My experience at the guest house can be summed up in two words: Nature and friends. The Lodge is remote, ideal for those seeking immersion in nature and tranquility. Sean, the host, is welcoming. Meals are provided, and tasks include preparing breakfast and cleaning rooms. Tasks may change as needed. The usual work is 5 hours but can vary. The internet is unstable. I enjoyed the company of friendly volunteers and caring for the cats, Midnight and Sylvester. This is great for learning about Irish culture and improving your English.

Seán is an attentive host. He always makes jokes and cares about your well-being. It was my first time as a volunteer and I don't think it could have been better! If you are looking for a beautiful, calm place where you can connect with nature, this is the ideal experience. If you are a digital nomad or like to be online all the time, you may have problems with your internet connection. Regardless, enjoy!

The guest house is an amazing place to be. You will connect with nature and enjoy it. You can walk or bike anywhere in the island and it is really worth it. Sean is a nice host and provides all you need to have a comfort stay. Tasks are easily done, it's important to be in a good vibe if you're asked to change tasks at the moment. I had the best time and all was well. I learned a lot and wish to have spent more time there. Beware that phone data and WiFi may not work properly due to the location. I truly recommend this experience.

The experience was amazing! Sean is a really kind person and he listen to you about your interests and concerns. This experience is perfect if you want to improve your English and your skills on hostels. The place is nice and you gonna have time for disconnect and discover the island :)
