The most reasonably priced accommodation on the island and worth every cent. Beds are snug, rooms clean, sheets fresh -towels included- and the showers hot (not a guarantee everywhere on a backpacker budget). Plus Dave was awesome! Breakfasts in the morning were more than just toast and tea, a nice change, and the available full kitchen was put to good use with Spar a minute's walk up the road. Dave is more than accommodating and made us feel very welcome! This place is a gem overlooking the harbour with a bar next door, if you make it to this beautiful island make sure to stay here!

Visited the island in late Nov 2016 and after a long and sunny day biking around the island I had a powerful thirst and about 40 min before the ferry sailed back to Galway. Upon returning my bike I asked the proprietor what bar was still open in this low season he pointed up to the Tigh Joe Mac Bar.

Inside I found a group of locals, all speaking Irish. A nice fire burned in the hearth and the Guinness and Powers Irish whiskey hit the spot.

Very cozy on a cold day.

Originally came for 3 nights and ended up staying for 6 because I liked it so much. Staff were incredible and were great at fostering a social atmosphere where guests feel comfortable immediately. Kitchen and dining area are quite large and have everything you need to cook up a feast. Cozy lounge with a huge book exchange. Ensuite 4 bed room was really nice as it had plenty of room for bags and moving around a bit. All in all, this hostel is run in an old school way where the owner (and Frenchie manager) is hands on and provides personal service to his guests. Really wish more hostels like this still existed in this part of the world, but that is what sets this place apart. Lastly, Dave you're my hero (sorry about those election results buddy).

We came to the Aran islands as a group of ten people who wanted to explore the island. We felt more than comfortable in the hostel - we could hang out, relax and watch movies in the cozy living room but also drink, sing and go out for pints in the bar next door as well - the hostel offered us to do both. The rooms were clean and nice as well. The kitchen offered a rich breakfast with flexible times, all day access to toast and hot drinks. The hostel is right by the pier and bike hire - a perfect starting point for every trip to the beautiful cliffs on this absolutely stunning and cathartic island. I will definitely come back!!
