Old Mill Hostel

Westport is a very exciting place to be, especially during busy seasons. Volunteers are able to see this up close as the hostel is located in the heart of the town centre. Volunteers have their own separate accommodation (including bathroom) from the hostel so it's great to have your own space. You will volunteer for 5 days and roughly 4/5 hours depending on the day. This is often much less as all morning tasks can be completed faster depending on the number of checkouts. You will also have 2 days off where you are free to wander about Westport and its surroundings - this is also possible on the days when you are working.

We like for volunteers to feel like part of the team from the very beginning. Living in a hostel is a dynamic environment and there is always something new and interesting to discover. We aim for our volunteers to enjoy their time in Westport as much as possible forever how long they stay with us. As it is a family-run hostel, there is only a few members of staff and this allows volunteers to develop close and interpersonal links with us all.

J'ai passé 3 superbes semaines au Old Mill Holiday Hostel.
Niamh est une hôte à l'écoute et qui essaie d'aider le plus que possible ses volontaires.
Les jours de repos à la suite permettent d'avoir suffisamment de temps pour visiter et profiter de la région.
Enfin, j'ai pu travailler au sein d'une équipe aux fortes personnalités mais très attachantes! Merci

I felt at home from the first day I arrived. Niamh is an amazing person, always smiling and very welcoming. The room is comfortable, the work is very simple, and the host complied with everything that was agreed. Without a doubt one of the best experiences of my life as a volunteer. The city is small and calm, beautiful beaches very close. Daniela the Colombian manager is a sweet and cheerful person, always helps with communication and in everything that is needed.

This was such a great experience and I am very sad to leave! Niamh and all the other volunteers created an atmosphere that felt like a little family. We had the best laughs and the best of times. I made some great connections with the team - definitely long-lasting ones. I’m going to miss everyone but all the more reason to come back soon! Slainte!
