Nice hostel, nice volunteer staff, nice location - old school hostel. A 600 meter ben (one of Twelve Bens) is in the back yard, so a great location for hiking.

La situation de l'auberge est mal indiquée. Nous pensions être à galway alors que nous en étions à 70 kms. Pas d'eau potable et problème d'électricité dans les chambres.
