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.

This was one of the nicest hostels we stayed at during a 3 week trip through Europe. The warm earthy homey feel, made us a miss home just a little - The staff was very nice and friendly. The room we stayed in was very nice and big for a dorm room, but we had the room all for ourselves. We were a little restricted to use the kitchen facilities during certain hours. The Wifi was only available in the common areas.

Spinnen in jeder Ecke und in jeder Größe. Das war nicht so unsers! Dazu roch das Zimmer muffig - unsere Klamotten waren danach richtig klamm. Es gibt viele gemütliche Aufenthaltsräume, eine große Küche (einfaches Frühstück inklusive) und ein Supermarkt in 5 min. Entfernung.
