It was really nice to have one whole part of the house to ourselves ( 4 bedrooms) and to be able to hang out together as a group in the kitchen and family room. We did a couple of nice hikes in the area, and had a really nice lunch and dinner at the pub down the street. We enjoyed... More

We (our extended family of 28 adults & kids) just spent 3 nights in Clare's Rock Hostel. Pat was efficient and great to deal with in the booking and answering queries etc. The Hostel itself is very well looked after, was very clean and spacious and perfect for our gathering. The kitchen was well equipped with 2 ovens, 2 sinks,... More

Comfortable, clean, economical accommodation with well-equipped kitchen. Simple breakfast food provided. Lovely view across the amazing limestone landscape of the Burren. Quiet rural location, and fortunately other guests were not noisy. Wonderful traditional Irish music on Friday evenings and good food at Cassidy's Pub, 2 minutes walk away.

We booked this place thinking it was a Bed and Breakfast. Well, you have brekfast, if you make one for yourself (there's a kitchen), but bring the ingredients along, too! There's no noise insulation whatsoever, meaning that you will not be able to sleep until midnight, because you'll hear EVERYTHING that goes on around, including the conversation. Prepare for some...

Pat, the owner/manager was wonderful helpful and friendly. Beds are comfy enough with duvets and sheets and decent pillows included (no towels). Great communal kitchen and outdoor area. Lovely chilled, friendly vibe about the place. In a great location and surrounded by the quiet lanscape of the more wild Burren. Beautiful! Very close the the awesomely beautiful nature reserve -...

Wow. Best hostel of my life, and I'm 62 so I've seen a few. Pat, the owner/operator is a true gem. The hostel is new, spacious, warm. The rooms are clean, with en suite and hot water supplied by solar heating, soon to be augmented by a wind turbine. The kitchen is huge, better equipped than some restaurants, and Pat... More

There is a pub pretty much across the road that does great food, has trad sessions and has a friendly cat (outside) and a sheepdog that... More
