Staff was very friendly and helpful showing us where we could go walking. The kitchen is clean and well-organized and the common rooms are friendly and cozy....

A friend of mine and I stayed at the sleepzone Connemara for one night and were overwhelmed by the friendliness of the staff. They answered all of our silly questions, told us the best route to the beach and even offered us to borrow some bicycles so that we will be quicker.
