Feeling unsure of hostels but wanting to be in a central location for all that north Clare has to offer we booked into the Kilfenora Hostel. There were five of us in the group all experienced travellers who usually go for the hotel option and we were extremely happy with what we got. Rooms werre bright and spacious with clean bed linen. Orla who runs the hostel was most welcoming and give us lots of ideas and advise on what to go see in the area, and there is lots to see and do. Definately recommend it and a great pint of Guinness and good food next door in Vaughan's bar to add!!

Room Tip: Just ask Orla she is very helpful

I must apologize for being so late in posting this review. The thought came to me again as I consider what we will do for the approaching mid-term break. As an extended family we were thrilled to discover this charming hostel and its friendly welcome. It was a wonderful experience. We felt close to Lahinch and Ennistymon but at the same away from the madding crowds and able to relax into the music that we found on all three nights that we stayed there. Best of all though is its convenience for discovering the Burren, the soul of Ireland. Kilfenora has a magic charm and is really friendly.

Breakfast (cereal & toast) were provided and the shower was great. Bunks were a little squeaky and there were quite a few midges and flies buzzing around (though that may have been generally in kilfenora rather than specific to the hostel!). Hard to tell if there would have been more of a vibe there if it was busy - we were the only guests. Pub next door does good hearty fare and Guinness, of course.

A really great hostel to stay in. The family that run it are very friendly and down to earth. The rooms and toilets were very clean and modern. The do it yourself breakfast was tasty and fresh. Although a very small town Kilfenora is a great jump off point if you want to visit the Arran islands. There was also a fantastic pub next door with amazing pub grub and a very funny & friendly barman. As an Irishman I was very proud of the experience myself and my foreign friends had here.
