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 colorful 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.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Travelers will meet with different nationalities on holiday 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 maintenance. 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.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
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 humor. 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".
Accommodation is a 30m2 shared bedroom (4 single beds) with a shared bathroom.
Meals will be available free of cost and generally, our new helping hand can eat freely as they wish or see fit.
There is a bus service from the local village directly to Dublin city center. There are great mountain bike trails and endless walking trails in the area. Make friends with the locals and enjoy evenings out in Roundwood village. Plenty to do.
We will be very helpful when it comes to giving my new helpers transport from a to b.
