I remember staying here a couple of years ago on a university fieldtrip to County Connemara and County Clare. Undeniably one of the best hostel experiences I have had around the world. Its probably not to everybody's liking, but if you have an open mind and want a different experience then you can't go wrong with this place. This quirky... More

Although we didn´t stay here, we received a recommendation to hire cycles from Steve here and we visited the hostel, which seems to be a nice place for those on a budget. The bike that we rented were really good quality and Steve gave us good ideas about what to visit on our day out

I stayed there for three nights with a friend. The hostel is located near by Connemara National Park (a treasure in any seasons!), the owner is very friendly. Great breakfast, really appreciated before a hiking day. Loved the hostel atmosphere, especially the bathrooms and atypical decorations all over the place! I will definitively come back. Moreover, locals are very charming... More

If you're looking for a special experience this is the place to go. You may think you enter an antique shop when you go in. The creaky floorboards, the hanging books, the welcome board, the themed rooms: The office, church, safari.. everything makes you feel like you’re out of this world. Dust is part of the decor. One must have... More

I stayed at this hotel a few years ago while living in Galway. It was by far my favorite hostel I've seen. The outdoor area is perfect to sit and relax after touring Connemara! I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a relaxing outdoor retreat!

Myself, my husband & our 2 kids (8 &10), loved our stay at this hostel at the weekend.great food & music sat night..Highly recommend it for families. Met lots of interesting people. Highlight was showering to flashing christmas tree lights & john mccormac singing molly malone on the radio - surreal!

This hostel felt like home the minute we arrived. A breath of fresh air that absolutely set the tone of the trip. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a little sanctuary as long as you like things unique and laidback.

This were the worst place I ever lived in! It wasn't clean, it smelled and the owner was odd. I should have read about it, at Tripadvisor, before i booked the room. I was e-mailing with the owner about a singleroom and the price for it. We agreed 15 Euro pr. night but when I arrived the price was 25... More

This is a place like no other. We found it by accident but picked it out right away. It is crowded with books, accessories and colors! The host is unexpectedly quiet for such a place, but warm and lovely. In the morning each guest gets a free home made breakfast - I especially enjoyed freshly baked bread. The hostel is... More
