    Description

    Hello!
    Come join us in our big beautiful guest lodge by the beach on the stunning island of Inismór off the west coast of Ireland! This place is a culturally rich historic and monastic gem. Covered in Celtic forts, ruins, breathtaking beaches and cliffs, it is a place for endless adventure and education! The Irish language is spoken in abundance and the nature and wildlife are simply enchanting! Little noise or light pollution, so all you'll hear is the sound of waves, the birds, the bees, the animals, the wind and the sound of horse and carriages roll by and all you'll see at night is the moon and the stars! No pollution and a lot of peace.

    We have a massive communal room with tv, books, yoga space, rocking chairs & beanbag, a large dining room with teas, coffees, hot choc & cookies at all times & bikes to use whenever you need!

    We have guests from all over the world and we are here to provide comfort and guidance for them as they embark on adventures or ease into rest. We offer our guests 5 rooms, bright clean and comfortable spaces with extensive delicious breakfasts, bikes and books about the island and our culture. :)

    *️️️*️️️*️️️Our Lodge will be closed from October until April.Our Lodge may be of interest to those interested in working providing accommodation and food for the visitor. This may be of interest for an individual or couple with specific skills in this area who wish to be with us for the summer or part of it. Accommodation and salary will be available for suitable staff .We plan to have two or three with us at a time.

  • Help

    Help

    Mostly we need help with tending to the guestrooms and cleaning up after breakfast.
    Any computer help is always welcome! We're always trying to update our ways and become more organised.
    Professional photography skills needed as we are constantly updating our lodge decor and social medias etc..
    When we're busy you could be asked to switch tasks at a moments notice and it would be great if you could go with flow!
    The work is straightforward and enjoyable as we like to keep moral and energy high and provide workaways with a speaker to listen to their music or podcasts as they work certain tasks!
    The work will be in the morning and you'll usually be finished for the day around 2 or 3pm and then you're free to take a bike and explore!

    TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAMWORK! ;)
