  • Description


    With our Large Island Lodge on a private Island in Clew Bay, just 12 mins from a beautiful town of Westport, Co Mayo. A beautiful part of the Wild Atlantic Way, just 10mins from Westport Town, voted the best place to live in Ireland.

    Clew Bay is an area of outstanding beauty with an Island for each day of the year. You will stay with us in our family home in Castlebar and sometimes help there or on the Island. We would love some help which we will be happy to pay some pocket money for help with cleaning getting the Lodge ready for guests. Also helping with groups going Sea Kayaking around the Islands of Clew Bay.

    It's a beautiful part of the world and I am sure you will enjoy the Experience, Nature, and cultural exchange while improving your level of English.. We would also some days need help looking after our children, age 3, 6, 9.

    Hope to See you Soon...
