The Connemara Hostel (part of Galway's award-winning Sleepzone Hostel Group) is the perfect Connemara base for outdoors enthusiasts, backpackers ; families looking for value for money base from which to explore Connemara, or anyone just looking to relax in this breathtaking landscape.
Overlooking The Killary - Ireland's only fjord - and surrounded by the peaks of The Twelve Bens, Maumturk and Mweelrea mountains in the centre of Connemara, it is probably one of the most spectacularly situated hostels anywhere in Western Europe.
Sleepzone Connemara offers a range of accommodation in private and dormitory rooms (over 100 beds in 21 rooms) - all ensuite, free WiFi & internet access, bureau de change, tourist information as well as a residents' wine bar, self-catering kitchen and its own tennis court.
Another of its attractions is that it is situated right next door to the Killary Adventure Company, so a range of adventure activities and outdoor pursuits are available literally on its doorstep.
It's also a great base for some of Connemara's most fantastic walks and hikes; scuba diving, fishing and beaches are all nearby, and bike rental is also available. Please ask our staff at reception - they will gladly share their knowledge of the area with you.
If activity doesn't appeal to you though, the serenity of the location of Sleepzone Connemara is an attraction in itself. Watch a movie from our movie library, read a book or meet other guests in one of our common rooms.
