We arrived at the hostel on a dark, wet and windy night to find that our room had been upgraded! The room was big and very clean with a large and very comfortable double bed which had lovely clean sheets on it. The en suit was nice and clean with a good shower that had lovely HOT water, which was exactly what we needed to warm up on our night of arrival and the next after a long day of hiking. After we worked out how to turn on the heating the room warmed up a treat. Possibly the best part of our trip was the breath taking view from our room (which was named Maulin) presumably after the rather large mountain that could be seen in all its glory through the window from the bed. The duty manager was extremely accommodating and very friendly. She gave us advice about good places to go for food and allowed us to borrow one of the hostel maps when we were hiking up to Prince Williams Seat on a rather windy day to make sure we didn't get lost. On the last morning of our stay we ordered the hill walkers breakfast which was wonderfully cooked and very tasty on a lovely sunny morning. There was great facilities for cooking your own food and a wonderful comfortable TV room to sit in and relax. Basically I cant recommend this hostel enough. It made our trip to Ireland wonderful and I will defiantly be returning with friends in the summer!
