Kilcommon Lodge Hostel
Reviewed September 21, 2011

Beautiful located on the coast under a hill, this hostel has a super friendly and chilled out vibe.
On a recent trip to Ireland, a group of four of us rented boards and wet suits from the hostel and took a surf lesson with the owner, we enjoyed every minute of it. With a small group, we got all the attention we needed, much better than surf camps I have been on in Australia. The Guinness is well deserved after.
Nice clean hostel with great facilities.
Also ,there are lots of amazing coastal walks in this part of Ireland.
A must do for those seeking some outdoor adventure in Ireland.

It would be ideal to have your own transport.

This was the best hostel by far that I stayed in on my recent week in Ireland. It was in a fantastic location and was managed very efficiently. The rooms were lovely with plenty of room a sink and shelving. A small table and chair was a welcome addition. The kitchen facilities were very good with plenty of equipment. The shower and toilets were good. The whole place was very clean and well maintained. The price was amazing, such good value. I would not hesitate to stay there agin and I can hightly recommend it to anyone reading this!

A utilitarian hostel in a stunning location, though given the low price one couldn't complain. The decor is sparse and dated but everything was spotlessly clean. Friendly people with a rather large dog.

Visited Kilcommon Lodge for a 30th Birthday weekend away. Our whole group took over the family run hostel for the weekend. Very good value .Its a good drive up from Dublin but its worth it. Great place to try surfing for the 1st time. Beachs are nice and clean. Lots of things to do locally. Horseriding on the beach. surfing, kite surfing, deep sea fishing etc. Would recommend a visit. Hope to be able to get back myself soon !

Hi

From the start Ciaran the owner was extremly helpful with planning for the 3 nights we stayed. the hostel was block booked for 2 of the 3 nights. we had a group of 19 staying with 26 for dinner one of the nights.

The location is fabulous - sea views, 2 pubs close by, horse riding, sea fishing from land or boat, surfing run through the hostel, clay pigeon shooting and wind surfing!
To name but a view.

We used the hostel for the whole weekend, by that i mean we used the new barbecue purpose built for a big party, the pool room, the living area with turf fire and kitchen with every convenience you'd need to prepare a dinner for 26 people. chopping boards, all types of knives,bowls plates the lot!

It met our expectations and more, the family who run it were extremly nice and the food for breakfast was a highlight of each day! organic eggs and great quality ingredients all round.

IF i was going again we'd have the hostel feed us as they have line caught fresh fish there and it is fantastic.

we'll be going back both as a couple and a small group of 6 to 8, as it offers so much!

AH
