Aras was my first experience with worldpackers and I absolutely loved it there!
I've been there for six weeks, but it felt like much less, because work didn't feel like work and, most importantly, because of Leon, Gillian and Minky of course!
From the first second, they made you feel welcome. We shared a lot of laughs and spent beautiful evenings in the kitchen eating cake.
I have so many things to say, but the review can't be longer than 600 characters. Nevermind, words can't express how grateful I am that they made my experience so enjoyable!
Thanks Leon and Gillian! Wish you the best!

Aras is a lovely place. As soon as you get there you feel welcomed and as a part of the hostel. If you want to travel, to see the nature of Ireland and simultaneously want to get to learn a lot of new people, Aras is the perfect place. Gillian and Leon are always very bright and always have a good laugh with the guests and the workers. Both of them are very caring and really love the area and love to show you where the best places to go are. I've been there with a friend and in our 6 weeks we enjoyed the area and had tons of laughs over a piece of cake. Both really make it a unique stay!

I came to Aras with Aniek and I absolutely loved it there. It is a very remote place, but it is well connected with a bus line. The bus stop is a few meters away and takes you to Donegal.
The surroundings at Aras are absolutely stunning. Wherever you walk to, the view is beautiful.
You will be lodged in the BnB. All I can say about it, is that it’s very comfortable. You have access to a large kitchen and you can relax in the lounge.
And Leon and Gillian are of course lovely people. They make you feel at home and help you with things as much as possible.
I will definitely miss Aras!

Aras is a great place for volunteering. You will feel as you are at home. The work is very easy and the place is amazing. You will be in contact with nature, you will meet a lot of people and you will have really a good time there! Thanks Lion and Gill for taking care about me.

We have had an amazing experience at Aras BnB. This was our first volunteer experience. We were there in September, when the season was almost over. The work was quite easy and light. It’s very quiet, but the surroundings are beautiful and worth it. Leon and Gillian are also lovely people, they welcome you with open arms (Gillian bakes amazing cakes). They’ll show you around the area, and take you to the highlights.
We will miss them and Aras, but hopefully we’ll see each other again!
