Great hostel! It's fine and clean and there is everything you need. Gerard is the best host ever. Very friendly and helpful. I 'm looking forward to come back to stay in the hostel for several days. If you like Irish Music, you'll love The Flanagan's. Gerard is a wonderful musician (mandolin, harmonica and the spoons) and set dancer, who is part of the local music scene. He teaches music and set dance. It'll just take you two minutes to get to two pubs by foot.

Very recommendable hostel! It has a friendly atmosphere and the rooms are nice and clean. The owner, Gerard Flanagan, is verry friendly and helpful. He is a part of the Doolin music scene and knows what's going on in the local pubs, and he gives great advice for tours and sightseeing. He is a musician himself and can teach you the spoons or the mandolin. He also teaches set dance. So ask him, if your are interested. I enjoyed my stay in Gerards hostel very much and will certainly go there again!

Can recommend Flanagans Hostel very highly, thats the 2nd time I stayed there and will go back for sure. A very warm welcome at arrival, the owner is very friendly and helpful and gave me some great tips for nice walks around the area. In the evening you got the fire on and the owner will play some irish tunes. Great location as not right in the middle though only a short walk to pubs and seafront. Had a great relaxing time met nice peoeple and will be back soon, fantastic place.
