HOSTELS & CHECKPOINTS

We are using three official hostels as part of the Pan Celtic Race 2019, offering fine hospitality in fantastic locations.

Our first 50 riders will be staying in the Highland Backpackers Hostel, located in the centre of Inverness with everything close by. We have booked out the Hostel for 6th July. There are also lots of accommodation options in Inverness for those not staying at this hostel.

Checkpoint 1 is at Ullapool Youth Hostel, in the Scottish Highlands with spectacular views over Loch Broom and the Beinn Dearg mountain range. There is no accommodation provided at this checkpoint, however riders are able to make their own booking. Riders will be able to grab a shower, freshen up, etc. by using the facilities of the Race team. These are shared and may be subject to waiting in-line.

Checkpoint 2 is at Glendalough International Hostel, in South East Ireland, set in a stunning valley within the Wicklow Mountains National Park. We have booked a 6-bed hostel room from 9th – 14th July so riders can take a few hours sleep. If riders want to stay longer at this hostel, it’s advised to book a separate bed.
