I felt the Portree like my home from the first day. It is really a nice experience that I recomend, a good way to travel, improve your English skills and to meet a lot of new people.

I have no words to describe how amaizing was be at Portree! All the staff was really nice and fun! The voluntieers had dinner together everyday, cooking and eating made us become like a family! The friends if I made there I'll keep in my life forever. The menegers are really nice and help us a lot. I definitely recommend to everyone. Thank you Portree

Portree was my home during one month.
The staff it´s so nice, always happy and smiling. The work is easy and you can do other activities during the day.
It's possible visitit other villages near and go to Dublin o Cork one day.
It's was one of the best experiences on my life.
Meet new friends, stay with the guest, meet new people everyday, go out to the pubs or clubs...Waterford it's a nice city, you have everything that you need.

I hope return one day!!! Perfect!!

Waterford is the oldest city in Ireland (1100 years old!) - it's an hour and three quarters from both Cork and Dublin and well served by rail and buses. The city itself has lots of festivals and plenty to see and do. Nearby there are some of Ireland's nicest...
