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.

The hostel felt tired compared to others we had stayed in- eg carpet beetle damage in the room and a faulty bathroom light switch. Also the bedding looked as if it had not been changed between users. The public areas e.g. lounge area appeared cosy although we did not use them.

Located in a nice town in a great area. Old inn converted to hostel. Lots of lounge areas. Kitchen well stocked. Two grocery stores near by. Within walking distance. Rooms spacious and clean. Staff very helpful. Would even do laundry for you for a fee. Very good value.
