We had heard that this hostel was very good, but on staying there is was beyond our expectations, the very best. We were received with a great welcome and our room was spotlessly clean. The bed was most comfortable with crisp fresh linen and everything in the room was well co-ordinated. There was a great power shower in the en-suite... More

To be honest, we booked a room in Doolin Hostel for its price. It was a bargain. But after staying there I would gladly stay there again. We were in Doolin Hostel for two nights. Room was clean. Had problems with hot water and bathroom was a bit small but that goes for most hotels and b&bs I have stayed... More

The rooms were nice and spacious and the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. However, the toilet didn't flush properly, the shower took a long time to warm up, and the breakfast had very little choice (even if you were willing to pay extra for more options).

Dear Tamuz Thank you for your feedback, but I am surprised to hear the shower took so long to heat up since we added a new pump. I checked the rooms furthest away from the boiler and found during the quietest of periods when the water may be cool in the pipes it took 20-25 seconds to heat up fully,... More

I travelled alone and spent one night in Doolin. I booked a bed in a room for 6 women. I came early and was lucky to take a standard bed, not the double deck one. I guess this was probably a "luxury". The sheets were clean, the bed was fine. It is very international. I met a friendly Austrian girl... More

The place is run by a team of knowledgeable and capable persons. Friendly and concerned about the quality of their service. You need info about the region/the acitvities/... - ask for it here (don't bother going to the tourist office). The place is clean. Totally. The rooms are awesome. Big. Wel equiped. Nice. The location is great: walking distance to... More

We recently enjoyed a seven night stay at the Doolin Hostel with a group of 50 university faculty, staff and students for a residency in creative writing. Anthony, Deirdre and their staff made this trip a joy. The hostel is perfectly positioned at the foot of the Cliffs of Moher which made for heartbreakingly beautiful hikes each morning. The pier...

The cute little hostel is located across the street from the night life of Doolin. Staff was super friendly, rooms were clean and accommodating, and price was spot on for a great experience in this tiny town along the coast. Definitely recommended, especially if traveling on a budget.

I stayed here a few weeks ago and have been raving about to friends since, its about time I mentioned it on Tripadvisor. Doolin is a magical little place, the local pubs are great fun and there's so much to do within a short walk or drive. The cliff walk from the hostel up to the Cliffs of Moher visitors... More

The beds at this hostel are comfortable and the entire property is kept to a very clean standard. Although the hostel rooms are spread between two buildings, each building has its own kitchen and living room/dining room areas and is securely locked. There is a good breakfast every morning (full of carbs, no real protein or fresh fruit/veggies) that will... More

Dear Kandis Great to hear you enjoyed your first say in a Hostel and found our beds so comfortable in the six bed dormitory.
