College Societies

College Societies

There are plenty of societies to join, where you indulge in your favourite hobby and make some friends while doing so, but you can’t spend all your time talking about your hobbies in the student union bar – you’ll want to get out there as a group and enjoy them together. An Óige is the easy and affordable option for trips away!

Our hostels are ideal for student society activity breaks. Not only are they perfectly placed in the most popular destinations for outdoor activity breaks, our hostels also have a mix of facilities to suit your needs. From self-catering to low cost meal options and hostels for large groups to single-room accommodations for smaller ones. Our hostels come with a wide range of extra offerings, including study areas, drying rooms and social areas.

From the best surfing spots on the Waterford and Donegal coast, to the climbing challenges of Kerry and Wicklow, from the water sports havens of Errigal and Killarney, to the fabulous walking routes of the Wicklow Way and Connemara, An Oige has hostels everywhere you want to be. Oh, and of course our prices are perfect for the student pocket, too!
