Reviewed April 25, 2008

I thought the hostel was better than many I've "experienced". The breakfast was meager (toast, cereal, coffee), but it was something.

The staff are friendly enough, the room was ok, clean.

The bed was not that comfortable.

The breakfast in non-existent, basically. You don't expect much in the way of breakfast at a hostel, but something would be good, especially as they do advertise some sort of breakfast to us when we booked.

The internet is also very slow. the staff blamed the infrastructure in County Clare, but the place we tried just down the road had very fast internet.

Overall OK, but only OK, the location is good if you want to be close, but not to close the food and drink of an evening.
