It was my first worldpacker experience and it was truly amazing! The landscape in Connemara is absolutely beautiful and the people were so nice! Perfect for who wants to be in contact with nature

El hostal es viejo y está todo roto. Le faltan muchas horas de cuidado y el alojamiento para los voluntarios es pésimo. Aun así conocí a gente maravillosa, no solo otros voluntarios sino los que están al mando, Fergal y Laura. Muchas gracias por todo y hasta pronto!

I stayed 2 weeks in this hostel, the place is amazing and people are really cool. Just a bit hard to visit Connemara without a car but if u like hitchhiking u'll definitely love that place =)
