Stunning views and good hikes in the nationalpark! Breakfast was amazing with homemade brownbread!


Very nice and helpful staff and very good contact with the hostel. The hostel is well situated: near a bus stop, a few steps from a heart of Connemara National Park with Diamond Hill and a not too many kilometres from two main tourist attractions of this beautiful part of Ireland: Kylemore Abbey and the Renvyle Peninsula.


Really enjoyed my stay at the bards den, great place, good bar food, and a good base to explore conamara.

When we arrived at about 7 pm., our hostess showed us our private room ensuite, then wanted we paid her now because she was also working in the restaurant. We did it... but finally we didn't have any water in our room, not in the evening. And nobody was here in the morning, and we left without any explication. Furthermore, the towels were not very cleaned... If we come back to Letterfrack, we won't book here. It was the same price than a B&B. Good luck.

Nice place to stay. Shower is a bit old an room needs some ventilation. However, it is clean more or less and it is a nice place with good atmosphere and great staff.
