  • Description


    We are a small team focused on offering a positive and memorable experience for all of our guests and staff. We work hard to keep everybody's energies positive and in harmony. We have two buildings, one is the hostel, the other is our lodge and in between we have a surf shed that works as surf school.

    We bring groups of people in and we offer them surf, accommodation and connect them with other activities around the village. Our main goal is to help our guests experience the charm and beauty that we love about our little coastal village.

    We are a surf school, hostel, and lodge and we are looking for people with good vibes, young travelers who are adventurous and keen to help and enjoy the our charming seaside village.

    We mainly need help with housekeeping: changing beds, doing laundry, cleaning, etc. However, we do also need people for outdoor work, gardening, reception, handyman projects, painting, surf instructing (if already certified), community management, and IT development.

    If you are not an EU citizen you need a proper work visa to volunteer with us.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our village is one of the most beautiful places in Ireland. We are surrounded by sand dunes, Knocknarea Hill - a 330m tall "mountain" with beautiful views of Donegal, Sligo, and Leitrim Counties. It is also the site of several Megalithic Tombs, including Queen Maeve's Tomb. We are at the heart of a seaside surfing village and our property is a two-minute walk from the beach.
    We are just 8km outside of Sligo town which has connections by bus and train to the rest of the country. There is a bus stop that is also a two-minute walk up the road with easy access by bus into town every hour.
