Property Information:

Our small hostel is family run, in the heart of Doolin. It is a traditional farmhouse built in the 18th century. The Rainbow Hostel was established in 1986 with just 12 beds. The building was sympathetically renovated in Spring 2003 into a simple, easy going, warm, friendly and bright coloured hostel. We have kept the high pine wood ceilings (traditional farmhouse style) in the common room and in all the bedrooms. This allows for a better circulation of air in the rooms and this, incorporated with under floor heating, creates a healthy warm room in which to relax and sleep in.

Facilities: Common room with turf fire stove, self catering kitchen, private twin and double en suite bedrooms, mixed and private dormitory bedrooms (all en suite), our twin room has one double and single bed with its own shower and toilet, free hot showers and towels, washing and drying facilities, WiFi free of charge. Discount bike hire, free guided walk and slide show of local area, available free to hostel guests, free car parking and bicycle lock up.

Local Activities: Visit Doolin Cave, Ferries to Aran Islands/Cliffs of Moher, Burren Walks, Pitch/Putt, Golf, Rock Climbing, Caving, Cycling, Horse Riding, Archaeological/Heritage sites, Surfing, Angling, Diving.

Rainbow Hostel is situated in the heart of the village beside some of Doolins famous traditional music pubs, restaurants and craft shops We can help organise your visit to Doolin, the Burren area, Cliffs of Moher and the Aran Islands with local maps and advice on the best sites and activities during your stay with us. We hire bikes with 30% discount to our own guests. We also give a free two-hour free guided heritage walk in the Burren landscape of Doolin at evening time or by request for those staying with us.

    I stayed for nearly two weeks in this lovely hostel. The owners Mattie and Carmel are welcoming, accommodating, and hugely knowledgeable about the area of the Burren - Mattie even took us on a tour of the Eco Park. The hostel has a warm, communal feel, very laid-back, clean and comfortable. Great location, excellent for a walking holiday or a quiet country getaway. Can't recommend enough.
