It is a good accomodation. It is close the main attractions in Connemara.

Big dorm rooms, well-stocked kitchen, lots of fun hang out areas. The location is beautiful as long as you can reach it. Only problem was the lack of safe water from the taps. We could not even use it wash dishes or wash our teeth, had to be either bottled or from the boiler. A decent inconvenience at times, hopefully can be fixed.


Stunning location and very easy relaxed place to stay. Occasionally there are large groups in the hostel but they did not feel intrusive and the staff were very solicitous at making sure there was a quiet place for breakfast if there was a group. It's an old building so some things were slightly quirky eg plumbing. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Would recommend.

This is such a lovely hostel. The staff is very friendly; I even caught some names and had some conversations. The location is perfect, out of the way of everything and right by the fjord. There were some quirks, like the water wasn't drinkable (which is NOT a normal thing, it had just happened, so it'll probably be drinkable when you're there) and I had to wait a while for a receptionist to check me in, but I felt right at home anyway. Also, wifi worked great. And there's plenty of tea!


+ Nice hostel in picturecque place. A lot of space and big public rooms. Real peat chimney in dinig room wich is realy enjoyable in rainy days. Tolerant alcohol policy. - Pure aviability by public transport. You will defently need a car or at list a bike to visit places of interest all around.

If scenic is what you want look no further, breathtaking location in the Conemmara national park and the friendly staff are happy to offer their knowledge for the best hikes in the area. A must if you're staying in Conemmara!


The staff was very kind and the place nice, 10 minutes from Kylemore Abbey.


this hostel was great! the staff was really nice and willing to help, also there was a tv room, a very clean and fully equipped kitchen, a dining room, a bar, a room for your food with fridges,.. so this was just perfect! great landscapes, but not really close to the national park in connemara. and another thing: we had mould in our dorm. that's the part i did not like about the hostel. but except this, i had a wonderful stay here :)


Although it was lashing all the way down to the hostel and it barely stoped at some stage we were in Connemara, we had a awesome time! Welcomed with a towel to try ourselfs we checked in. We used the time to relaxe and wash our clothes (thanks again!)and enjoyed ourselfs. Which was very easy in such a cosy house. :) Then during the night my friend felt very sick. So we asked to stay a bit longer in the room. It was no problem and they cared so much about us. Awesome staff!!Keep up the good work!


Nice hostel in the middle of nowhere, which is great because of the beautyful landscape. Cosy common room and a dining room with nice view. Wifi could be better, it works just in the common room. There are a lot of french tourists, so it's a great advantage if you are able to speak french.


Nice place in an amazing location. Experience was not excellent since security code system at dormitory entrance door get blocked often and people were not able to enter in. Even staff was not able to fix it so we had to leave door open in the night to let people coming back.
