Property Description

The Old Mill Holiday Hostel is owned and run by the Carr family. It is set in an old courtyard, just off James Street, giving it a very central location in Westport, Co.Mayo. We hope you enjoy your time at the Old Mill and will return some day.

Built around C1780 the building has undergone many changes over the years. It was part of a network of warehouse buildings used as a brewery in the 18th century. It later served as a storehouse, animal shelter and slaughter house, a chicken hatchery and in 1991 was renovated and converted into a low budget holiday hostel. It has been welcoming visitors from all over the world ever since.

Room options for the Old Mill Holiday Hostel include;

Five x 4 bed dorms (some with optional 5th bed)
Two x 6 bed dorms (some with optional 7th bed)
One x 8 bed dorm
One x 12 bed dorm

The Old Mill Holiday Hostel offers clean and comfortable hostel accommodation, where the bedrooms feature the old stone walls and wooden beams refurbished to create a warm relaxing ambiance ensuring a calm mind and peaceful sleep.

Very Good

Dorm was a little smelly. I dont know but possibly linked to the toilets/septic system. Would be nice if there was a downstairs bathroom, perhaps I missed it. And perhaps they should hire more staff as only one person was there to check in and show the room to patrons. And hire someone to strip the beds please as its difficult when others are sleeping in the same room as you to do it quietly.

Reception was very friendly and helpful. The room was laid out nicely so you wouldn't be fighting with anyone trying to get ready. Code entry, stairs to get to the dorm. Place was cleaned and maintened fairly well. One wall plug in the dorm, that is it. Also the showers there is a button to press and you get maybe 10 or less seconds of water, and you have to press again. Can attempt to hold but that sucked no matter what, and no shelve/hanger in shower.
