Rougey Lodge

Do you want to spend Summer surfing on the beautiful West Coast? Then come and join our hostel team! In exchange for 20 hours of work a week you get free staff accommodation, surfboard and wetsuit hire, surf lessons, BBQ use, and lots of fun!

Rougey Lodge is a easygoing surf lodge on the West Coast of Ireland. The staff team is a great mix of Irish and backpackers from around the world, who all love to surf, hang out, and explore the beautiful coastline where we live! Many of us have worked in other countries and other hostels so we know what it takes to run a fun one, while we love the enthusiasm and friendliness of team members who are volunteering for the first time!

It has been a personally enriching experience, although there are some things that I think could have been improved.
The hostel and in general the Bundoran area is quite quiet during the week and completely crazy during the weekends (in autumn).
I would have liked to be able to surf more, but here the car is a must if you want to enjoy the area and visit other areas, as the bus schedules are not very extensive and the town is quite small, in a week you have seen everything.
