Property Description

Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor.

Centrally located Family-friendly Hostel. Free High-speed Fibre Wifi.
Situated on the Wild Atlantic Way, the Aille River Tourist Hostel is the gateway to the majestic 700 ft Cliffs of Moher, the world-famous Aran Islands and the unique beauty of the Burren landscape, home to thousands of rare wildflowers and archaeological Celtic sites.

This 300-year-old renovated building is situated on a quiet road on the bank of the Aille River, right in the centre of Doolin. This is a perfect spot for your stopover or extended stay in the area, where you will experience a warm friendly atmosphere and welcome. Visit the sights of Clare or just chill out by the river during the day..... then relax by the turf fire or check out the traditional music in the local pubs.

A magical riverside location and so conveniant for bus and pubs. Lovely crowd of fellow travellers and well staffed. We had the,private "bijou" double with tge separate entrance- a bit on the small side but we,were travelling very light so fine for us. May not suit soneone with large suitcases or needing a wardrobe to hang clothes . Definately worth purchasing the basic but adequate breakdfast....5 Euros for nicsourdough bread, cream cheese, egg, banana plus te or coffee. Overall a great stay
