I had such a great time on this experience. Sean is knowledgeable, kind, and wants you to have the best time whilst on the island. He trust you and values your opinion and judgement in the work you do. The work is about 4-5 hours a day but Sean is flexible depending on your needs. The island itself is stunning and you really do need a month to explore it!

My experience at the guest house was great. Sean was always very generous and when I arrived he and the other volunteers held meetings to distribute the weekly work. My room was very comfortable and I felt at home. The job is easy to learn. I learned how to make Irish breakfast and saw beautiful places on the island. The nature here is fantastic. Some days we have more work than others. It largely depends on the number of guests. I just have to thank Sean for this experience. I would like to go back someday.

My time at the guest house was exceptional. I truly enjoyed every moment on Inis Mór. The tasks were completed easily, hours respected, and Sean is a great host! I absolutely recommend this experience.

Inishmore is a beautiful island and the scenery is breathtaking. If you're looking to spending time in nature and disconnecting from the noise/stress of the big cities, this is the place to be. There are many touristic places you can visit and the beach is just a few minutes away walking from the lodge. Sean, the host, knows a great deal about his homeland and he can teach you a lot. He also needs all the help he can get and gives you the freedom to work on different areas where you might help him. Overall a great experience in an amazing place. Thanks Sean for all of your help!

Thank you Carolina for your kind words and for your assistance over the past month. I am glad that you enjoyed the experience and I wish you all the best going forward. Kind regards, Sean.



Mr Seán gave a very welcome, he was respectful with an Irish sense of humour. Just enjoy. 😅The tasks were distributed equally in my experience,but with agreements made with the staff themselves. My tip for anyone who wants to come to the Lodge is to follow the instructions for the day. Don't focus on the kitchen if you have many bedrooms and bathrooms to clean. If there are many guests at breakfast, it's okay to clean the kitchen alone. The demand of the day that need pay attention. It was a positive experience, I recommend it.The island is beautiful and the locals are always friendly. 🤗
