This was my first experience, and I honestly could not have asked for a better place or better people to spend it with. From the first day it felt like home, everyone who works there are so kind and welcoming, it was most definitely a family. The work and hours are fair, and you have the opportunity to do a little bit of everything. This experience allowed me to gain skills in reception, cleaning, cooking, maintenance and in navigating the online programs.
The city is wonderfully located with a bus station for exploring bigger cities is just down the road. Thank you & Miss you all SO MUCH!
I had a great experience at the Spoon and the Stars hostel. The staff is lovely. Owners Rory and Hannah are great. There are 4 main 5 hour shifts. First is 8 to 1pm, and it's morning reception and house keeping. 10 to 3 which is house keeping. 12 to 5 which i mainly reception but with some housekeeping if they need help. Lastly 5 to 10 which is reception work. Drogheda is really close to Dublin so you could do day trips (get a leap card, but don't do round trip on it, always do singles), and just as close to Belfast. Between the staff and the long term guests felt like a big family.
I would fully recommend going to Spoon and the stars. Working there is a very fun adventure, there is always new people to meet and nice things to do in the surroundings, the town is nice. The work we do is simple and quick, sometimes can be a little time consuming but nothing you cannot finish during your schedule. Everything is well organized and Rory, Sal and Hanna (the bosses) are ready to help at any time. It's easy to feel home because everybody is very welcoming. I loved my time at the Spoon and the stars, I learned a lot and would for sure go back and work there again as a volunteer.
S&S was a really welcoming and cozy experience. Rory and the staff were extremely kind, instructive, and attentive to any questions/concerns I had. The duties primarily included housekeeping with the ability to do reception should you wish! The staff room was full, which was a bummer, to be honest, but oh well! The city itself is quaint. This area is a decent base should you wish to see Dublin or Belfast. The heart of S&S is its community feel. It really does feel like family, even though I decided to cut my time short to pursue a life back in the States. Thanks for your hospitality, Rory!
