My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights in September during the Matchmaking Festival. The hostel is in a great location...only 5 minute walk away from the village centre. My friend and I were booked in to a 6 bed female dorm en suite which was very comfortable and all for only €20.00 per person per night. You won't find value like this anywhere else in Lisdoon during the matchmaking festival. Some hotels were charging €200 for a double! Crazy! The Reception staff were very friendly and gave good recommendations for places to visit close by. We'd highly recommend the Wild Honey Inn, just 5mins walk away for great food and lovely ambience. We went there for lunch & dinner one day! Also, highly recommended is An Fear Gorta Tea & Garden rooms in Ballyvaughan for a fabulous selection of homemade tarts, pies and desserts in general. They've a mouth watering display when you walk in the door. Impossible to have just a cup of tea here! The Best Pub in Lisdoon in the Roadside Tavern with great live music. It's a bit away from the other chaotic festival pubs and has a really nice atmosphere and crowd. The last final tip for Lisdoon visitors is...there is NO ATM in the village. So make sure you get cash out in Ennistymon or Lahinch or wherever before you arrive. The only alternative is to buy something in the local shop with a minimum €10.00 spend to get cash back with your laser card and NOT all shops offer this option. You've been warned! ;-)
