Inisboffin, the island of legend and folklore, can be visited from nearby Cleggan.

Also a good base to visit the Aran Islands (45 min. from Rossaveal where the ferry operates)

    This Hostel is totally nice and has the best location if you are into seeing the countryside, astonishing mountainviews, climbing or hiking. There is no store, restaurant or village very close, so you should bring your own food, which you can cook in the big, new kitchen! You can ask the busdriver to stop at the gate of the hostel because there is no bus stop very close.
