Omagh Travel Guide
Being green is good, and a particularly green part of Northern Ireland can be found at the Omagh Hostel. It comes recommended by Jamble, a new mag whose tagline "green without the extreme" we rather like. The Omagh Hostel is a part hostel, part budget hotel and private double rooms start at a very reasonable £25 ($50).
The Omagh is not especially fancy, but it does pride itself on being both relaxing and inspiring, and being very green. They heat with biomass boilers, fruit and veg used at the hostel is organically grown on site, they recycle and compost everything in sight (guests usually not included!) and monitoring of energy usage has seen a consistent reduction.
The Omagh Hostel even has a cute blog called Banana Rambles which tells tales of life at the hostel, their pursuit of green-ness and even features poetry from previous guests. Now publishing your poetry isn't a service offered by too many hotels.
