The most reasonably priced accommodation on the island and worth every cent. Beds are snug, rooms clean, sheets fresh -towels included- and the showers hot (not a guarantee everywhere on a backpacker budget). Plus Dave was awesome! Breakfasts in the morning were more than just toast and tea, a nice change, and the available full kitchen was put to good...

Visited the island in late Nov 2016 and after a long and sunny day biking around the island I had a powerful thirst and about 40 min before the ferry sailed back to Galway. Upon returning my bike I asked the proprietor what bar was still open in this low season he pointed up to the Tigh Joe Mac Bar....

I stayed in Kilronan Hostel for one night (unfortunately). Location is perfect, close to the pier, shops, bars, restaurants, tourist office and the tour vans. Staff is really friendly (specially Jill, she really looks after you and makes you feel like home) and the hostel is super clean! I would come back indeed!

Kilronan is a really cosy hostel, great view and prices! The kitchen is big, so plenty of space to cook. The manager of the Hostel, Dave, is really nice as well and always does what ever he can to answer questions, advise or jokes around. Defiantly worth the stay - and the money!
