At last -meet the new arrivals
Yes, we’ve been keeping it a bit of a secret but we’re proud to shout it from the rooftops now. The addition of three new hostels from the Sleepzone Hostels clan in the west of Ireland – Galway City, The Cliffs of Moher and Connemara, means we now have a traditional big Irish family of 10. That’s ten hostels all over Ireland boasting 2,500 beds now on both sides of the Shannon. Come one – ‘introduce us…’ (you say, digging your elbow into our side!!).
First of all, meet our Galway brother. Based right in Eyre square, it’s on the doorstep to one of Ireland’s liveliest cities. Sleepzone Galway City is spacious, with over 200 beds in en suite rooms, and offers a large, fully equipped self-catering kitchen and outdoor terrace. You get free internet and WiFi access, so bring your laptops for free wireless surfing. Not only that but throw in 24 hour reception, self-service laundry, bureau de change, luggage lockers and safety deposit boxes.
Next up is our new rustic cousin in the wilds of Connemara. Built in the late 1800s – The Connemara Hostel, a former hunting lodge has now been converted into one of the most comfortable hostels anywhere in Europe. It has over 100 beds in 21 en suite rooms – both private and dormitory. It overlooks the incredible Killary Fjord and has everything from… deep breadth now…… residents’ lounge, free internet and Wi-Fi access, TV room, self-catering kitchen, outdoor terrace, its own tennis court and access to a range of organised outdoor adventure pursuits on its doorstep. The hostel also has a library with travel books, and books of Irish interest.…exhale…
And finally, our cool new sister in the Burren. Situated in the amazing county of Clare, The Burren Hostel is a real looker (!) and is on the doorstep of some of Europe’s most beautiful scenery. Formerly a 3 star hotel, we’ve lost none of the star quality and it has a brilliant range of facilities from a cosy residents’ lounge to conference room and spacious guest kitchen and dining room. Add in Laundry and drying facilities, free parking and Internet and you’ll see why our sis in The Burren gets all the attention.
No matter where you are in Ireland, if you’re staying in a Celtic Group Hostel, you’re guaranteed first class accommodation, genuine local knowledge and a trip you’ll never forget.
