We stayed over at the Benwiskin Centre en route to further north, mainly because it was the least expensive option around. We didn't have any interaction with staff (apart from a phone call to figure out how to get in and obtain our key...), but other than that it was a comfortable enough place to stay. Be aware that it... More

There was free WIFI in the common area. It's a great place to... More

A prime location with clean room, a quiet garden, and a full kitchen. I would stay there again. We were going out to the island and stayed there to catch the boat. Everything was very convenient. We didn't see anyone the next morning and had the place all to ourselves. That was nice too.

I have stayed here twice now with partner, the latter time also with our three-month-old. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating to our young family. There is a travel cot. The rooms are clean and sheets and towels are provided. The location is absolutely stunning with the majestic mountains in the background. The gardens are well kept.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and basically had the place to ourselves, even though others were around on and off. (There were none of the classes that others have mentioned.) The hostel is incredibly clean and I agree with others that the kitchen is unusually clean and well stocked. The rooms are basic, with comfortable beds and also very... More

I stay here every year. The staff are always friendly and helpful, kitchen facilities are excellent, the place is always clean and there's superb scenery on the doorstep. It's always good value for money.

This is a marvellous hostel. I stayed with a friend for a few days in August. We cycled round the area and climbed up Benbulben. We couldn´t have stayed in a better place. The rooms are clean and comfortable with en suite bathrooms and extra bathrooms in the corridor. The kitchen has every possible domestic appliance with two cookers. There´s... More
