The Experience

I am looking for help in my five-bedroom BnB which is in the third generation of my family and was originally built by my grandfather. I require help cleaning rooms with laundry, ironing, checking in guests, and help all round the house. Every helper will have their own private room with free wifi, you will be given three meals a day and have two days a week off. You will also have the use of my mountain bike.

I had an excellent experience at the guest house B+B. John was a great host, friendly, respectful, and cooked the best dinners! Activities were super easy as it's a small B&B. Although is located in a relatively remote area, I visited a few interesting places. If you're looking for something calm and relaxing (as I was!), that's the place. If you want parties and sightseeing all the time, read the room lol it's the Irish countryside! :) Anyway, I am very grateful to John, and also to Evelyn, I will have fond memories of them, the horses, and sweet Ruby <3

If you are wondering whether to apply for this volunteering, the answer is a big YES. The B&B has 5 rooms so the cleaning duties are very simple. The shifts are in the morning so you have the afternoons to explore the area or take the opportunity to unplug and relax surrounded by nature. To get there you have to take a bus Dub-Galway and Gal-Letterfrack (30€). John is a very kind man, with great culinary talents, very respectful and polite. Jonh: Thank you so much for making me feel part of the family, I hope that fate will cross our path again! It will be hard to beat this volunteer :)

It was my first experience and it exceeded my expectations. The time goes by very quickly. From the first moment you feel welcomed by John and the other volunteers. The tasks are easy and not heavy to do. The food is delicious and the beach is super close and beautiful. I would definitely recommend it.

My experience at castle house was amazing. John is a wonderful person, the tasks are easy and the place has everything you need to have a good experience. John's dinners are delicious, work hours and days off are respected by the host, on your days off you can go to Renvyle beach, climb the mountains in the area that have amazing views, go to Conemara national park or tour the nearby towns. I am very grateful for the experience at castle house, I felt very welcome and I made great friends, I highly recommend it.

My experience has been amazing here. I couldn't have asked for a better place to be at. Tully, Renvyle has captured my heart. About the host: Leaving John expert cooking skills aside, he is the most kind hearted Irish person I've met! Always looking after volunteers, going the extra mile for us and treating us like family. I'm so grateful. About the work: simply fun, fair hours, flexibility, never getting bored and easy tasks. I am beyond lucky to have found this place and stayed in the guest house with John and more amazing people all this time (I extended my time twice already). 🫶🏻
