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.

    I had a very cosy time at The Rainbow Hostel, considering you get breakfast as part of your stay, it’s very good value for money. But primarily, the hostel itself is very warm and homely, has very good wifi and the owners are very very friendly.

    When you walk in there is a lovely cosy fire on at night, I stayed in a 6 bedroom dorm and it was my second time staying in a budget hostel and I have to say it was one of the best compared to the one I stayed in Dublin. It had its own bathroom in the room and there was a pillow with a duvet with switches to charge your phone. The owner, I believe Carmen was her name was always asking if everything was ok and how I was which was lovely as well :) Don't worry about safety, it's a secure place :)

    Everything you could expect from a hostel. Beautiful home, cosy living room, great kitchen (fully furnished), nice big rooms (we stayed in a 6 beds dorm). Mattie and Carmel were extremely nice and more than happy to help. They were quite often around, which was very nice, always having a kind word or a nice smile. The breakfast was more than enough, cereals, toasts, soda bread, jams.... We highly recommend.
