Visited Clare Island as part of 'team building' exercise with work. 9 of us travelled out on a Thursday afternoon for a one night stay. For most of us it was the first time to visit the Island and from the offset we were made feel welcome. the hostel is a short stroll from the pier, and does live up to its title of 'Go Explore'. The weather was overcast but cleared in afternoon to reveal a cliff face drop at front of hostel to rival Croatia. Beautiful clear water lapping against the rocks. Carl (the manager) is an industrious sort of fellow, eager to help and advise on where to go, and what to see. Some of the gang took strolls around the island while us older folk relaxed after lunch and enjoyed the Clew Bay views from Sailors Bar. The food was excellent, and I say that as one of those 'restaurant moaners' as I have intolerances and there are some foods I just cant eat. This was not a problem for the wait or kitchen staff who were very very helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the bathrooms were spotless. Have you ever been to a place to stay and realised you were on a conveyor belt?
Go Explore is not like that, the people we met, were proud of the Island and the 'Go Explore' business.
They should be.
