Welcome to Carrowmena Activity Centre & Hostel
Carrowmena Activity Centre & Hostel was opened in March 2009 by award-winning entrepreneur Charlotte Miller as a new and unique activity centre offering budget accommodation for all. Charlotte is passionate about the outdoors and has a young and enthusiastic staff who bring lots of energy to the centre.
Carrowmena Activity Centre & Hostel was originally built back in 1936 as Carrowmena Primary School with just 35 pupils and 2 teachers. Since it has re-opened as Carrowmena Activity Centre and Hostel, it has been nomiated for Roe Valley Business Awards 2010,’Best Rural Business’. Charlotte herself has been nominated for ‘Young Entrepreneur’ & ‘Female Entrepreneur’ awards, and in 2011 Charlotte won ‘Young Entrepreneur of the Year’
