Welcome to Django's.
Hi, I'm Django the hostel-dog, and I'd like to tell you all about my hostel and invite you to come and visit. As hostels go, it's pretty special....
It's in Cloughjordan, which is in North Tipperary, Ireland, very close to the Offaly border. It's a beautiful place, with historic sites, ancient woodlands and great food, really close to Lough Derg.
One of the most exciting things in Cloughjordan is The Village, Ireland's first ever eco-village development. The hostel is right at the heart of the eco-village, and like all the other homes there it has been built to the very highest ecological standard. The design, building materials and energy systems used here are all state-of-the-art for green living.
The hostel itself has 33 beds, in 11 en-suite rooms. Kids and dogs are welcome, and rates are reasonable. You can find all the details here. There are also rooms available to hire for courses, conferences, exhibitions and concerts. Take a look here for more details.
