From Sarah varian Barry and Gerry barryThe bus from Westport dropped us off at the crossroads at 8 o clock on a wet evening. We were loaded down with bags of food as it's five miles to the shop. As we struggled up the drive the house became visible in a copse of mature trees. And we entered the magic place Large victorian house. Quaint bar on site with turf fire and a big welcome for musicians. Pat and Alice Gallagher the owners are musicians themselves. Really nice staff. Breakfast provided but I never got up in time. Tidy well equipped kitchen. Dugourt beach fifteen minutes walk. Wild and wonderful and empty. When you come back to the hostel in the evening you feel like you are coming home. Walk to the top of the lane to watch the sunset over the lake and the ocean beyond. Small marquee in courtyard There was a folk and bluegrass lweekend during our stay. Madenew friends. Definitely returning to this special hostel. Sarah varian Barry From cork and Gerry barry from Kerry.
