This hostel is in a lovely area that overlooks the beautiful Killary Fjord on the Wild Atlantic Way and is close to the Connemara National Park.
We are looking for people who would like to come and experience this very authentic part of Ireland. In exchange for your work you will be provided with accommodation and a light breakfast in the hostel and the chance to experience Irish culture. Duties will include making beds, general housekeeping and possibly working reception if the level of English is good.

We are now closed for the winter but we will have openings from 20th March 2020 until 4th November 2020, ideally for at least 3 weeks but all requests will be considered. Please contact Fergal with dates of availability.
