We hired this centre for a whole weekend for our workshop. Reason we selected this centre was it is suited under Benwiskin/ Benbulben Mountain and it was really appropriate for our workshop. Eg quiet, scenery, nature and Peaceful. We were delighted with the facilities it is an excellent centre. Staff very friendly and helpful.

A fantastic place, part hostel, part community centre, with numerous awards for its positive actions to reduce its environmental impact. Amazing landscape. Rugged mountains with amazing Atlantic beaches less than 10minutrs drive away. Well stocked Super Valu supermarket in Grange means it's easy to conjure up magnificent meals using the well equipped kitchen.

Spacious, clean and well-stocked kitchen. Clean, well maintained property in a beautiful location. The bedroom was ideal, with ensuite. Heating was turned on for a very cool summer night. The place is pretty well sign posted and easy to find.

We rented out the whole place for a load of friends and family. There were 25 of us and we had a great time. The place was clean and tidy markedly so since it basically is a hostel. The rooms are mainly single bunk beds I think there were only two double beds. They make a very great effort to... More

We had a large family room with en suite bathroom. Our boys were very pleased with their bunk beds. The staff made our boisterous boys feel welcome by getting out toys and they were soon having a kick about in the garden. The centre is spotless and the residents respectful of one another. Will definitely be staying there again, next... More
