Hostels for groups in Winter

We get lost of requests from groups for hostels in winter. For groups of 10 or more we will open our hostels during the winter season.


The benefits of staying in hostels during the winter in Ireland are:

  • Cost: Lower temperatures = lower rates
  • Exclusivity : You can often have the whole hostel to yourself
  • Stunning scenery : The landscape of Ireland has a serene quality during the winter
  • Quiet : the hills and trails are usually open and relaxing
