Located close to the picturesque seaside town of Moville, Inishowen, is Moville Boutique Hostel. Arriving at the site you will be welcomed by quirky colourful signage and an inviting exterior. Inside you will meet Cressida Canavan, Manager at Moville Boutique Hostel, who kindly gave me a tour of the property. For all of you that love your pets you will be delighted to hear that Moville Boutique Hostel is pet friendly. This little lady pictured below gave me a greeting as soon as I arrived.
Indoors you will find a games area, kitchen/dining room and for those of you who enjoy reading, there is a library on the second floor, pictured below, which overlooks the vibrant green woodland surrounding the property. At the property you will find a range of accommodation, with rooms that have unique themes and finishing touches. Adding to the charm of the building is traditional stonework found throughout the Boutique Hostel. This is a product of the conversion of the hostel from farm buildings originally located on the grounds.
One Of Irelands Oldest Bridges At Moville Boutique Hostel
A little gem on the grounds is a traditional stone bridge, argued by many to be one of Ireland’s oldest bridges. The bridge itself is thought to date from the 6th Century and according to legend was built by St Patrick who stopped here on his way to a nearby ancient site at Cooley. On the footage above, you can see the bridge and the peaceful grounds surrounding it.
For The Love Of Camping At Moville Boutique Hostel
An added bonus during your stay is the chance to see some of the adorable farm animals, pictured above, on their working farm located at the rear of the property. These animals include chickens, hens, geese, rabbits and goats. Stay posted for my next blog were I learn all about the work carried out between the Boutique Hostel and local communities in the area.
