Hello from Doolin Hostel

Welcome to our family run budget accommodation in the centre of Doolin at the Doolin Bus stop. The nearest hostel to the Cliffs of Moher, day trips to the Aran Islands, exploring the Burren and much much more. Ideal for families, international explorers, weekend adventurers, educational groups etc. We are not a hostel that caters for Stag, Hen or similar celebration parties as we are too small to cater for both.

Doolin Hostel has continually evolved with reinvestment and service improvements over the last number of years and is now a 42-bed hostel with twin, triple, 4 bed private and 12-bed dormitory rooms. All rooms are tastefully decorated with minimal fuss and all come with their own private bathrooms with glass door showers. All beds are high quality Sleeptite bunks, with individual LED lights, Electric Sockets, USB / European Sockets. Each bed has its own dedicated locker (locks not provided), all linens and towels are provided.

Downstairs, there is a full self-service kitchen, dining room, living room with stove fire, drying room, computer station with printer, book exchange, Smart TV, and lots of board games. Our sister property, Doolin Inn, is located directly opposite Doolin Hostel and has a full-service coffee shop, small retail outlet and a tourist information point open from 8am-9pm and is also the local Bus Ticket Office.

Free WIFI, Free parking and a large continental breakfast buffet are all included with our compliments.

doolin Hostel is located in the center of Doolin at the start of the Cliffs of Moher Coastal Hiking Trail, at the Doolin Bus Stop overlooking the village and out to sea. Walk to O’Connors Pub, Aran Island Ferries, Cliffs of Moher Cruises and all Doolin Pubs, Restaurants and Shopping.

We are the ideal place to explore the Burren, Doolin Cave, and the Wild Atlantic Way, take a day trip to Galway, Ennis, Limerick or Loop Head. Or get adventurous and go Surfing, Rock Climbing, Caving, Hiking and much much more. Returning each evening to listen to the wonderful traditional Irish Music that plays nightly in the Doolin Irish Music Pubs all year round.

It has received many accolades for customer service from Trivago, Trip Advisor to name a few and green initiatives from Green Hospitality Awards such as Accommodation of the Year. We come highly recommended by many travel publications such as Rick Steves and Lonely Planet. But we are most proud of the thousands of top customer reviews from happy guests we have been so grateful to receive.
