Russagh Mill Hostel and Adventure Centre

Russagh Mill Hostel and Adventure Centre


A former mill ingeniously transformed into a hostel, this is a fun place to be. Located just one mile from Skibbereen, enjoy all the live music, good eats, and thrills of the town, staying at a place that is easy on your pocketbook. The hostel attracts the adventurous crowd of all ages. The summer nights we stayed there were happening, with a sangria party on the patio one night, and a dessert-liquor chill out session in the sunroom the next. The mill is were all travelers converge to share conversation and stories from the road.

I found a spacious, quiet corner here and was able to get a ton of writing done. There is free wireless access on the ground floor.

The hostel also hosts Adventure Week for 8-15 year olds, four days in the summer of kayaking, climbing, abseiling, orienteering, archery, team challenge, raft building, snorkeling, the list goes on.

This is a great hostel for Ireland Group Vacations, or a good place to meet new friends if you are flying solo.
