My stay was good! The staff are really nice and kind. There's loads to do in the area by bus. The work is fair for the exchange and overtime sometimes happens but you are accommodated for it!! I recommend :))

An overall positive experience at the Bridge inn. Newport is a beautiful town and the locals are friendly and welcoming. Would have loved a bit more training at the beginning rather than being thrown straight in however this is a good challenge in being a fast learner. A good thing to note, if wanting to do extra travel on days off, the buses are reliable but only come a few times a day so careful planning is required I got stranded in the near by towns a few times! But overall was a great experience working with the staff and other volunteers from around the world!

A real great experience in Newport. You work in a local pub and hostel where you can interact with local people. The staff and volunteers are very lovely and you can improve your English very easy. the guest house is a very cozy house. I recommend the experience if you are willing to learn and live new experiences.

An incredible experience in the Bridge Inn pub with a really kind staff. Newport is near to a lot of grand places, Westport, Achill Island, Ballycroy National Park, etc. The locals are lovely. Recommended at 100%.
