    A great spot to stay in lahinch right in the centre of town. Dan is a legend who went out of his way for us when we arrived from Kerry cycling in the rain and even helped one of the guys fix his bike and get us back on the road. Eoin

    Great location, lovely staff, nice showers, warm clean rooms with coded doors, felt very secure. The corridors were grotty due to old green carpet which is now grey, toilets weren't in great shape.

    Place was quite nice and had decent beds and other facilities. Kitchen was well equipped with breakfast included. Unfortunately on the night we stayed there, the front was not locked so a lot of young boys who were out on a lash came into the hostel and created a ruckus. They got into some rooms by chancing to knock on doors. They had a fight with the people just above our floor. Luckily we weren't stormed but couldn't sleep a wink with all the noise and ruckus made. Freak incident i guess.
