The Connemara Hostel West of Ireland

The Connemara Hostel in the West of Ireland (Sleepzone) is the perfect base for groups to explore the breathtaking landscape of the West of Ireland and the Wild Atlantic Way. Overlooking The Killary – Ireland’s only fjord and surrounded by the peaks of Mweelrea, The Twelve Bens and Maumturk mountains in the centre of Connemara. The Sleepzone Connemara Hostel is one of the most spectacularly situated hostels in Ireland and Europe. Location wise it just doesn’t get better than this!

This hostel was originally built in the late 1800’s and was formerly a hunting lodge. It has now been tastefully converted into one of the most comfortable Connemara hostels.

Member of the awarding winning Sleepzone Hostels group in Galway & Clare.

The hostel features some fantastic facilities for groups and it even has its own tennis court PLUS access to a range of organised outdoor adventure pursuits at the Killary Adventure Centre , which is neighbouring the hostel.

The Connemara Hostel offers groups a range of room types – all ensuite (showers and toilets located in the rooms), from multi-bedded rooms for students (10, 8, 6 & 4 bedded rooms) to single and twin rooms for leaders and coach drivers.
