A youth hostel in Glendalough has announced it will reopen its doors after being closed for two years due to the pandemic.
Glendalough International Hostel will begin a “phased reopening” from 1 March.
The hostel is operated by An Óige – the Irish Youth Hostel Association, which it says, provides safe, affordable accommodation and travel experiences to those travelling Ireland as backpackers, groups, or families.
The CEO of the non-profit organisation said he was “delighted and excited” about Glendalough being the first of their hostels to reopen.
“We’ll continue to monitor the situation and provide updates on further reopenings,” said David Owens. “For the moment, we’re content with being able to reopen our first hostel in almost two years and try to ride out the rest of the pandemic as best we can.”
