Just back from a trip to exploring the Burren with my mother. We received a very warm welcome at Corofin hostel, I camped on site and my mum opted for a bed in the hostel. We both had a great experience here and I certainly will be back.
The hostel owner was lovely and gave us lots of tips to help us on our way about:
There is a free bus that runs from the village to several locations around the Burren, which we made use of - and excellent service paid for by the NPWS (I think) and Inchiquin lake is within walking distance from the village (20 min walk).
Gorgeous site and the hostel is fully equipped and right in the heart of the village. Hard to beat I would think!
