We’d love to have you as part of our team. The work is a little tough for a few hours per day but the fun we have and the Irish travel opportunities we offer you will be truly fantastic

We are part of a nation-wide network of hostels. Check out www.irelandstophostels.com.

We have huge 150 bed hostels in Dublin, Belfast and Cork. Medium sized in Killarney, then small ones in Derry and the Dingle Peninsula. We also have luxury tourists apartments in Belfast.

Anyway, I am Marketing Director for the all the above but I personally own 50% of Derry hostel which is why it is my pride and joy and I dream one day of winning a Hoscar – the Oscars of the global hostel industry! We run a good show in Derry, as mentioned we are #1 accommodation in Derry on tripadvisor.com

If you come and stay with us you will be staying in an authentic Irish City, full of history and politics and friendly people... not some tourist-trap.

We are very firnedly with our local pub - Peadar O'Donnells and we go there for music every night of the week and you will become great friends with all the bar staff and musicians there.

Come join us, stay as litle or as long as you like.

NOTE: Volunteer free-travel on the Paddywagon is on standby basis, just like in Airlines, if there is an empty seat on a tour you can go on it, if a paying guest books the seat however you will have to wait until the next seat is free. In summer its sometimes difficult to get you on the exact date of departure you may want, but in Winter its usually very easy.
