The Middle Way Hostel

A hostel designed, built and run to help guests transition, purify and reconnect with nature and love. Our aim is to evoke joy and wonder and make your soul feel great.

Welcome to The Middle Way Hostel

Our mission is to breath life, balance and excitement into all who connect with us. Whether staying in our hostel, enjoying our retreats, learning in our workshops or listening to our podcast we are here to help.

Located right next door to the Westport Railway Station in the amazing town of Westport, (Voted ‘Best Place to Live in in Ireland’) our Middle Way mission is simple, to help our guests rejuvenate their minds, bodies and souls and have fun!

Where Inner Peace Meets Outdoor Adventure

We here at the Middle Way Hostel want to become the best Hostel in Ireland. To us, this means offering our guests a perfect holiday of relaxation and fun. You must destress the body and mind, mind and body as one.

Lounging by a pool all day under the sun sounds good in theory, but boredom will set in. Going camping is fun, but eventually you will miss your home comforts.

A perfect holiday should be one of balance. A mix of physical activity and nature with evenings of great food and deserved drinks.

Westport is voted "Best place to live in Ireland"
The Irish


Located right next door, The Middle Way Hostel is the first building you meet after you leave The Westport Railway Station; so no long walks with bags 🙂


Get back to nature with a challenging hike up Ireland’s holiest mountain located 5 miles from our front door.


We at The Middle Way Hostel are in the business of making people happy. A premium hostel with a charged spiritual atmosphere, we will do everything we can to offer our guests the experience they need.


We work better when we build together. Whether feedback
or comment we want to hear from you!
