Surrounded by the beautiful Connemara countryside, Cong Hostel is between Lough Mask and Lough Corrib. Filming for the 1952 ‘The Quiet Man’ took place nearby. The Cong Hostel offers both private rooms with en-suite or shared bathroom facilities and beds in dormitory rooms. In the mornings, Cong Hostel offers light breakfast. There are many on-site facilities including a tennis court, children’s playground, a mini-market, and free WiFi. A nightly screening of The Quiet Man is shown in the mini-cinema. Just 24 miles from Westport, Cong is home to Ashford Castle and Cong Abbey. The nearby Quiet Man Cottage Museum is a tribute to the John Wayne film of the same name, which was filmed in the village. Guests can enjoy ghost tours, visits to caves, stone circles, and cairns. The surrounding area is ideal for fishing, boating, scenic walks, and golfing.
