We came to the Aran islands as a group of ten people who wanted to explore the island. We felt more than comfortable in the hostel - we could hang out, relax and watch movies in the cozy living room but also drink, sing and go out for pints in the bar next door as well - the hostel offered...

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!
