There was mold within the sleeping rooms. The room was OK, but not very clean. The bathroom was OK, but also not very clean. No breakfest included. The location was quite in Doolin. And the view on the countryside was very nice. I wouldnt book here again.

The owner only accepts cash, and there is no ATM in the whole town. Please remember to bring cash. It's got a really nice view of the fields and gives a really authentic country feeling. I would recommend it if you're on a budget. It is not dirty, and feels very homely. The owners are kind but the downsides are the cash-only and the bad location, as it is a good walk from town (maybe 15 minutes).
Flanagan's is homey and very welcoming. Gerard is great and a wonderful host! He made us feel very welcome and provided great tips about the Burren, the Cliffs, and Doolin. A simple breakfast was provided and was ample to start our day. The room was cozy and warm, with clean linens and a hot shower. Gerard accepts cash for payment so be sure to stop at a cash machine before arriving in Doolin. Overall a great stay!
Super warm and clean hostel, just minutes from the cliffs and shore of the ocean. The owner's truly wonderful and a great host, leaving us with a lovely impression of Ireland. There's plenty of nearby pubs with delicious full Irish breakfasts and large portioned dinners & lunches- make sure you check out O'Connors for food, it's fantastic.
I really enjoyed staying here! The hostel was clean and the owner made our comfort and safety a priority.

Gerard is awesome! Loved my stay at his hostel. He was really friendly and helpful. The place was clean and the other hostelers were really nice. I was impressed. You can get on the Burren Way trail, it's a really nice hike if you wanna go to the Cliffs.
Had 2 good nights here, lovely people. Hostel rather basic but perfectly fine and a great oven to cuddle with in winter
Flanagan's hostel is the nicest place I have stayed during my trip to Ireland. It's clean, cozy and charming. The staff is very friendly and informative, if I make my way back to Doolin I will definitely stay there again.
