Welcome to our hostel

Take a relaxing break in the beautiful lakeside village of Cong and stay in the 4-star Cong Hostel.

A modern, purpose built hostel near the beautiful lakes of Loughs Corrib, Cara and Mask. The area is rich in history, with St Patrick's Church, Cong Abbey and Ashford Castle nearby and archaeology with Stones Circles and High Crosses. Perhaps the proudest claim to fame is that Cong was the setting for the film "The Quiet Man".

Rooms are en-suite rooms with family rooms and double rooms available and breakfast available. Launderette facilities are also available seven days a week. There is a nightly showing of "The Quiet Man" film to residents also. With 62 beds, our Cong Hostel caters for large groups, families, individuals and couples.

In 5weeks of travel this was the only accommodation where we did not feel welcome. The place was run down and the staff less than helpful. It has great potential but from our experience I would not recommend this place to anyone.

Among 5 Irish hostels I stayed in, not one of the best. But it was still perfectly fine. Local nature offerings nice but inferior to elsewhere in west Ireland. Best was when co-manager Chris recommended that I visit Kinsale (for south of Ireland).--This was inspired and worked out brilliantly! Kitchen mostly fine, but seemed crowded (esp with groups of French teenagers). Sitting room very nice. International phone was nice. Rooms felt crowded, and would have preferred option of single-sex dorm.
