Other Things to Note
Rugged west coast of Ireland at its best, be prepared for stunning scenery and any kind of weather!
We expect guests to be respectful of other guests staying with us.
We allow some pets (must be confirmed prior to arrival).
There is no smoking allowed anywhere in the centre, but we do have designated smoking areas outside.
The space (hostel) is very nice and clean. We had 2 lovely double bedrooms with bathrooms and the breakfast was nice too. The best part was the scenery and surroundings. Beautiful views of the ocean and the cliffs. It was a lovely experience.
This place has a million dollar view hands down. Its a beautiful building in a great location. I would share that there are summer camps based out of the building June-Aug, as was the case during my stay. I did feel like there wasnt really a public space I could go to without hanging out with the campers. The internet was very slow, and only low/semi working speeds were accessible right in the reception office. Also, the room was extremely warm, and didnt seem to have a switch to turn down floor heating.
I was just passing through. I wanted a clean overnight room with no frills. It was operated more as a hostel. Staff was super friendly (did not meet Shane or Mary). Slept well on the bed. Could not have asked for more. Location was spectacular. I would absolutely stay again, maybe as more of destination for my 2 adventure loving sons. Thank you.
Un b&b surprenant et très charmant. Certes les chambres sont des dortoirs mais le cadre est idyllique et l'accueil de Shane et son équipe est plus que chaleureux! Je recommande ce b&b pour le charme irlandais qu'il reflète!
About the Host, Shane
I work here in Killary where my family set up 34 years ago after happening upon this stunning location. In Killary you might meet me or one of my colleagues we are all excited to see you come through the doors and hope you have and amazing time here.
My time here in Connemara, and indeed yours should also, consists of spending time in the outdoors from mountains to the sea it is a great playground to explore.
