    Great location, amazing little cottage feel and the staff (Tintin and Paula) were so incredibly helpful! Lockers in the room and own bathroom was great as well. I would increase the cost by a few dollars and include a light breakfast of fruits/breads. But other than that, it was perfect!! 100% stay there again!! Thank you Tintin for the tips on the cliffs too! 👍

    There were a variety of different kinds of people staying here while I was here. The town of Doolin is amazing and there were local pubs across the street. Room was clean, other visitors were respectful. The hostel feels like your grandmas house-very cosy and nice.

    Great location. Quiet hostel during midweek. Parking was tight but available. We booked all four beds in an ensuite room for 2 of us. Bed/room was cramped but privacy was great. Nice to have make your own breakfast food for purchase plus tea/coffee at no cost. Across road from Fitsgeralds Pub. Close to the Cliffs so you can get there early or later to miss the tour buses. Go on the sunniest day you have while there. Easy drive to Burren and Raptor Center. Nice retail shop and market nearby.
