I stayed for one night in a family room, the room was adequate and clean, although there was a spider in the room which I had to call for help from another family member to remove. The hostel was not busy at this time of year and we were shown around on arrival. This hostel would be great for a...

I came to the hostel with my boyfriend and his family, we stayed for two nights and absolutely loved it. The building is beautiful and they'd loads to offer - kayaking, archery (pay extra), loads of board games, ping pong and pool. There was a very nice atmosphere and all other guests staying were very friendly. The one thing that...

Had a night in the hostel on the way round the wild Atlantic way. Located just outside Skibbereen the hostel is an old mill. You can stay in the hostel or camp outside. Interior slightly quirky. Good kitchen. Huge dining table. Record player and lots of 60's - 70's vinyl for all the nostalgics out there. Table tennis and pool...

This place has it all, a warming feel, activities, the beach and town close by. Above all, super friendly staff, who are always ready to lend an ear and offer recommendations or places to go for a day out. Not to mention having archery and a few other activities in their back garden! Comfy beds and good night's sleep. Would...

Walking through the door of this hostel, you feel you're entering a special place. It's far enough outside Skibbereen to feel rural and secluded. The old mill has been beautifully renovated, room by room, and is clean and tasteful. The kitchen is airy and bright and has plenty of space for people to cook alongside each other on the two...

I stayed for three nights with two of my kids, 5 and 6 year olds. They loved it and didn't want to leave. So much for them to do and other kids to play with. Lovely beach just down the road and a Lidl nearby for bits and bobs. I definitely want to go back. Staff were very friendly and...
