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.

Never before! In spite of the fact I booked the hostel in March, when we arrived (a family), there was no 1 x 4 Person Private Room available for us, we should go in a 10 people dormitory!!! Firstly a guy proposed a partial refund (only 66 euros!!!) and a B&B accommodation for 105 euro!!! After a discussion, they gave us the same accommodation without any charges, it was a bad ezoerience, first time after more than 180 hostels in Europe!
