This is a well run hostel, the facilities are simple and basic, but everything is clean and comfortable. Above all it's friendly, it's like old-fashioned travelling used to be - everyone talks to each other as we meet briefly on our journeys. There's a wonderful woman in charge of this hostel, and she's helped by language students from various countries.... More

Very upmarket Hostel, friendly and helpful staff, the rooms were spacious and clean with a nice lounge for sitting in. Plenty of hot water and an ample well presented breakfast. Would definitely go back there again

Room (8) big enough and plenty of hot water. Ample parking. Uninspiring view of the side of a warehouse. Supermarket next door but one. We had a meal there and it was good. Self-catering facilities are fine for small groups doing simple meals. Big comfortable sitting area though only about 6-8 can sit at a table to eat at any... More

I was there as part of a very large party. All twenty of us were fed kindly, and on time, with an excellent meal within an hour of our early arrival. Alcohol was available for a reasonable fee and by direct request to our host. We bought a few bottles of excellent wine, though beer(s) was also available at cost... More

I know this place is run by volunteers and. I respect that but the description on the hotel app bore no resemblance to what actually existed. Firstly we spent nearly an hour driving up and down narrow roads looking for the place...it was so poorly sign posted, but when we got there we discovered there was no restaurant or bar... More

Like other reviewers here, I was the only guest at the Mourne Lodge for most of my stay and it was delightful! The Lodge is tidy, well-kept, well-stocked and even has reflective vests in case you're out at night. It's ideally located for hiking in the Mournes and especially for touring the Silent Valley. Mairead and Rachel were gracious hostesses... More

I only stayed for one night, and I was the only one there. I arrived at 6.30pm, there on the door was a lovely note from Mairead note and my keys, heating was on. Went into my double room and it was lovely. I let Mairead know that I had arrived, there was a shop just two minutes down the... More

We arrived late in a Friday night and were greeted by Mairead who couldn't help us enough, after a good night sleep she made us a wonderful breakfast. This is an ideal place to stay for an activity weekend as a couple or in a group, it was really easy to find and we wished we had more time to... More

I stayed at the Mourne Lodge at short notice as I was passing through the area. I got a bit lost trying to find it but the land lady was extremely helpful in giving me directions. I happened to be the only person staying at the hotel that night (it was actually Halloween and it wasn't at all spooky!) and... More
