Worth the money. Very clean. Very professional. The best breakfast I have eating backpacking for over six months! So healthy! I stayed in a 6 bed dorm and the room was huge and the bed/mattress was very comfy and spacious. Would come again

Our family room was perfect for our girls trip to Doolin. The Doolin Hostel staff were very hospitable with great suggestions on area sites & recommendations for traditional music. Our family room was warm, cozy with a nice breakfast included. Highly recommend. Thanks to the staff.
