My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of June. The hostel is really cool, with plenty of facilities for guests. The staff were very friendly and there was no issue with our late evening arrival and staying around for a while before our departure. Good mix of families and backpacking tourists staying here, adding to... More

The Aille River Hostel is a cozy little hostel. We had a very nice double room with river view and a small bathroom. It was very clean, no matter if you were in the shared restrooms, the kitchen or the private restrooms. The bed was comfortable and it was quiet, allthough the hostel was rather busy. The staff was helpful... More

We drove the short distance to Doolin and were delighted by Ailler River Hostel. We were able to camp in the grounds but avail of the amenities... More

Stayed here for the Doolin Folk Festival 2015. Had a ball at the festival and was situated in close proximity to pubs, restaurants etc. Clean, nice staff, comfortable beds, great value, would definitely stay again.

My son and I are traveling across, up, and down Ireland. Our first two nights were at the Aille River Hostel and it was beyond my hopes. It was so charming, I had the most picturesque view from my room. We had one full size bed and one twin with a wall separating so a bit of privacy. It was... More

Arrived late on a Sunday evening, past check in time and found the owner very accommodating and friendly. Lovely little hostel with a lovely stove in the common area. If cheap and cheerful are what you are looking for then I would strongly recommend the Allie River Hostel.

“Fantastic location, nice facilities and welcoming common rooms with a lovely fire at night. Kitchen was really great but grab some groceries before you arrive in doolin as there is no supermarket or little grocer. Spacious rooms and comfortable beds in the 7 bed dorm but there was only two power points for the whole room. Staff were very helpful... More

Lovely building, very cosy, it's clean and it like a friend's home. A clean and tidy friend with a fireplace in the living room. It's like an hostel for over 30 's , so don't expect party at all. We had a private double with shared bathroom. In the end we had the bathroom for ourselves since Robert gave us... More
