About this listing
Truly unique Island lodgings in one of the most beautiful and untouched locations in Ireland; spectacular scenery from simple self catering accommodation with basic amenities provided. Dorms to suit individuals and groups, private double rooms also available for couples sharing. Our Eco ferry departs Dingle at a price of €35
Our newly restored accommodation is situated on a unique abandoned island, located at the top of an historical village in the most westerly point of Europe. Rich in wildlife and spectacular scenery. This is as special as it gets. Basic but beautiful.
Guests will have access to toilets, Eco showers (sometimes cold), gas hob, running water and single or double beds. In the evenings we open the cafe as a meeting area for guests to interact with each other, board games provided, table tennis room. Once day trippers leave, guests will have the island to themselves.
Interaction with Guests
When each guest arrives they will be shown how all amenities work, given a guide of all facilities, lodgings and island. There will always be a member of staff on stand by to answer any questions or queries regarding any issues.

Our visit was amazing! we had the luck that there were not so many dayguest during the days we stayed at the island. The peace, quiet and the sun made our stay wonderful.
The accomodation is basic, but enough. Most of the day we were outdoors anyway and the fact that there was no electrical light made for soms cosy nights by the fireplace.
If we visit a second time we want to go a week of maybe 2. Only downside is that I will have to take a cold shower than.
The location is spectacular. The bedroom was cosy. There's no electricity which added to the serenity. The kitchen has a gas hob but I never used it as the scenery is magnetic.
Thanks for allowing us to stay. I hope that the hostel remains open for many Summers to come.
