“Legendary experience”
Reviewed January 16, 2008

Stayed here for one night and will remember it for the rest of my life. The guys that run the place are a little spaced, but it's the most fun you'll have at a hostel anywhere on earth, no kiddin. I arrived in the afternoon, got to know the people there, kayaked on a sea lake with grey seals, came back to the mill, and partied with the nicest drunkest Irish folks I've ever met. The next morning, the guys were awake early cleaning up, organizing, and recycling every bit of trash in the place. World class. What a blast.

Absolutely Fantastic. Loved the staff, the activities & the complete mix of people. Would like to think I walked away with friends I hope to keep contact with in the future. Have been to alot of hostels & would have to rate Russagh Mill as my favorite. Aoife.

Stayed July 2007
