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 hire bikes with 30% discount to our own guests. 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.

    Fabulous

    15 Jun 2018
    Nice hostel, had a quiet, comfortable and sensibly set out double room with w.c and shower. Had to climb over herself to get into my side of the bed as there was no space to walk around the bed being placed against the wall at head, side and foot of the bed but that was grand.The bed was comfy, shower and toilet clean and worked fine. I'd stay again.

    Very Good

    02 Jun 2018
    More like a house than a hostel. Take in account that the closest place to buy something to cook is two kms away. If you expect to have a good internet connection maybe is not the place or i wasn’t very lucky. 1 km away from the begging of the cliffs of moher trail.
