The Old Monastery Hostel opened in 1990 and since that time has built up
a well deserved reputation for warmth and hospitality. The owner, Stephen
Gannon, has created a relaxed and cosy atmosphere in a rambling country house
originally built by Quakers in the 1840’s. A collection of artworks
created by guests adorns the hallway; the spacious self catering kitchen
adjoins a comfortable living room with couches beside the open fire for cuddling
up on, candles on the mantelpiece and a majestic view over the village of
Letterfrack towards Tully Mountain and out across the sea to Inish Bofin.
The Old Monastery Hostel is located in the heart of North Connemara and
is the perfect base from which to explore the surrounding area whether you
enjoy walking, cycling, boating or just relaxing by the fireside with a good
book. We invite you to come and stay with us to make your holiday in Connemara
an enjoyable and memorable experience.
