COVID-19 Update

An Óige hostels will be remaining closed in 2021 but we are aiming to open in Spring 2022.

The continued Covid -19 social distancing and hygiene protocols severly limit how we can safely accommodate the young people who are our charity’s target beneficiaries. These restrictions reduce the bed capacity of dorm rooms and negatively affect our hostels’ financial viability.

We have decided instead to focus on evaluating and investing in our hostels and preparing for the 2022 season.

Please keep checking this website for the latest updates.

We look forward to welcoming you back in 2022!

Some of our franchised hostels remain open and can be booked through their own sites:
