    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Spend a maximum of 3 hours per day doing general hostel tasks, apart from that, your time is your own.

    We have a mixed international customer base, so you will meet and chat to people from all over the world - this gives non-native speakers an excellent opportunity to practise speaking English with a wide variety of people and learn about different cultures.
    you also have the opportunity to practise speaking French, German, Spanish, Italian and Chinese on a regular basis and in a friendly, informal environment.
    Everyone cooks on a rotating nightly basis, so if you are currently unable to cook will learn that most important of life skills!
    You will also have the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the culture of one of Ireland's few Gaelic-speaking regions - spend time with the local people and learn about the language, music, history and traditions of the Aran Islands
