Lonely Planet review
You'll see the pistachio-green Kilronan Hostel perched above Tí Joe Mac's pub even before your ferry docks at the pier, a three-minute walk away. Forty beds are spread across spotless four- and six-bed rooms. A terrace has fine harbour views and eggs in the morning come courtesy of the organically fed chickens out back.
Our independent authors have visited Kilronan Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Inishmór.

Description provided by property
Kilronan Hostel is just 2 minutes' walk from Kilronan Pier on Inis Mor, the largest of the Aran Islands, so you will wake up to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach, as well as spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean from your bedroom window.
At our hostel, comfort and cleanliness are our priorities. We have small dorms, all ensuite, meaning you can stay in comfort at a very reasonable price. There is a spacious and well-equipped kitchen which is open all day for your use, as well as a TV room.
There is free tea and coffee all day long and a light breakfast is included every morning in our well equipped kitchen.
Here you can experience the ancient history of Dn Aengus Fort and the churches of Sant Benan and Teampall Chiarin. Why not pay a visit to the Aran Islands for a unique experience of Ireland as it used to be.

NEW for 2014.
Starting in March 2014 we will be donating $5.00 to an Irish NGO called GOAL for every review of Kilronan Hostel ( good or bad )
GOAL is an International Humanitarian Organization working around the world. The latest country is The Philippines where GOAL is working on food distributions and repairing school buildings that were devastated by Typhoon Yolanda in November 2013.
Please have a look at www.goal.ie to see the great work being done.
The amount donated will be uploaded to the Kilronan Hostel Hostelworld page every month!
