Great atmosphere, calm and quiet village. Ideal for prople with own vehicle.


We had a nice big room with plenty of space (twin room). The hostel is very comfortable with a cosy dining room and lounge room. The kitchen needs more tea towels and needs to be renovated to provide better storage space. Hot water took a long time to come through when washing up. Some guests didn't keep the kitchen clean and so the kitchen needs to be better monitored by staff. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Overall, an enjoyable stay and plenty to do and see in the area.


We had a great time at the Burren Hostel. It is an excellent location to explore the environment (Burren, Arand Islands, The Cliffs, ...). The lady who is running the hostel is energetic and very customer oriented.

Thank you for your positive review Antonio - really appreciate it. Hope to see you again sometime. Aoibhinn


Perfect place to rest after a day hike at the Cliffs of Moher.


Definitely for backpackers and cyclists who are going to explore the countryside and don't mind the small, quiet town. The building's quite old (used to be a hotel) and has a charm about it. Our ensuite bathroom needed some work, but it was a good stay otherwise!


Friendly staff, clean accommodation. Unfortunately the showers were cold and the fire alarm kept going off through the night (approx 4 times - all were false alarms)
