I spent two months at the Lodge, it was an amazing experience. Sean, the host, is a really welcoming, fair and goodhearted person. The place where the Lodge is, in my opinion, is the most beautiful spot on Inishmore. The work was pleasant (because involves so many people from all over the world), fair and not too hard. I had plenty of free time for visiting every corner of this beautiful island, meeting local people and enjoying the cozy and welcoming atmosphere of the village and its pubs. I highly recommend this place and this host!

Thank you Ester!. We were very happy with the contribution that you made to the Lodge in 2022. All of us appreciated your kindness, skill, focus on work and interest.
We hope to see you on the Island again next summer.
Kind regards, Seán.



I had never volunteered before and my first time was at the guest house and it couldn't have been better. The place is very peaceful and welcoming. There is beautiful scenery everywhere you look. The tasks at the hostel are simple. The host is very friendly and always helped me in any way he could, he makes you feel at home. I was lucky enough to meet wonderful people during my stay. I highly recommend this place.

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.
