Volunteers are the heart of our house..


Give the greatest gift of all, your time. 

House Volunteers play an important role in the day-to-day operations of the Ronald McDonald House®. They provide administrative support, help keep our House clean and tidy, offer family support and greet families with welcoming smiles and listening ears. House Volunteers serve for 4 hours weekly or bi-weekly and must be 18 years or older.

Volunteers are the heart of our House. By helping us provide comfort and support to families through sharing of their time and talents, our volunteers bring life into our walls. 

We have a variety of opportunities and schedules available for volunteers. Whether you want to volunteer on a corporate, school or personal level please register your interest by filling out the Volunteer Form below.

Cooking4Families Program

Becoming a Cooking4Families Volunteer!

Through our Cooking4Families Program volunteers provide meals for families, allowing them to eat together without the stress of cooking or the expense of dining out.

Our goal is to provide a meal for our families every day of the week. You can help us by cooking a meal at our House in our fully equipped kitchens.

As a “Cooking4Families” volunteer, your group plans your menu, shops for menu items, and prepare meals in the House kitchen for our Families. 

Volunteer Story

Seán Mahon

Seán started volunteering for The Ronald McDonald House in 2010. After recovering from a serious illness he decided he wanted to do something more with his time as he was unable to return to his career as a chef.

I didn’t just want to give up and do nothing. I was a Chef and Craftsman all my adult life. I went along to a volunteer agency on Thomas St in Dublin where they told me that The Ronald McDonald House was looking for someone to cook a lasagne!

Seán did not know anything about RMHC and was surprised to find that he lived very close by so he went along to cook a meal for the families staying at the House. Six years and countless meals later Seán is one of our most dedicated volunteers.

Families always look forward to Seán’s Friday Roast, as they are for many the taste of home.

“Seán cooked in the house every Friday when we were there over 3 years ago and again 2 years ago. I just can’t believe he is still giving up his time to provide delicious meals for families who so appreciate it! Thank you Seán for all your hard work!” Mum, Ciara Byrne Doran Co.Wexford.

“How I miss your Friday roast dinners and apple tart, Seán! I particularly miss all the cooking tips you used to give me.” Mum, Siobhán Drohan Co. Waterford.

Seán has been a wonderful friend to The Ronald McDonald House. We cannot thank him enough for all he does.
