Property Description

Flanagan's Village Hostel is a small, friendly hostel located on a working family farm in Doolin, Co. Clare. A seaside village famous for its proximity to the awe-inspiring Cliffs of Moher, Doolin is probably best known for its lively pubs where live Irish music can be heard each night and where musicians from all over the world flock to join in the spontaneous sessions. Your host, Gerard Flanagan, a Doolin native and musician, is known locally as a proponent of Doolin's music tradition, and many evenings in Flanagan's feature music sessions, lessons and impromptu set dances around the turf-burning stove in the hostel's flag-floored common room. Having a keen interest in local history and heritage, Gerard is delighted to share information and stories about Doolin that give his visitors a unique perspective on their stay
