anyone requiring support. We are a community who believe in looking out and caring

for others, and this considerate approach is reflected in the high quality of welfare

and harm reduction services we offer.


If you are interested in volunteering with us, then please consider contacting us. Although skills such as first aid, medical training and counselling qualifications are appreciated, please be aware that not possessing these isn’t a barrier to application. Many of our best volunteers have no formal qualifications related to welfare.


The main skills we look for in all potential applicants are the ability

to care for other people in a non-judgemental and compassionate way,

and an understanding of the nature of the psychedelic experience.
