Value
Cape Clear Island Holiday Hostel is stunningly situated in the South Harbour of Cape Clear Island within a few steps of the pebble beach. The view from all of the rooms is breathtaking; awaken in the morning, after a great night’s sleep, to the sound of the lapping waves with the freshest of air to breathe and, if you are lucky, your stay might coincide with the annual arrival of Basking Sharks to the waters directly outside the bedroom windows.

Spent three weeks here in April. So beautiful with the sea outside your window. Wake up to seals on the rocks and beautiful birds everywhere. Anne is a wonderful host and the people of the island are kind and warm. Amazing place!

We arrived on a wet and windy day and were welcomed and on first name terms with everyone in no time. It is spotlessly clean and well equipped. Anne, who runs the place lit the stove in the living room and we had the pleasure...More
