Contacting Us

Lough Dan Scout Centre is run and managed entirely by volunteers. Because of this replies to queries, enquiries and requests for staff lead activities may take a little time.

The best way to contact us is via email. If your query is urgent or can’t be answered over email then you can call us on the number below.

All bookings are made on-line on our web-site where there is a calendar to show availability. Go to bookings, choose the option you require (hostel, camping etc) put your dates into the pop-up calendar and if they are available complete the contact details and submit the booking. When you submit a hostel booking you are committing to pay a deposit which is only refundable if a cancellation is received in a timely fashion of 4-6 weeks prior to the date of the event.

NB. The booking system will only accept Hostel booking on a weekend for two nights.

For all bookings you will receive an automated confirmation of booking with a reference number. Please quote this reference number on all correspondence, checks and when making EFT payments as for those choosing the hostel option a deposit will be requested to secure the booking.
