Linden hall Townhouse
Our guest house is located in Westport town center, only 5 minutes walk to the main street with all the bars, restaurants and cafes. Westport is a popular place to visit with tourists because of the pretty tree-lined river that runs through it and its charming old style buildings. The train station and bus station are both within 10 minutes walk away so traveling without a car is easy.
It is a relatively small town on the west coast of Ireland and has retained its small-town friendly atmosphere. there are lots of beautiful places to visit in the surrounding area, beaches, lakes, mountains (famous Croagh Patrick mountain) only 15 minutes drive away, Connemara (an area of outstanding beauty 30 minutes away). The country-side is only minutes away too, Cycle into the countryside on the greenway, a 42 km off-road track to Achill Island or watch the sun go down from the quay area, (15 mins walk). It's all here! ;-)
I have been running this guest house for nearly 20 years so I have lots of experience dealing with tourists and staff of different nationalities. I love to travel too and learn about different cultures from the people I meet. We are a small guest house (only 6 rooms) and only have a few staff so it is important that we all get on well. I like everyone to be happy here as happy staff means happy guests. You will have your own private bedroom and a shared bathroom.
We (the owners) do not live in the B&B, we live elsewhere. We provide breakfast items and basic food items, you can cook for yourself and use of the kitchen at any time. We pay 40 euro a week towards your other meals, paid every two weeks. Your duties would be to check-in guests (a simple procedure), provide them with restaurant recommendations and info on what to do etc, set up a buffet breakfast and clean-up after breakfast. Keeping the general areas clean and tidy.

We expect you to be out-going with a friendly personality, have good English (Important) so you can talk to our guests and are happy to assist them and help make their stay a pleasant one.
