Are you a group of family and friends just wanting to get away for a few days by the sea? Need somewhere to celebrate a birthday or hold a reunion without breaking the bank? Perhaps you're looking for a base for a walking or special interest holiday in an area that artists find so inspiring and is rich in wildlife and history. We're not suitable for all groups (see below) but if you're looking for somewhere to really get away from the hurly-burly of the modern world for a while then The Old School Hostel, Trefin may be just the place you are looking for.
Our rooms sleep from 2 to 6 and should you wish, the whole hostel can be rented for your exclusive use at very reasonable rates. Even if you don't fill every bed the price per head still represents excellent value for money. We seem particularly popular with groups of 10 to 12. They enjoy having the whole place to spread out and relax in and to come and go as they please.
The ground floor of the building also incorporates the village hall and groups have used this for yoga and walking holidays, a venue for nature talks and arts activities and children's birthday parties. It's available for hire at very low cost - give us a call to discuss your requirements and see our links page for contact details of children's entertainers, walking holidays etc.
Christmas and New Year.
Where better?! Well, Barbados maybe, but we offer a cheaper way of getting away from it all! We'll supply the tree and the ambience; you bring your family and friends. Minimum stay over Christmas is three nights. Minimum stay over New Year is three nights.
You can book a selection of rooms or the whole hostel.
A group booking 3 rooms sleeping up to 12 for example would cost in the region of £170 per night.
Exclusive use of the hostel is yours for £225 per night (£250 over Bank Holiday weekends, the main School Summer holiday, Christmas and New Year.)
For whole hostel cancellations made between 1 and 2 months prior to the booking date a refund is made less the deposit of 20%. For cancellations made within 1 month and 2 weeks of the arrival date a refund of 50% of the total cost of your stay is made. For cancellations received less than 2 weeks prior to the booking, or if we receive no notice of the cancellation, we reserve the right to claim up to the full cost of your stay.
A final word.
The emphasis at The Old School Hostel is on rest and relaxation and we're afraid we're not a good location for certain youth groups due to lack of facilities (such as a TV and games room) or if you're planning a boisterous stag or hen do and like to stay up partying into the wee small hours. Sorry to be party poopers. We're just not that sort of place and we're in the centre of the village and need to respect our neighbours. We know of other excellent venues nearby though which may be just the job. Phone us for recommendations.
