    Loved it can’t wIt to go back. And visited local seaweed soak a must next time again too. The hostel was cosy and clean and one of the staff had an amazing singing voice. Kitchen facilities were spacious and airy. I enjoyed cooking some of y favourite spicy dishes ugh a glass of wine. Lots of places to walk with the affixed benefit of a local activity centre. actually it’s on the door step shame it’s closed for the winter next month as it would make a great hide away retreat. Till spring then

    OMG Killary Fjord is a magic place! The hostel is situated in a green area in front of the fiord. It has everything you need: great atmosphere, a perfect starting point for trekking, kitchen to cook your own meals, breakfast included, bar until midnight to chill out in the evening with pizza, wine and pool table. If you are looking for a quiet place to recharge your batteries, this hostel is just perfect! If you need a bit more of adventure, sign up at Killary adventure next door!

    Like staying at a country house weekend! Idyllic setting beside Killary Fjord, at the centre of Connemara, surrounded by mountains, sea, walks and other activity locations. Great welcome, helpful staff, and interesting international other residents. Facilities superb, from outsize storage fridge to jigsaws. Our en-suite was spacious and comfortable. The warm lounge was just the place to snuggle down whilst Storm Lorenzo passed through. Hostel heaven.
