i might be able to help you out. i am from dublin as well but have been working in the hamptons every summer for the last few years. i will be moving out there again this summer with 2 friends. with your crowd plus mine we might be able to find one big house where we can all crash.
but let me ask you, where will you be working? Money is a big deal and if you a re not earning anything it will get very expensive very quickly. i assume you all will be doing J1's, but dates are you gonna be in the states, from and until?
