We got a room on the ground floor next to the entry, that's why it was very loud. The breakfast was lovely (with not only toast an jam, but sodabread, joghurt, fruits and cereals) and the staff was friendly.


One of the nicest and sweetest hostels (and villages!) I'd ever stayed in. Was in a 6 female dorm but it felt like a cozy B&B, which I loved. Pretty, clean, homey. The BEST coffee and kitchen I'd ever seen in a hostel. Staff really nice and helpful. I loved Doolin itself as well. Looking forward to returning!

We are delighted you to hear you enjoyed your stay so much and rated us so highly among all the hostels you have ever stayed in and that you found our home so cozy. It means a lot to us and don't wait too long to return :-) Warmest regards Anthony and Deirdre


We came during the off-season, mid-October, and this is the best hostel we've been to yet! Great staff, very accommodating, helped us out with finding things to do in the area, even made us pizza when the cafe was technically closed! This was one of the highlights of the trip so far. Thank you for a wonderful time.

It was great to you stay with us and great to hear you enjoyed the Pizza. We enjoyed having you stay with us and great to hear you found all out tips and guidance helpful. Warmest regards Anthony and Deirdre


This hostel was nothing, but excellent! One of the best hostels I stayed in... Anthony and David just worked so hard all day to make sure everyone is comfortable, the place is clean, everyone is helped with questions etc. There was not a moment that they were not catering to the guests' comfort... The place is very clean, green and comfortable. Location is also great, the room was spacious and bed was comfortable. The breakfast is very healthy and there are lots of choices of good stuff.
