Welcome to our hostel

The Burren hostel is situated in the spa town of Lisdoonvarna, County Clare from where it boasts close proximity to some of Ireland's most famous areas of natural beauty, including the world-renowned Cliffs of Moher, towering 200m above the ocean, and The Burren region – 400sq miles of unique limestone terrain.

The hostel provides an accommodation in single rooms and 4 to 10 bed dorms. Facilities include Internet access, self-catering kitchen, common rooms, garden, Tour bureau and laundry.

It's in a great location directly across the road from traditional music in The Road side Inn, Clare's best pub food in The Wild Honey Inn, and The Burren Smokehouse which supplies some of the best salmon in Ireland. The area is perfect for travellers who love hiking.

Liked our room. The heat was on when we came back home from dinner but was found off when we got up in the morning. Slept well but was cold trying to get up and out without heat, 41 degrees out. I wasn't sure how to use the shower, so had to use the bathtub which had a hot and cold water faucet. Was hard to rinse my hair then with only burning hot or freezing cold water.

das Kücheninventar war nicht ausreichend, Zuwenig Bestecke und Geschirr, Kochtöpfe. Die Sauberkeit der Küche war schlecht

Frühstück super wenig und Zimmer stank Urin. Schön war das Kaminzimmer und freies WLAN. Freier Kaffee und Kakao war auch toll.

One of the Better hostels I stayed at the staff was so friendly & helped me to rent a bike in town. I stayed in a private room, internet did not work in the room but it was spacious with a full sized bed. It was close to town not far from Doolin or the Cliffs of Moher.

The Staff was extremely friendly even helped me to rent a bike. The hostel is located in a cute town near Doolin & the Cliffs of Moher. I had a private room with a full sized bed and bathroom, internet did not work inside the room but it was a good night sleep.
