The Doolin Hostel also offers an Inn which isn't listed on the Tripadvisor page. Great facilities, amazing breakfast, & unbelievably clean!! They had a great family room which we used for our family of 5! I've been to over 25 European countries, and this is one of the best hostels I've been to! Highly recommend!

This hostel is more like a hotel. Our room was quaint, comfortable and immaculate. The pillows are fluffy and the bed is very comfy. Breakfast in the morning is in a beautiful cafe setting and was delicious. Many options to choose from. Can't say enough great things about this place.

Let me preface this by saying that this was the only hostel we stayed in so it's difficult to rate our experience the b&b's we've been staying in. We had a room en suite in the newer building across from the hostel. The room was fairly spacious but otherwise unremarkable. Bathroom was oddly configured with the way the door opened...

I stayed in a double room at Doolin Inn and I must say it was fantastic. The furniture was new and the bed was really comfortable. Breakfast was included but consisted of cereals, yoghurt, fruit, tea... If you wish something cooked for breakfast you have to pay for it. The location is perfect if you want to visit the Cliffs...

This hostel is fab, one of the best I have been in, with the price for sharing very reasonable. Very close to the bars and can go for lovely walks. Not too far from the ferry to Inis Mor either. With regard to the hostel, it was spotless, breakfast included continental which was very good too. Would highly recommend.

I didn't stay at the Doolin Hostel but Cliff Coast Coffee is attached to it and I thought it was terrific! We were on our way to the Doolin Cave but there is no transportation there from the bus stop, so one of the friendly staff members at Cliff Coast Coffee kindly called a taxi for us. After our Doolin...

The Doolin Hostel is AMAZING. Other than sharing a room with several other people, it is not at all like your standard hostel. It is the most charming, beautiful, laid back place I've ever stayed. I was there a week and wished I could have stayed longer. I plan to return for a longer visit this summer. The breakfast that...

We went to Doolin for a music festival and the hostel was a perfect place to stay, walking distance from bars with live music and from the Doolin pier. Delicious breakfast, very cosy space. We loved it! :)

We have stopped in at the hostel coffee and cake when in the area a number of times. We decided to stay for a couple of nights in February and use it as base camp for exploration of The Burren. The hostel is well situated for the the Cliffs of Moher and the moonscape of The Burren, and Doolin Pier...

Myself, my wife and 2 daughters travelled to doolin as a group of 50 for part of a music competition. The rooms were very much of a hotel standard than a hostel. The view from our family room was incredible, the rooms were spotless and the staff were great. Would definitely recommend.
