We arrived after midnight on the friday but this was no problem as Brendan (owner) was still up and about. We stayed in one of the large 4 man dorm rooms which had heaps of space and a shared bathroom which was more than adequate for our needs. There were ample social areas and a large kitchen/ dining room upstairs where we were.
We went to Dunfanaghy for the surf and the hostel is only 10 minutes drive from the furthest beaches at Falcarragh and Marble Hill and 2 minutes from Tramore beach but there is a wee walk across the dunes to get to it. We hooked up witht he guys and girls at Narosa Surf School who showed us about and were a great laugh. Even tho we've surfed before we got a lesson which definitely help refine our skills!
At night there was a good atmosphere as it was pretty busy with people cooking/ drinking etc. and in the village there was live music at Mollys on both saturday and sunday nights. Good friendly atmosphere and more than enough drink for everyone! We then went across the road to Roonies nightclub but we'll let you rate that one for yourself, its an experience if anything.
All in all its a great place to go to chill out and get away from the city. Brendan is more than happy to tell you about places to go and things to see and made us feel very welcome. We'll be going back soon for sure!
