Built in the late 1800s this former hunting lodge has been converted into one of the most comfortable hostels anywhere in Europe. The Connemara Hostel has 85 beds in 21 ALL en suite rooms – both private and dormitory. The hostel has some fantastic facilities; residents’ lounge with pool table, free internet and Wi-Fi access, cable TV, self-catering kitchen, barbeque terrace, outdoor camping facility, tennis court, bicycle hire and access to a range of organised outdoor adventure pursuits on its doorstep.
The Connemara Hostel is spectacularly situated in the heart of Connemara overlooking the Killary – Ireland’s only fjord.
Connemara is one of the most scenic regions in Ireland, a place where the Irish language is still in everyday use. Its craggy mountain peaks, expansive sandy beaches and laced network of lakes exemplify the peaceful solitude and rugged beauty of The West of Ireland.
