wow! what a beautiful location. Unlike others have mentioned, we had no difficulty in finding the hostel- but then we're natives. Travelling along the N59, a brown (Tourist & Leisure) sign, sent us up along the western & very picturesque side of Carrowmore lake. Coming to a crossroads, we missed the next sign, but knew we were in the right... More

I brought 3 children with me aged 10,8 and 5. The hostel was booked out to accommodate an event and despite not knowing anyone else, there was a lovely open atmosphere. The common room was very relaxed and the boys even found a box of lego which kept them happy for a couple of hours. Another little girl made life... More

The two of us had an excellent time here. Yes, the building is dated but it is very clean. The hostess was incredibly generous as were the other guests. Our stay was comfortable and reasonably priced. The hostel is near the ocean and the yard and surrounding area is very beautiful. We were even offered fresh eggs from the chickens... More

My girlfriend and I found this gem among ireland's hostels more or less by accident. After staying there for one night we decided to extend our stay by one more night because of the hostel's wonderful atmosphere and the genuinely friendly staff. Beautifully situated overlooking the bay with a wonderful garden, very calm place, very clean and a cozy atmosphere.

Beautiful garden... I had the fortune of one location un-expectantly closing and referring me to Betty @ Kilcommon. I emailed and she responded immediately. A large dining room with a fireplace welcomes you. It is a great place to set down for a couple of days and day trips to the top end of County Mayo... Also very close to... More

We were looked after very well and hospitably by the host, Betty. As well as having all the local knowledge needed to give us exceeelnt guidance on all local amenities and sights, Betty was also an excellent cook. Also, very reasonably priced for both bed and meals. Couldn't be happier.

My boyfriend and I stayed here as part of a kitesurfing weekend where the accomodation was organised for us. The room was great - nice warm double room which is what we needed after a day in the freezing lake. We got a great cooked breakfast in the morning too which was a great surprise. There was an outdoors area... More

Stayed in Kilcommon Lodge on a recent cycle trip around the west of Ireland. Betty was very welcoming and cooked us a fantastic 3 course meal in the evening - best veggie lasagne I have tasted and she was happy for us to take the leftovers for our lunch the next day!

Beautiful located on the coast under a hill, this hostel has a super friendly and chilled out vibe. On a recent trip to Ireland, a group of four of us rented boards and wet suits from the hostel and took a surf lesson with the owner, we enjoyed every minute of it. With a small group, we got all the... More
