Climber Friendly Hostel
Climber friendly hostel
Are you are going climbing or hiking in The Burren? The Burren offers stunning scenery for the hiker, world class sea cliff climbing, amenable inland crags and one of the best bouldering areas in the country.
Some people will enjoy combining their outdoor adventure with a camping trip, but if you’re looking for something a little more relaxing at the end of your long days activities in The Burren, then consider staying at Doolin Hostel nearby.
This isnt a blog entry as such, just a ringing endorsement of a local hostel, with whom I work with all the time.
Doolin Hostel is an award winning and family run hostel. The owner, Anthony Moloney, likes to climb himself and when not busy running the hostel, can be found bouldering at nearby Lackglass.
The hostel is situated in the centre of Doolin village, opposite the bus stop and a stones throw away from the pubs. So when you’re finished enjoying the outdoors, you can spend an evening listening to traditional Irish music in the world famous Doolin pubs.
There is plenty of parking at the hostel if you have your own car. Plus Anthony can arrange for safe and secure gear storage. Or,if you need to rent a boulder pad, he can help you rent one. Or even a bike, if thats your thing.
Its worth noting this isnt your usual run down back packer hostel. The rooms are fresh and clean, the facilities are modern and the atmosphere is friendly. They offer dorms, family rooms and private rooms. So if you’re travelling solo, as a family or as a small group of back packers, they have something for everyone. Theres even a drying room on site, because occasionly it rains it Ireland, but only occasionly.
