Worth the money. Very clean. Very professional. The best breakfast I have eating backpacking for over six months! So healthy! I stayed in a 6 bed dorm and the room was huge and the bed/mattress was very comfy and spacious. Would come again

It was a pleasure work with you in organizing your walking club for a long weekend away and it was a pleasure to have you all stay with us. We are so pleased to hear that you found our annex building so comfortable and suitable for your group.

Our family room was perfect for our girls trip to Doolin. The Doolin Hostel staff were very hospitable with great suggestions on area sites & recommendations for traditional music. Our family room was warm, cozy with a nice breakfast included. Highly recommend. Thanks to the staff.

It is great to be located mid way on the Wild Atlantic Way surrounded by so many wonderful attractions making us a great base to explore a wonderful section of the Wild Atlantic Way. It is great to hear you and your friends enjoyed your stay and got to experience some of the great trad music that is played nightly all year round in Doolin.

Warmest regards

Made a number of stops over two days. Friendly, great coffee and loads of info on things to do in the area. We didn't stop but, having checked the rooms (they all look great, but the best ones look like the ones for us!), the prices and the location, we will be back!

The Doolin Hostel was the perfect place to stay for my group of 28 teeangers on a songwriting tour in Ireland. Anthony and the rest of the staff did everything they could to make our stay in Doolin memorable. The rooms are clean and comfortable and we enjoyed using the common room in Fisher Street House during the day. The breakfast and dinner were glorious, cooked with fresh products.
Overall, dealing with Anthony during the year previous to our school trip was a real pleasure!

Dear J Rosset

It was a true pleasure to have you and your class of talented music students staying with us. They where all a pleasure to have stay and are a credit to their school. Thank you for the video of the songs you composed while you where here.
I am delighted to hear having Fisher Street house (our annex building) private to your group was ideal and that you enjoyed my cooking, I enjoyed cooking for you all.
Until we meet again, take care.
Warmest regards
Anthony and Deirdre
