    THE STAFF WAS SO FRIENDLY AND GREAT! We were there as the Covid pandemic was starting to get worse, but even though we were only among a few other people staying, the staff was JUST as accommodating, the facilities were spotless, and the beds were the most comfortable I've ever experienced in a hostel. 10/10.

    The staff were so friendly and made us feel at home. The rooms are like a hotel with fluffy pillows and well crafted wooden furniture! Glad we stopped here. Not the best location in terms of night life or activities but well worth a visit if you are in the area.

    No matter where you travel in Ireland this is a spot you HAVE to stop. We were actually sad we were leaving. So much friendliness from Teresa and Seamus ( I'm sorry if I spelled it wrong). I took my friends for a tour de Ireland and I was so happy they could see and experience Irish hospitality in this hidden gem. Not only the owners but that little village welcomed us in such way we felt like we were home. I am definitely going back on my next days off to enjoy and relax. Thank you

    One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. Despite being outside town in the middle of nowhere it's a refreshing stay in a quiet and comfy hostel. The facilities are great, everything clean and the lounge has huge sofas and a TV. Stayed in a 14-bed dorm but we were only 3 so it was perfect. Probably the most comfy hostel bed I ever slept in!
