Rainbow is a family you would like to have: very caring without being intrusive. They do care for their guests as well as for their village and environment. Matti takes you out on tours,gives you a slide-show of the surroundings and shows you the best places to collect stones. Carmel is present when you need her, she has always a good word and is ready to do her best to make you comfortable.
I was there in February and it was very warm and cosy, with a turf fire in the evenings. I am not a usual Backpacker as I have packed already fifty years on. But this hostel goes with any age.
Prices for private rooms are good value and I can recomment this hostel together with the Burrens and lovely Dooling fully. Do stop there, you won't regret.
