Hi. My name is Karen & I own the Letterkenny Port Hostel. This is an International Backpackers Hostel. We get visitors from all over the world many of whom are visiting Ireland for the first time. Many are lone travellers, so we offer a huge welcome to make them feel like they are truly enjoying Irish hospitality and we offer many activities for a truly fun holiday. Fun events such as BBQ evenings, pub crawls & day trips organised. Party groups are always catered for and most of them come from the Irish market. A fun & enjoyable stay at the hostel is the message I wish to get across to visitors.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The hostel caters for all ages but mainly the 18-30 years age bracket who are travelling through Europe. Many Irish party groups stay here at weekends and I get a lot of repeat business from groups. Backpackers like to see a hostel which is lively & fun.
Cheap cheerful & fun holidays for travelling young people who are on a tight budget is the market I am rying to attract.
Basically, if you look at my existing website, you will see it is boring! I want to make it as attractive to a young aundience as possible. Currently it is predominantly blue, but I would like to see more green colours to try & push the 'Irishness' of the hostel.
Be as free as you want!! I am attaching some photos to give you an idea.
I need a landing page with the tabs for the rest of the site. And perhaps some national flags also.
The accommodation is shared twin, triple, 4 bed dorms 8 bed dorms, 10 beds & 16 bed dorms. The showers are communal. There are kitchen facilites to cook.
It is in the town centre but in a quiet cul de sac with surrounding gardens. I would like to incorporate as much as possible on to one main home page & then have a separate page for online bookings.
I just want the 'wow' factor for young people who are brousing looking for cheap cheerful & fun holidays! Thanks!!
