My Friend and I received a warm welcome and Dave insured we had no unanswered questions. Great value on bicycle rental, a splendid and practical kitchen, warm dorm rooms and a 'family-like' living room all combined to make our stay perfect. Thanks and keep up the great work guys.

Stayed in this hostel for 4 nights in early July and really enjoyed my time there. Lovely rooms and very friendly staff as well as a great communal room and kitchen. Free Wi-Fi was also a big plus. Would definitely recommend and I will definitely return.

Terrific location near attractions, transportation and grocery. Where I was staying in the 4 bed dorm, I could watch the evening tide come in through the window and... More

Staff are lovely, rooms are clean & beds are v comfortable! The kitchen and adjoining chill room is a brilliant facility and great place to relax especially during the rainstorm that inevitably will hit during any Inis Mor trip! Great stay!

An impeccably clean hostel with staff who go beyond friendly in order to make sure that everything works well. It seems like staying in a favorite uncle's home. Incredible value for money as the cost of bike rental is reduced and the visit to Dun Aonghosa was complimentary. My second visit to Inish Mor and I am delighted that I... More
