Excellent hostel with an atmosphere you will not find easy anywhere else. The location is great and the people are very friendly (it is run by volunteers).

My daughter and I had a wonderful stay. The volunteer staff are friendly and helpful. The location could not be better for outdoor pursuits. The newly renovated kitchen is well equipped and clean. There's ample hot water at all times. My one suggestion is that the second living room, which was used as an informal "drying room" during our stay, should be turned into a proper drying room - take out the seats, put in a few drying racks and a heater. An outdoor pursuits hostel in Connemara needs it.

Great atmosphere in what must be one of the best spots in Ireland for access to superb mountain walking. The Twelve Bens offer dry walks to great views with the Maamturks and the best walking in Ireland only 15 km away. Knowlegable warden and a good crowd not averse to a bit of craic - I'll be back.

We enjoy a wonderful weekend at Ben Lettery Hostel. We drove around scenic Connemara on Saturday and climbed Ben Lettery mountain on Sunday. The scenery is amazing. The hostel is run by volunteers who told us the best hiking routes and scenic drives. A warm fire every night with good fun and story telling. The volunteers were busy installing a shiny new kitchen when we were there. We will be back!
