    I actually shed a few tears when I left here - I just wanted to carry on enjoying the beautiful scenery in this most delightfully located hostel by the fiord . And even though there were plenty of guests , it never felt crowded, because of its spacious public rooms where there was always a quiet space to read , to paint or to just drink in the atmosphere . I will be back !

    A lovely secluded hostel that has wonderful access to all of the hiking and outdoors the area has to offer. We stayed here while driving the wild atlantic way. You can sit and watch the sunset over the water. It's super close to Kylemore Abbey as well.

    lovely spot, 5km from town down a rural road, only one taxi to leenane village which has a very small shop - bring your own food, medications needed etc. Hostel itself is located right on the fjord so beautiful spot to sit out in the evening or breakfast. Staff are busy but polite and friendly There is lots of cosy common room spaces - really nice Bedrooms- mattresses on the beds are old but the showers are fine and place is clean Very reasonably priced. Hostel has a bar serving wine only&pizza

    Good place and I would go again but watch out for showers as water can be scalding. Also breakfast and coffee start at 8am, a little on the late side for me
