It was really great time in Letterfrack. Janet is an amazing host mom and is so friendly and accommodating. I felt comfortable around the clock and in the end it even felt a bit like home. The work is really fine. I will definitely miss Letterfrack and Janet!

I was so lucky to find the lodge and Janet, this was my first stop in Ireland and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Right from the start Janet is so kind and accommodating. Life at the lodge is easy going and it’s fun to talk to people from all over the place in a relaxed environment. The work is very reasonable and lots of time to explore beautiful Connemara area. I was lucky to meet two other awesome volunteers and I will always remember this trip! :)

This has been our first volunteer experience and we would definitely recommend it to everyone. You are going to meet exceptional people who will become your family.

We are a couple and we stayed for three months. Three incredible months thanks to the people around you like Janet, Mike and many more.
It is a very good place to improve your English as you will constantly be talking to guests.

Thank you Letterfrack for giving us so much! And thank you, Janet, for all your support, love and always helping us in everything. You are incredible people. We adore you.
