It has all of the necessary things you need to cook. Also enough breakfast is available. The bar is cozy and friendly and nice. You may also play some billiard there. The rooms are warm enough and extra radiator is obtainable in case you need it. The windows open to a gorgeous scenery of the Dimond Mountain. The owner recieves you at arrival and he is really friendly and gives you good info of the places to visit. The hostels situated on a really good spot that has access with few mins to the very best sceneries of the Connemara loop. It is also really close the Connemara national park. There is also a backery and coffee shop obtainable down the street that sad to say I could not uncover the opportunity to try it but looked really nice. There is also a marketplace obtainable near the hostel to buy the stuff you need.

Really kind staff, very good food, nice rooms, only one other (very nice) woman staying there so felt like we had the whole location to ourselves. Nice breakfast. Really handy having the pub nearby for food and drink. Outstanding stew! Really helpful people, nice having books there, kids loved the games. All in all, a very pleasing stay.

Clean kitchen, 24 hour access to common region which included bread, spreads, tea and coffee. Staff did my laundry for me free of charge. Pub component of the hostel with outstanding setting serving outstanding food until 10pm. Booked a &'6 person dorm&' which turned out to be a motel-style ensuite room with a couple of extra beds thrown in. Had the room to myself for the whole week.
