Stayed for just one night 29th Sept. 2012, wished I had stayed longer, will next time. Came here with 3 friends for a night out in Lisdoonvarna for the match-making festival. We had 2 x 2 bunk beds and a double bed in room, spacious room, with bathroom. We had a brilliant night doing a pub crawl, spent most of the night in Meg Macguires dancing. In the morning we were not sure whether breakfast was included, so we popped down and the very friendly staff showed us the breakfast room, u help yourself to tea and toast, beautiful scones, it was a pleasant surprise as we were dying for cuppa! Thanks for wonderful weekend!

The Burren Hostel is alright for what it is, a hostel. the only problem is that they charge the price of a B&B (even of you don't get a decent breakfast).
We booked a double room online with my partner and we ended up in a dorm room.
There was just us in the dorm but still... it wasn't the romantic double room we were hoping for.
Very disappointing...

Just back from Sleepzone - Burren Hostel!!
What a pleasant surprise we are a family of 4 with 2 very active teenagers and are just back from a 3 night stay in Sleepzone Burren.
Exactly what it says on the tin! We used the hostel as a base and spent a day on Inis Oirr after taking a ferry from Doolin! Weather was excellent and fare to Island also included a return trip via the Cliffs of Moher. Another day was spent with my teenage kids getting surfing lessons on Fanore Beach. Spent yesterday evening swimming with Dusty the Dolphin in Doolin harbour.

Roadside Tavern is a 3 minute walk offering excellent food at realistic prices. Burren Black stout is made in their own micro brewery!! Thought I had died and gone to heaven!! Live traditional and jazz music on alternate nights. Burren smokehouse directly across the road.

As for the hostel this used to be a hotel in the past and you get to use the original hotel kitchen with walk in cold room...... no domestic fridges here! Complimentary continental breakfast. Free tea and coffee up to 11 pm. Free Wi-Fi, comfortable TV room with library. My teenagers spent the evening playing cards and meeting fellow teenagers from all over the world. Felt a little like the United Nations - email addresses exchanged.

All in all top marks for this gem of a hostel and will definitely return again. 6 bedroom family room for 60 euro per night with private bathroom! So save your money on accomodation and enjoy dining out and tons of fun filled activities for all the family. Definitely a recession buster!

Just stayed with the family ( four unruly kids ) and I have to say it was most excellent , kids enjoyed themselves and had a great time in the hostel , with plenty of space and patience for them . The room was spacious and the amenities spot on . Staff are wonderful . It makes a great base for heading off around the beautiful Burren and the rest of beautiful Clare . Kitchen facilities are top notch , and the Dining room , common areas and TV room are most comfortable . Parking is great ,and the location is perfect , seconds walk from the Pub ( the Roadside Tavern ), the local shops , and Bus stop yet nicely secluded and not bustling .

We chose this hostel as our “base” for trips around (Doolin caves, Cliffs of Moher, etc.), location is great. We were 4 people and had 6 bed room, which was large with private bathroom with WC and bathtub. Air in the room was a bit stale, but room and bathroom was clean. Staff was really great and helpful. We could cook anything in fully equipped kitchen, in fact we didn’t cook anything, but possibility was there. We just made tea, which was free and used mugs which were sometimes not well washed up, because dishes is washing up by guests – but probably everyone checks dishes before use, so no big deal. Near hostel is take away China restaurant or pizza. For me, rooms were a bit cold, but other 3 fellows were OK :-) I could recommend this hostel and I would return there again.
