The Experience

Mostly we need help with tending to the guestrooms, preparing breakfasts, cleaning & laundry. When we're busy you could be asked to switch tasks at a moment's notice and it would be great if you could go with the flow! The work is straightforward, enjoyable. Employment may be available with those management and cooking skills.

The experience was great. My expectations about the environment and the local place were satisfied, it was as I imagined. Sean ,the owner was very nice, He tried to do the maximum to make you feel comfortable and to give you the way to live your experience and to work well.
Inis Mor is a beautiful island 🏝️, I suggest it if you wanna really get in touch with nature and cliffs, live in a quite environment , and get in touch with local people (you have to go to the main village). The job is very dynamic because many guests are from all over the world and it helps you to be responsible.

It was an amazing and unforgettable experience! At first I was unsure because it was on an island, but when I got there I saw that there were many houses, there was a market and the landscape was really spectacular. I lived truly intense moments surrounded by nature. It was wonderful to be able to ride a bike, watch and enjoy the seals and be speechless with the sunset.
About the volunteer place, the rooms are cozy and beautiful. The Host is very polite, kind and respectful. The job was extremely easy! In short, it was a very positive experience and I will remember it forever!

Thank You Loren for your kind words.Good luck in your future adventures.Sean.



10/10! The three months spent at the Aran Walkers Lodge were eventful and exciting. I can highly recommend this experience to anyone who loves tranquility, nature and the world of hospitality. On Inis Mor you can enjoy the beaches, hiking or cycling after work. It was an absolute honor to meet Sean. He is one of the nicest, most generous and hardworking people I have ever met. Always in a good mood and always a funny line in store. He gave me a lot of freedom and the opportunity to independently work on new areas of responsibility. This enabled me to broaden my horizon!
