"Great Connemara Hostel" Old Monastery Hostel Tip by Blueglass

Old Monastery Hostel, Letterfrack: 125 reviews and 0 photos

This Hostel is in the Village of Letterfrack, and as the name suggests is an Old Monastery building. We have visited before, and this time we were four. The hostel is very unusual and has open fires and quaint old bric a brac in all room. Sometimes it had cobwebs, but it had been painted up. We are glad to see the bric a brac replaced so it has paint now AND it has the charm. The village is a minute by walking and so is The Diamond Mountain. Breakfast is at 9am and is part of the price to stay (Egg, homemade Irish bread and scone, oatmeal porridge, fruit). It was very relaxing and enjoyable. While it is not the newest of bed and room, it has this charm that is all its own. Nine out of Ten marks!

Unique Qualities: Views, Fireplace, decoration, best bathroom in the world for atmosphere (you must see!)
