Lovely hostel ensconced in the heart of achill . Great music session went on into the early hours , great guinness , overall a perfect traditional stay. The main man could play!


Great hostel. Best location you will ever sleep in.


Wonderfully decrepit in places, but clean where it mattered and all part of the experience.

Lovely rambling house in magnificent location. It's definitely not a boutique hostel, which adds to its charm and character. The kitchen is very well equipped, the showers (much maligned by some other reviewers) were efficient and hot, the dorm comfortable and quiet, and the fresh filter coffee at breakfast an unexpected treat. Many thanks to the friendly and welcoming staff. I'll be back next year.


Room looked a bit mouldy in areas which can be critical for some customers with allergies.
