Some people do this for the surfing and outdoor activities- some do it so they can live in Ireland like a local, and become immersed in a small, lovely Irish community. Whatever the reasons, you are made welcome. It will help if you like sports, as the mornings are about improving your skills as an outdoor instructor. But no one forces you - and if you'd prefer, for example, to photograph the other instructors, or do something different, that's OK. But mostly, you will swim, surf, climb, lifeguard, and get the world-recognised qualifications of Surf Lifeguard by the end of the 12 weeks. You will also participate in the work that goes on in Donegal Adventure Centre and work with youth and adult groups. You will become part of the community and the staff, and the town. There is a very lively social life- lots of pubs, live music, - and there is excellent access to Dublin & Galway, and many places of interest in Ireland.
