What an amazing experience to stay on the Blasket Islands! Billy was a brilliant tour guide on the boat trip over and took the time to point out local spots of interest and wildlife. We were very lucky to have sunny weather so were able to spend the afternoon on the beach and exploring the island. The hostel itself was simple but cosy, the highlight being the panoramic views from the front door. Such a unique experience to stay on an unspoilt island surrounded by nature and the history of the islanders.

Unfortunately I did not get out to the island due to weather, which I had been warned might happen When I booked. I exchanged several emails and ph calls with Billy leading up to the trip, with prompt response and helpful info.
We had an absolutely fantastic stay on the Great Blasket, Billy and Killian were so helpful and very quick to reply to any queries we had. Would definitely recommend getting the boat with the lads as the views along the coast are breathtaking.
Very comfortable and clean accommodation and surprisingly warm :) Had one of the best nights sleep, only the waves and seals to keep you awake.
Thanks Lads, we will 100% be back some time
Unfortunately we weren't able to reach Great Blasket Island because there were no ferries going at this day because of the stormy weather. To contact Billy was very easy and he refunded the payment without hesitation. Great correspondence. Next time I'm around I'll try to book Billy's offer again.
Billy and Killian were amazing hosts, and there accommodations were perfect for what became the best 3 nights of our 3 week vacation on the Blaskets!
