Cape Clear Island Holiday Hostel

I spent 3 nights in the Cape Clear Island Holiday hostel with a diving club and we can't wait to go back. The hostel is amazingly located, less than 200m from the pier on the south harbour. Anne, the owner, could not possibly have been more accommodating. She went above and
