Hello ! Im going to work for a time of four month (April to August) in the Mayo General Hospital in Castlebar ! Now im looking for a suitable room/ flat/ appartment for two persons ! It should be payable as I don´t get money for my work (elective)! Does anyone has an idea who is to ask or what to do? Thank you ! Jan
You could try www.daft.ie, or maybe you can even get someone at the hospital to put up a note for you on their notice board. I don't know about accommodation prices in Mayo, but I think it's safe to say that it won't be cheap anywhere in Ireland. Usually people share appartments or houses, and maybe you should consider that option. Good luck, Birgit
Rent should be dirt cheap in Castlebar, you should _definitely_ be able to get a room for under €50 / week. the most likely option is sharing a house in Castlebar and share the bills with the housemates. Try www.castlebar.ie or check the local papers when you get here. (am surprised u dont get paid for working, is that legal?) Orla
Thank you for your advice ! I ´m afraid it is legal that i don´t get paid (actually it has to be unpaid :( (silly study law)! I´m doing something like an internship (Elective)...i don´t know the exact translation! Anyway im looking very much foreward to my time in ireland!
