“Girls Weekend Away”
Reviewed 10 April 2011

Four of us stayed here from Friday to Sunday. We got a friendly welcome from everyone in the area! Our room was 'cozy' but perfect for a weekend away. We had our own bathroom which was clean. The location was ideal, right next to a pub, across from Supermac's, around the corner from Spar and above the bike rental shop! There is a large kitchen/dining area with every facility for tea, coffee, breakfast, cooking facilities including milk, bread, salt pepper etc. A sitting room with plasma tv, sky digital, internet and loads of up to date dvds and books!
I highly recommend this hostel for a cheap and cheerful get away with a group of friends!

Just home from an amazing weekend on Inis Mór. Kilronan hostel is the ideal place to stay. It's central to pubs, shops & restaurants. Only a few minutes walk from the pier and the beach is virtually on your doorstep. Dave the owner couldnt have been more hospitable. The dorm rooms were comfy & clean. The kitchen was well equipped & spotless. The local people were welcoming and friendly. The scenery is breath taking. Overall a fantastic experience.

Dave and his staff were all very friendly and knowledgable about what to see/do and how to get there. The vibe of the place was the same you get when you crash at a friend's house for a night. The rooms were comfortable and the location was convenient to the ferry. If your traveling to Ireland, then you should see the Arans an there is no need to stay at a hotel or b & b when you could stay here.

Thanks

Kilronan Hostel is a perfect place for anyone looking for a good, clean place to stay and also a fun, down-to-earth atmosphere. The owner, Dave, is really cool and personable and knows a lot about what to do and how to have a good time on the island. My first stay here I ended up staying three extra days, biking around and hanging out with the staff. Now I'm back again. They have free high speed wifi and internet, the place is clean, showers are hot, breakfast is plentiful -- rooms are small but clean and the beds are comfortable. And the island itself is really, really beautiful, rain or shine.

I gave this place two tries--once in 2009 and 2010. No better the second time around. Dirty, noisy, mold growing in the rooms. Advertised towels available but "no problem" there are none. Any problem is "no problem" meaning it is no problem for the staff because they will do nothing to correct the situation. Breakfast was awful, the worst we had in 21 days in Ireland. How about splurging and actually getting something other than the cheapest, worst white bread for toast?
The location is convenient to the ferry and the pubs and restaurants in Kilronan but I will not stay here again. Inis Mor is so lovely that it would almost compensate for staying at this place but why do that when there are other alternatives?
