Had a great time and loved the people who worked here. My only problem was with the lack of traditional Irish music in the bars and restraunts on the island.

Thanks for your nice comments, there is loads of music on the islands. There is loads of music on the island but it is not allowed to bring young children into the bars late at night!

Very nice hostel. What makes it special is the staff working there. I've stayed for 3 nights and on my last day the shower in the room didn't work. It wasn't a big deal for me as an alternative was given to me. However the staff insisted on given me some money back as they felt bad for the inconvenience. That is top notch customer service ! The location is superb.

Loved my stay here. The staff was frienly and helpful. I loved Charles and Sunbreen. The hostel is close to pier and 2 minutes walk from the port. The island is a must-visit for anyone travelling to Ireland! I wish I could have stayed longer! Thank you for everything :D

Overall I had a pleasant stay at Kilronan Hostel, but I did not end up receiving the room which I had booked. I booked a 4-Bed Female Dorm Ensuite for two nights. The first night was fine as only one other female and myself were sharing the room. However, my second night, there were 6 people in the room, including one male. Doesn't seem like good policy to me.

We have 4 bed female only rooms. You booked a 6 bed mixed dorm!
