Welcome to The Old Mill Holiday Hostel

The Old Mill Holiday Hostel is owned and run by the Carr family. It is set in an old courtyard, just off James Street, giving it a very central location in Westport, Co.Mayo. We hope you enjoy your time at the Old Mill and will return some day.

Built around C1780 the building has undergone many changes over the years. It was part of a network of warehouse buildings used as a brewery in the 18th century. It later served as a storehouse, animal shelter and slaughter house, a chicken hatchery and in 1991 was renovated and converted into a low budget holiday hostel. It has been welcoming visitors from all over the world ever since.
