Property Description

Our small hostel is family run, in the heart of Doolin. It is a traditional farmhouse built in the 18th century. The Rainbow Hostel was established in 1986 with just 12 beds. The building was sympathetically renovated in Spring 2003 into a simple, easy going, warm, friendly and bright coloured hostel. We have kept the high pine wood ceilings (traditional farmhouse style) in the common room and in all the bedrooms. This allows for a better circulation of air in the rooms and this, incorporated with under floor heating, creates a healthy warm room in which to relax and sleep in.

Facilities: Common room with turf fire stove, self catering kitchen, private twin and double en suite bedrooms, mixed and private dormitory bedrooms (all en suite), our twin room has one double and single bed with its own shower and toilet, free hot showers and towels, washing and drying facilities, WiFi free of charge. Discount bike hire, free guided walk and slide show of local area, available free to hostel guests, free car parking and bicycle lock up.

Local Activities: Visit Doolin Cave, Ferries to Aran Islands/Cliffs of Moher, Burren Walks, Pitch/Putt, Golf, Rock Climbing, Caving, Cycling, Horse Riding, Archaeological/Heritage sites, Surfing, Angling, Diving.

Rainbow Hostel is situated in the heart of the village beside some of Doolins famous traditional music pubs, restaurants and craft shops We can help organise your visit to Doolin, the Burren area, Cliffs of Moher and the Aran Islands with local maps and advice on the best sites and activities during your stay with us. We also give a free two-hour free guided heritage walk in the Burren landscape of Doolin at evening time or by request for those staying with us.

Advice: If coming by Bus Eireann, please ask the bus driver to stop at the Rainbow Hostel bus stop.

Check in closes at 21.00.

    A fabulous hostel in an amazing place. Staff can’t do enough to ensure guests feel welcome and settled. The hostel is comfortable, clean and well maintained. Always an interesting mix of people and a great atmosphere. Couldn’t recommend highly enough. And very near to McGann’s pub which is an amazing experience for food, atmosphere and Irish music and only a short walk from the Burren and the wild west Ireland coast

    Really nice and cosy hostel! Carmel is a lovely host and does everything to make you feel at home. Very kind and helpful with good knowledge of the surroundings. Pierre knows how to make a great fire and keeps it going until late in the evening, which is awesome on a rainy cold day. Great place!

    Wonderful place to stay! My first experience in a ‘hostel’, beds were warm, comfortable and fresh! I was surprised when a man bunked in with us so if you are opposed to co-Ed speak up ahead of time! Breakfast was sufficient and simple, satisfying for travelers budget and needs! Highly recommend!

    Doolin is a central location for Aran Islands, Moher and the Burren country. Hostel has own bus stop on the regular 350 coast service from Galway. Hostel is an old building modernised into a comfortable mix of rooms, kitchen, dining room and lounge. Half-hour walk to Aran ferry pier. Only a few steps to both local pubs with nightly craic.
