Very friendly staff! Quiet and relaxing place.


Great hostel in the wonderful Burren landscape. Very nice to stay at! Pat and the other staff were really concerned about our well-being and always there to answer a question. In the morning you get homemade bread; in the evenings you have to cook yourself which was enjoyable as the kitchen is well equipped and clean. Thanks a lot for everything!


Very friendly and helpful. Nice clean facility's with every thing provided. Bit off the beaten track but wasnt any other accommodation nearby in the area, local hotel had nice meals.


Comfortable family room, big kitchen, helpfull staff and pleasant atmosphere in this hostel. Nice place to stay while visiting Burren !


There was no-one at reception when we arrived, and we had to sit and wait until someone came. The hostel was clean and excellent value for money, with a well-equipped kitchen and good wifi!


The shower could only be set to one temperature, fixed at the hostel. It was too hot, and we could not get any bath ;-(


Really enjoyed our stay at Clare's Rock Hostel! Getting there was a bit of an adventure, but Pat is a wonderful host and made our stay very comfortable. He's full of local knowledge and is generous with his time and information about things to see and do in the area. Even though it was a bit rainy when we were there, we still managed to see and do loads of things! Thanks for a great stay! Looking forward to coming back.


What a great residence! Pat Cassidy was a generous host and made sure we were welcomed in the area by informing us of Gaelic football matches, live pub sessions and the best trails through the Burren. He even let us do laundry in the office! Would highly recommend Clare's Rock Hostel for a quiet, "authentic Irish" stay for travelers looking to hike, enjoy the craic and see beautiful Ireland.
