Alternative Groups

Whether you’re a musical group that is travelling to a concert or festival, or a religious group that wants to combine exploration of a new place with your faith, or a counselling youth group that needs a relaxing, private place to do what you do best, we’ve got you covered! The needs of our groups, no matter what your style is, always come first.

Away from the distractions of the city and modern life, An Óige’s countryside hostels make the ideal destination for retreats. Many are in the most picturesque and tranquil locations, making them perfect for quiet comtemplation in a natural environment. Our larger hostels even contain meeting rooms and private rooms which are suitable for study or discussion, and all accommodation is available at rates which should suit your budget.
Our city locations are ideal for groups attending concerts, musicals or any theatre.

We will accommodate the needs of everyone where we can, so any requirements your group may have, please let us know and we will do our utmost to make sure all members of your group have a comfortable, fun and fulfilling time staying with us at our group hostels.
