A great ad for the original spirt of hostelling...the volunteers were the engine that did it all! Jenny baked and advised on walks and was a great manager...the two helpers were super too as was the other big guy from Dublin... Well done to these generous people.

For hikers & nature appreciators, dream location! Ben Lettery, Diamond Hill, Dog's Bay beach, Gurteen Bay beach -- amazing! Because of location, one of the best among 5 Irish hostels stayed in. (But poor bus access.) Volunteer staff helpful & friendly. Managers sometimes helpful & informative, sometimes seeming bored or cold toward guests. No option to lock valuables, & staff discouraged locking bedrooms (???!), with building never locked. Comfortable atmosphere, quality rooms, appliances, beds.

Séjour très agréable, bonne ambiance et paysages merveilleux !! Un seul petit bémol sur le petit déjeuner inexistant (nous ne le savions pas).
