Music Group

We brought a group of kids and adults to walk in nearby mountain trail and to play music. The hostel is absolutely beautiful. The living room area is perfect for a group , roaring fire cosy couches. The hostel is luxury all the way and we will definitely be back. It is located in lovely small safe town and close to beautiful scenery. The rooms are fab and our kids loved the whole layout of the hostel. Thanks again for a brilliant time.

We will be back!

I couldn't put into words how great this place is. We stayed here with 30 children that we took away for the night that are all learning music instruments. Our only rule with the kids coming was that phones & tablets stayed at home. We had such a great time, its just a lovely safe environment, with loads of various games to play with. It felt at home immediately when you walked thru the doors and met with Seamus & Teresa. Their facilities was just top class. I was just blown away with their kitchen, they seemed to have thought of everything. The only piece of advice I can give you Seamus & Teresa is stay doing exactly what you’re doing.

Exceptional! Highly Recommend

We brought a group of teenagers here for 3 days and can't recommend it enough. From the time we booked to when we left the carpark, Séamus and Teresa were the most friendly and welcoming hosts ever (especially considering our group!)

The facilities are state of the art and everywhere was immaculately clean. The bathrooms and individual showers were plenty and spotless. Towels and bedclothes were all crisp white and super soft. The beds were extremely comfortable and the bunks have huge space in between for taller people! The whole place is designed with stunning woodwork all made by Seamus and gives a lovely homely feel. The kitchen is fully stocked with every utensil you might need and also a lot of extra food supplies!

Seamus and Teresa are full of local information but also tourist attractions further afield that you might want to visit. They aren't put off by singing or music (supplying guitars and a piano) in fact they enjoy the hostel being full of life. They welcome all types of groups from school and youth groups to stag and hens and make everyone feel so welcome! Our young people were so impressed that they remembered all their names, weren't strict and were 'up for a laugh' !!

We will definitely return and will recommend it to everyone we know.

Feels like home

Stayed a week with 31 youngsters and 9 adults. The whole hostel was booked just for us! And it was just perfect!!! All the rooms and common areas worked great, we had enough room to spend time together and even practice our wind band during the stay.

Every day we left the hostel to go around and coming back here was like coming back home! And the food, it was delicious (we had Irish and Continental breakfasts, lunches and dinners during the week from hostel)!!

Teresa and Séamus are just perfect to this job: They were always so happy and ready to help in any way, planning our trip program, finding us new ideas, transporting music instruments, repairing broken oboe :) and always - with a smile and happiness!!

Thank you SO much for everything!

Girlguiding Anglia - ICE trip

We had 3 leaders and 20 guides, Seamus and Theresa were amazing, nothing too much. We used their contacts and knowledge so we had an amazing time (communuity service, Lough Gur, local coach company etc). the hostel we had to ourselves and everything was really clean, the girls loved chilling out in the lounge. Definitely on our list to re-visit with other guides.
