“The choice is yours: this is the low-cost, low-fi place.”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Stayed: April 2010. Home-made brown bread. The host was very nice to use, friendly and easy going. She was putting together a small chest of drawers when we arrived, which was funny. The showers were kind of small, difficult to move in them. It's clear that this is an old-ish place with a specific atmosphere, maybe could benefit from a refurbishment.

A hidden gem, only minutes from town, spacious, rambling, a unique place to stay; if those walls could talk, what a marvellous story they could tell. Both Lorna and Efa looked after us splendidly especially as we had arrived with no prior booking. Thank you girls.

My sister and I had the pleasure of staying in this lovely house recently. We had a four bedded room all to ourselves, which was very clean and exactly what we needed after a great night out in Westport. The location is excellent for exploring all the delights that Westport has to offer. Comfort, friendly staff and good value for money makes this a great find and a place that I will definetly be back to!

'Just' out of town in westport ... by a few mins walk. Easy parking. Next to school / disused community hall? You can easily miss the sign if coming in from the Sligo. Definitely seen better days - if you're looking for a hostel with 'all the mod cons' this is not it. 2 floors, mixture of double room, family room, 4/10 bed dorm. Bathrooms, average. Lounge is a nice space, with free wifi all downstairs. But my favourite thing was the breakfast space. Classical music and jazz coming through from the kitchen. Great continental brekkie to help yourself too. Hostel, with character, with no lockable space, with no need to move your car when the parking kicks in in the morning. 10 man dorm was £18 / 20 euros. Quieter than the central hostel in town.

Room Tip: The double room downstairs looked quite nice, not sure if it was cheaper than a b and b. If I were i...

This hostel is inside a really beautiful building - I can't quite remember the history of it but was it some sort of convent once?! I am not sure. It was lovely though, and great to stay somewhere interesting and special. It was clean and had lovely wooden floors, and a huge sort of sitting room with a mosaic feature on the wall if I remember correctly. There were stain glass windows too! The room we had was great - clean, spacious, comfortable. You get a basic breakfast included which is a fabulous touch, although when I say basic it doesn't really do it justice as a lady called Marina's amazing homemade bread is on offer. Sean was the other member of staff who worked there at the time and was very friendly and helpful - he even shared his dinner with me! Thanks! Overall, interesting place, good rooms, friendly staff, clean, and a lovely breakfast. The only downside was that I was vaguely spooked out by the place during the night... but perhaps that was just me!! Westport itself is worth a brief visit too.

What do you look for in a place to stay? Do you find hotels too expensive? B&Bs too claustrophobic and hostels too communal? Abbeywood gives you the best of all three...A former monastery, still retaining many of its original features such as stained glass windows, polished wood floors and high ceilings. Its situation, set in off the road in its own grounds makes it hard to believe it's so close to the centre of town. Come see us! ... more   less
