I loved everything about this place, there is an excellent athmosphere when you walk within the front door. The decor is beautiful, all flagstones and open fires. My room was lovely, although I had booked a double, there was a third bed also. The shower was great, constant hot water. Everything was immaculate as nicely as the employees were extremely helpful and friendly. I was attending a wedding at the hotel across the road, so the location was excellent.

Everything. Feels like home, they look right after you. Lovely to stay in a hostel run by a local family. The girl on reception is my new really best friend! I did not wish to leave. So accommodating, helpful advice! My bus didnt turn up so they gave me a no cost breakfast! Wifi isnt strong but you don&'t come to Doolin to sit on facebook!

Fantastic all round. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable. The employees worked very hard to mae peole really feel t home and keep the location clean. its a pity a few travellers cannot do the same. On the whole backpackers are sensible and considerate, but just a few really feel that they are entitled to leave their washing up for others to do. However this is not the fault of the staff, they were brillaint and worked very hard.

Location exceptional for the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre and for the ferryboat from Doolin to Inisheer. 300-year-old farmhouse we were told. Fabulous situation beside the fast-flowing Aille River. Novelty for us to be at a youth hostel at the age of late-sixties, but we managed perfectly as it was so efficient whilst being informal. The good notice of no credit-card facilities, plus the location of the nearest ATMs was a boon and prevented an embarassing scene, as occurred when I was caught with too few euros at the brand-new and ambitious Blasket Centre in the Dingle Peninsula. There they did not alert one to the lack of credit-card facilities, although they have now altered their website due to my bitter complaint. Their reasoning is that it is too expensive to pay for a credit-card facility if only open for 7 months. Aille River Lodge coped much much better with the same problem.

This was a great quaint Irish cottage. We could not have asked for a greater place to stay! It was clean and fabulous and also the employees was even better.
