we had a great time there, did the Great Fjord swim so the location was perfect. Our room was beside the sitting room so that was a bit noisy, but staff were lovely and the place was very clean and atmosphere was warm and friendly.

Very nice stay at the connemara hostel. Staff was friendly and helpful, clean and spacious bedrooms. The only problem was that there wasn't enough hot water for everyone to shower in the evening.


This hostel is the most wonderful place I've ever stayed.The location is great. The atmosphere is magical.

Very nice and helpful staff and very good contact with the hostel. The Connemara Sleepzone is situated in an extremely beautiful scenery near the Killary Fjord, far away from civilization. The nearest village Leenane is 7 km from it. It is not so easy to get to this place by public transport but possible thanks to a trip with the Galway Tour Company (the information is on the hostel side) which drops you off a one km from the hostel. This an excellent place for hikers.


a great location in a peaceful area. We had a good time on the terrace around the hand-made wooden table, the "plus": the chimney, the billiard...the staff is very very warm, thanks to johan!


Really nice atmosphere as there were lots of other young people there, and good areas to chill out. Would be good if the wifi worked in the rooms as you could only use it in the common areas. My bathroom had no lock on the door so felt a bit uncomfortable using it as I was in a mixed dorm. Overall though a nice hostel with friendly staff!
