Very clean and large rooms for a hostel. Plenty of parking. Nice little café in the reception. Great water pressure in the shower. Generous breakfast. Only would change the laundry situation to make it cheaper and more convenient.

Extremely friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms with bedding provided, spacious bathrooms with never-ending hot water for showers, and a large kitchen with a delicious breakfast. I couldn't have asked for more! I will certainly be returning to this hostel in the future and will recommend it to anyone I know who wants to visit Doolin. Thank you for making my stay amazing!!

This was BY FAR the best hostel I ever stayed in! Everything was freshly painted and the hosts were fabulous :D We had a problem with our shower the first day, but Andrew fixed it until we were back. He also gave us a lot of additional information about what to do and where to go. If you want to enjoy beautiful Doolin, stay here! It's worth every cent :D wish we could have stayed longer :D. Thanks again for having us!

The staff was so nice and the hostel is the trailhead for the cliffs which was awesome! Our rooms were very comfortable and clean as well. I would absolutely stay here again!

Thank you for your review and so happy to hear you took advantage of the Cliffs of Moher Hiking Trail which starts at the Doolin Hostel. The 12km of Cliffs is such a breath taking walk and much more than just the visitor center in the middle. I always recommend taking the bus from Doolin Hostel to the Rock Shop at the other end and walk the 16 km back to the hostel. (Take a packed lunch with you and have a picnic on the cliffs). Glad you enjoyed your stay. Warmest regards Anthony

Loved my stay here enough to book an extra night. Very clean, great location, and excellent staff. So very friendly and helpful. I'd definitely recommend! Breakfast included too! What more could you want. We had brown bread, toast and jelly, cut mixed fruits, three cereals to choose between, yogurt, fruits juices, and an assortment of toppings for the yogurt. Excellent hostel! Thank you.

So happy you enjoyed our new healthy continental breakfast buffet, it is really geared towards those who want to go hiking and sight seeing for the day giving them plenty of energy. Also delighted that you enjoyed our new kitchen which we upgraded over the winter months as well as adding more touches to our bedrooms. Thanks for the feedback. Warmest regards Anthony

Excellent Hostel with a very friendly staff who will help you with whatever you need! The rooms are great, and everything is kept very clean! The Hostel is very cheery and also situated right at the bus stop. That was very convenient! I would definitely recommend a stay here!

Have nothing to complain about. Staff was very friendly and helpful giving us tips on the area... We were there in the middle of March so they've just finished refurbishing. Everything was very clean, there is a nice fireplace in the common room, a big kitchen (very rich breakfast included). Overall, the place to stay if you are staying in Doolin, the hostel is located just at the star of the path which leaded to the Cliffs of Moher. It is around 8km long walk- DO NOT MISS IT!

Thank you for your review and delighted you enjoyed our new free breakfast. We have enlarge the continental breakfast adding a lot of fresh, dried and stew fruit, along with having soya milk on stand by to keep it vegan friendly or for dietary requirements. We also just added a new stove over the winter to make our lounge as cosy as possible on these crisp spring evenings. Warmest regards Anthony
