It was my first time staying in a hostel and I don't think we could have picked better one. It was an absolute postcard picture to look at beside the river. The rooms were lovely and clean. We had a downstairs dormroom with 4 bunks in it, and it was full on both nights. I would have liked more hooks or a shelf of some sort to hang my stuff in the downstairs bathroom but that is just nit picking really, there was a great atmosphere in the hostel itself and the owner was there at the time we were and really understands the quirkyness of a pet briquette..... The hostel itself was quiet with comfortable beds, and Doolin is a lovely quaint little place. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone and I hope to come back again at some stage, we might even bring Brick!
