We booked the first day online then stayed two more. Extremely clean and friendly. Beautiful well stocked kitchen where we cooked our meals. The area around Lough Arrow is breathtaking beautiful, full of ancient sites and holds a magical energy. Owners Mary and Craig became new friends the very first day.

Thanks for helping us out, when we accidentally booked the wrong date, the dutch sisters!


A little difficult to find, but once there it was nice. Very rural and relaxing. Staff (2 Spanish boys) were very kind, although the English was a little difficult occasionally. Comfy room. Place was nearly empty but apparently had hosted a stag party the night before, so it was a little disheveled and there was no beer in the bar! :( Owner very kind, very helpful with maps and suggestions. Suggested we visit the ancient Neolithic cairns nearby and showed us how to get there - Cool!


Nice team. Hostel quite old with one old small TV for all, in the bar. Free pool.


We wanted a place calm without lots of people and a safe park car because our car was full of luggages.. And we found it! If you come to relax, talk with people, walk around the lake! This place is for you. We had a lovely bedroom with a sink. The shower and the toilet wasn't too far! It was perfect! It's like a family house. The only thing is that we can't lock the door.

Pleased you enjoyed our hostel. Yes it's a quiet yet beautiful corner of Ireland! You can't lock the door? Did we not give you a key? Sorry about that but we never lock our car or house around here so sometimes we forget ;-) Hoping you enjoyed your visit to Ireland!


It was a wonderful and charming stay in your hostel. We are sure to see you again.
