Located in a beautiful, quaint area of Dublin city, MM provides a wonderful opportunity to explore Dublin and all that makes her one of the greatest cities in the world. The work itself was straightforward and not all too time consuming. I felt that I was trained sufficiently. Sometimes, however, the experience/work/guesthouse felt disorganized and left something to be desired. Communication within the staff felt hit or miss. All in all, though, I am thankful for this experience.
I had a nice experience at Marilyn Mansion during the 3 weeks I stayed there.
The job wasn't hard, and accommodations are very simple, but comfortable. The hotel's location is great - I always felt safe in the neighbourhood, and had no problem walking to the city center. Staff is mostly nice and fun.
Job training should've been more complete, though, and management could've participated more on the first days.
Out of all my work exchange experiences, Marylin Mansion was my absolute favorite! I felt so welcome and at home- Ashvin and the owners are awesome, Ginara is so much fun, and the overall atmosphere is really great. The work is simple and everything you get in exchange is so worth it. Thank you so much MM family- I will truly miss all of you! ❤
Think about a very cosy place in a great and calm neighbourhood nearby many facilities with very kind and supportive staff: that's Marilyn Mansion!
I've arrived here a month ago and until now I only have good things to tell about this amazing place.
The work is very easy and not so busy. The working hours are good and you'll have plenty of time off. You'll improve your English and even if you speak other languages too.
I highly recommend Marilyn Mansion!
I have been working at Marilyn Mansion for a month and a half and so far it has been a great experience! The work is not hard at all, and you get the opportunity to meet people from all over the world. At the same time, you have the chance to see the behind the scenes of a guesthouse.
I definitely recommend this place to worldpackers coming to Dublin!
Working at the Marilyn Mansion was an awesome experience. The staff was extremely kind and supportive. Work hours were flexible and provided me with an excellent experience to keep on Worldpacking. I would recommend the Marilyn Mansion to any traveller out there looking for a comfortable place to stay and nice people to talk to!
I've been volunteering at Marilyn Mansion for about one and a half month and am definitely pleased with my experience!
The job as receptionist isn't hard at all and allows you to learn something about how to manage a guest house and, at the same time, meet interesting people from all over the world. In case of need, you are always supported by the kind and helpful managers in charge of the house. Last but not least, you have plenty of spare time for yourself!
I therefore would recommend this host to anyone looking for a worldpackers adventure in Dublin and, more in general, in Ireland.
