I had a good time in Newport working and living in the Bridge Inn. Everyone from Geraldine to Anette, Louise, Regina and Eileen and all the other volunteers were really nice and made me feel welcomed. As in other reviews stated the work is straight forward and you need to adapt fast, but you can always ask someone if you need help. If you communicate early enough you can get specific days off e.x. for travelling. The only two downsides were that I got the staff room which was dirty when I arrived (dust and cob webs) and that there was no heating in december which made every room extremly cold.

It was a really good experience, with a friendly team. The only problem is the number of buses per day... You can't really move to discover Ireland without your own car.

My experience at the guest house was my first at Worldpackers and it was wonderful! The work is divided between helping in the kitchen, organizing and cleaning rooms and serving at the bar. It's not difficult but requires a little agility. I stayed in a room alone, which for me was a very positive point. The city is very small but very cute perfect for good walks. Geraldine is the manager and she is very nice, I felt very good working with her. Seamus is the owner and is a very relaxed person to live with. Regina is the head chef and is a sweet person, funny and prepares wonderful meals. The othe

It was my first experience in volunteering and it was really enriching. I've learned a lot of new tasks. The work is pretty dynamic and I think people who go there has to be prepared for that. In the end, you will undestand that this is their way of working and running the business. The meals are delucious and Regina, the cook,and Geraldine, the manager are lovely; however, the staff is very nice in general. I'm very grateful for this experince.

It was a good experience, they treated me very well, I made friends, I was able to practice English and even Spanish. The schedules were respected, my room was private and I received all the meals (a delight). The city is small, so be aware of that.

I really enjoyed having this experience. Well, everything happened as agreed, the tasks were accessible and well explained. Geraldine (the manager) is a very correct person, helps with tips and gives all the support. Seamus owns it, but it's not talkative. I never spoke to him. The house employee Loise is also very friendly and helpful. Would certainly recommend. The meals are good. The only downside is that the city is very small, but very beautiful. Would stay there again, for sure. If you want a nice place, it's here.

Good experience and one of the best accommodation on this platform. The location is ideal for beautiful scenery, calm and peacefulness . Small but not too remote. Local bus is right by the hotel. I have to say I do not recommend for first timers, you are expected to adapt right away and not much information is provided but the team is always available to answer your questions and also for people that don't enjoy spending time alone. I definitely would go back.

The amount of work is insane , they put me as waiter and they dont give u the table # , u had to guess every time , the lack comunication is a thing also between the members of the org, we were not allowed to grab many types food , they barely give you toast, marmalade and egg, sometimes milk, they are not capable to negotiate days off or exchanging shifts,geraldine told me that if I didnt like it I must move on , so I did Just stay away of this place!! unless u want to be kicked out !

My experience with this volunteering was bad. I cannot speak about the tasks that had to be done because they did not give me the opportunity to stay there because the next day they sent me to another volunteer on another island because they did not need me, on the fourth day of having been in the other volunteer I wanted to return to Newport to talk to my Host and stay at the place I originally applied to but the Host only let me stay one night because he said there was no room for me. The truth is that the treatment of the Host was not adequate and I do not recommend this place to volunteer
