  • Description


    We are James and Rebecca. We manage a small hostel/ bed and breakfast on the edge of the beautiful Wicklow hills in Ireland.
    This is a colourful and funky house with great people passing through and staying over to mainly explore the Wicklow hills and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

    Our place has a great atmosphere and is always homely and welcoming to many guests from all over the world. Here we mainly provide bed and breakfast and friendly information to all of our guests. The house holds a maximum of 20 guests so it is quite small and never too hectic. This is a fun place to be.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will meet with different nationalities on holidays each day. Talking with guests is part of the business so it is great for social skills and speaking in different languages if you so wish.

    I personally do many different tasks around the house and grounds including building works and general garden maintainance. My new helper would be welcome to learn from me practical tasks if they wish or even better to teach me :)
    Helping with other jobs is totally optional.

  • Help


    We require some help checking in guests in the afternoons if we cannot be around. We would like to familiarise our new helper with the local area so that they can give walking advice to guests and general activities in the area.
    All just as simple as it seems :)

    Furthermore we provide dinner for our guests. We need a hand for general kitchen work, like cutting vegetables and cleaning dishes in the evenings. Same with breakfast in the morning.

    General cleaning after guests leaving the house needs also be done. But as it is a small house, it does not take long to finish it :)

    It is vitally important that volunteers are genuinely happy people and enjoy interacting with other people. A good sense of humour. When working in hospitality the hosts attitude will set the mood for the day :)) " we are here for a good time not a long time".
