  • Description


    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, internet access, books, yoga space, bouncing 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 6 rooms, bright clean and comfortable spaces with extensive delicious breakfasts, bikes and books about the island and our culture.

    We are a small new business that is currently finding our way. We need people who can respect that and have genuine intentions to contribute and to help us fulfill our goals!
    Hospitality is fast paced and requires energy and attention to detail. We would need our team members to work quickly, energetically and with purpose especially during the morning rush! :)

    A good attitude is essential and absolutely welcomed here! (We need lovely, happy, honest people to add to the moral ;)
    We would be very appreciative of the help and we will tend to our workers in any way we can to ensure they have an enjoyable experience with us and on the island! We have standards in which we have made, are making and intend to uphold. Patience, teamwork and communication are key!

    We have openings available for those interested in learning about the culture of the island and also have the qualities & skill-sets required.
    Looking forward to you being apart of our ever evolving multicultural TEAM! .... :D

  • Help


    Mostly we need help with tending to the guestrooms, preparing breakfasts, cleaning & laundry.
    At the beginning of the season we have an opening for those interested in maintenance, gardening and painting.
    Professional photography skills NEEDED , to help with website, 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 as they work certain tasks!
    The work will be mostly in the morning where you'll usually be finished for the day around 2 or 3pm and then you're free to take a bike and explore, or afternoon shifts, at times with the latest being till 8 or 9 when all our guests would be happily checked in.
