Hello. We have been closed due to covid 19 and are looking to reopen July 16th. Do you want to come and help us in our lovely hostel?
We're looking for a few people to come to Kilkenny, Ireland's most historic medieval city!

We run a hostel where the vibe is friendly and relaxed and you'll be part of a great team. You'll get accommodation in a staff-only bedroom, free laundry, WiFi, free tea and coffee and use of the kitchen where you can cook your own food. We ask you to help for around 15 to 20 hours per week.

You'll be doing general duties, cleaning and making beds. There will also be lots of time to hang out with the other helpers, meet the hostel guests and have a great time in Kilkenny. We are also happy to chat about things you're good at too. So if you can play music, or take amazing photos that we can use on our website, or you're great at blogging, or want to organise social activities for our guests then tell us!! Let's chat about what you'd like to do and see if it would be good for us :-)

As well as our normal day to day activities we're always cleaning/fixing things to get the place looking great.
We'd like you to help out 3-4 hours a day. Of course you'll also get weekly days off too, generally two consecutive days so you can explore other places in Ireland if you want! It would be amazing if you had experience in a hostel or painting/ or being a handyman/woman. If not it's no big deal as long as you're enthusiastic and willing to learn.
This is ideal for someone who wants to be part of a friendly and hardworking team, and who wants to enjoy time in a new city.

In exchange you'll get great experience in a dynamic environment, accommodation in a comfy staff only dormitory room with access to the garden, WiFi, free Laundry and as much tea and coffee as you want. Whilst we don't provide any meals we do have a fully self catering kitchen where you can cook. You'll also have loads of free time to explore Kilkenny and make yourself at home in this great city.

If this interests you please email and tell us:

When you can arrive and how long you want to stay
What work experience you've had.
A few things about you.

Please note: To help us you need to have an EU passport, or if you're from a non EU country then you require a valid work visa for Ireland.


This Hostel is cosy and comfy and right in the centre of Kilkenny. We are Kilkenny's longest running Hostel and we are always busy welcoming guests from all over the world. The atmosphere is relaxed and our Staff are extremely friendly. Our Hostel is in an amazing old building full of character and charm and close by to pubs, cafes and all Kilkenny's attractions.
