The Connemara Hostel is an ideal base for outdoors enthusiasts, backpackers, families or anyone just looking to relax in breath-taking landscape of Connemara. 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 one of the most spectacularly situated hostels.

The hostel offers a range of accommodation in private and dormitory rooms, free Wi-Fi & Internet access, bureau de change, tourist information as well as a residents' wine bar, self-catering kitchen and its own tennis court.

It is situated right next door to the Killary Adventure Company, so a range of adventure activities and outdoor pursuits are literally available 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.
