Educational Groups

Basing a youth group excursion at The Hutt Hostel is a great way to introduce kids to the Great Outdoors without having to spend a fortune.

Providing all the facilities required for a comfortable and enjoyable break
at a low price. The Hutt is situated at the foot of the Mourne Mountains, only yards to the beach,  5 minutes journey to Tollymore Forest Park and 10 minutes journey to Castlewellan Forest Park. Based in an area that provides the best outdoor activity spots in Northern Ireland, our hostel staff will either be able to help you organise some great team-building activities, or at least put you in touch with some reliable local providers who can help. We work closely with Life Adventure Centre, Castlewellan.
