    Probably the best hostel I've stayed in. It's a beautiful old building that used to be a hotel. I was in a 8 person dorm and it was one of the biggest I've ever been in, with a very clean and large en suite. The kitchen facilities are very clean and spacious. The tv room is great, open fire and loads of films to pick from. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Just a 2 min walk to the pubs in the village. At a great location to explore the cliffs of Moher, just a 10 minute drive.

    Great place to stay! The bathrooms were large and clean, which is a very big bonus for those who spend time getting ready for the day. The staff were so kind and helpful, and encouraging when it came to different activities to do around town.

    Hostel has great facilities, particularly the large kitchen area and the many different chill out areas (especially the room with the fireplace). Rooms are very basic but clean. Other guests were respectful of the noise restrictions between certain hours. Lisdoonvarna was a good base for exploring the Cliffs of Moher (need a car, although there was a bus stop close by) and is a cool place all on its own. We enjoyed a meal at The Irish Arms tavern just down the road.
