“good value for the money”
Reviewed October 14, 2006

This hostel is sheer delight for groups of students who like to cook for themselves, play the guitar, talk, in general feel at home in a clean and well kept house, where there is fresh homemade soda bread for breakfast... especially after the Croagh Patrick challenge! - I as the leader of the group am sure that this was not their last stay in Abbeywood!

Our family had a wonderful stay. The place is a short walk to town yet not in the middle of all the noise. The place is very clean and well kept. We had a private room on the first floor. I was impressed with the fact that the quiet hours are enforced. Which was really important to us as we had our two year old with us. Susan was very helpful at answering all of our questions.

Abbeywood is the nicest hostel of all the hostels that I have been to in Ireland. It makes for a nice quiet really enjoyable stay will easy access services like laundry, breakfast, Internet. The town is just five minutes walk away but it is enough out of the way to make for a good place to want to stay in the hostel to rest for a while probably because of its very nice living room.

I’m just back from a wonderful weekend in Westport. We stayed in an amazing hostel there– Abbeywood. Its about 3 minutes walk from the town centre but you feel like you are in the middle of the countryside as it is set in lovely mature gardens which separate it from the town. It’s a converted monastery and it still has a lot of the original features which add to its charm. It also has an eclectic mix of antique furniture so it doesn’t have the clinical feeling of hotels. You also get a great breakfast included in the price – homemade brown bread(yum), cereal, coffee/tea, juice. Susan, the girl who runs it is really friendly, helpful and relaxed. I have stayed in a lot of hostels in Ireland so this makes a refreshing change. The beds are really comfortable and the place is spotless too. Also if you are not into the whole dorm thing and want a bit of privacy, they offer 2/3/4 bed rooms.So if you are disillusioned with the Irish hostel scene or think you are too old for hostels(that was me!) THINK AGAIN.

Charming house near the town centre of Westport. Rooms were beautifully presented and we were made to feel very welcome. Susan was very helpful with advice on the local area- which made our stay fantastic.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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
