    I initially stayed at this hostel because all of the hostels in Galway City were booked, but now I'd recommend adding Oughterard to your itinerary. It's a lovely town with friendly, charming people. The hostel was very clean with picturesque grounds. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend.

    Staying at the Oughterard Holiday Hostel was excellent! The live in homey atmosphere is what really set it apart from any other hostel I’ve stayed in. Used as an angling fishing school, it offers photographers a unique location. My only complaint would be the lack of hot water for the shower but that’s just a small setback in an extraordinary place!

    A bit of a trek from the city center but worth it for the quiet and clean space

    The hostel is placed outside Galway, but is in a good position to start a trip in the Connemara. Is very clean and quiet. I highly recommend this hostel.

    I really liked that it was outside of Galway. It’s quite and peaceful escape from the city. They even offer fishing. The only downside is people trying to get around on public transportation. I had a car, but I wouldn’t have stayed here if I hadn’t rented a car.

    Not good for families travelling through ireland (unless you’re on a fishing trip), private room was not a good value for the money, very small and sparse, this hostel is primarily for fisherman or fishing enthusiasts which we should have been aware of given the name, but i thought it was more of a “theme” hostel. People really do come here to fish in the pond on site and I think that’s what makes it a highly-rated facility. Otherwise the facilities are extremely sparse and barebones.
