Absolutely adore the staff at Kilronan Hostel--extremely generous with their time, take you around, hang out, become good friends! That's their "M.O." We really enjoyed getting to know them and having "pot luck" dinners together … Everyone's welcomed at the Kilronan Hostel!

Just back after a one night stay with a group of students. Great location and very good cooking facilities. The hostel offer value for money in rooms all of which have ensuite shower/ex. Most rooms have 4 beds, and space is tight. Very close to the ferry.

This is a fantastic hostel, and I had a wonderful time staying here. The staff was incredibly friendly, and hostel and rooms were very clean, bright, and tidy. A welcoming atmosphere in the most perfect location you could ask for. The staff organized a great bus tour of the island for us and played lively songs on the guitar for... More

Schade Schokolade that we had only two days at Kilronan hostel! It was the best place we found during our two week- round trip around ireland! At first we wanted to stay only one night, but the circumstances and little conviction of Kevin (the manager) and Erik (life artist) could make us expand our trip to Inis Mòr! The atmosphere...

We stayed in this hostel with a group of college students with whom we were traveling. My wife and I had the advantage of a four bed (bunk beds, of course) room all to ourselves. The room had about as much crammed into it as was possible. We even had our own postage stamp size bathroom. The "desk" clerk was... More

Some of our rooms are small but unlike many hostels, every room has its own bathroom! We hope you enjoyed our beautiful island! Remember....everything is included when you... More

We stayed there 3 nights and it was a very nice time. Very friendly and open minded staff (we watched a football match together and the chocolate cake was yummi). The hostel was clean although they did some paintings. They do a lot of things to make the hostel a beautiful place. The location is perfect, a good place to... More

I visited the Aran Islands during the crazy Ted festival and was lucky to find one space in this hostel. A nice and comfortable atmosphere, totally clean hostel and very friendly staff - they offered me some of the dinner they cooked and even a glass of wine! Really recommend this place to everyone!

Hi Clement, thanks for the great review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and made friends with the crazy priests and nuns that were here for Tedfest!

All the staff was great, and very personable. They were painting the dining room which was fine since the living room was open, as well as the kitchen. Good showers and don't cram everyone into one room, I had a room to myself though there were other guests.

Thanks so much for your kind words. I'm delighted you had such a nice time here at Kilronan Hostel - despite the chaos of the painting and renovations! Having hot showers is very important when the weather is as cold and wet as it was the day you stayed, so I'm glad that helped make your stay more enjoyable. Hopefully... More

This hostel was amazing! Kevin was so acaccommodating for me and my friends,he managed to put all of us together even though that hadn't been an option previously. The room was so cozy, with extra space heaters, and everything was really clean. The hostel also arranged a bus tour for us which made the day so much more relaxing.
