Kilronan Hostel is everything you could want in a hostel or in B&B/Hotel. Clean and tidy rooms with spectacular views, friendly staff and a lovely snug pub with a roaring fire a 10 second walk away. You wont want to leave, Jill and Kevin do a great job at making you feel welcome.

We really fell in love with the biggest island of the aran islands. Inis mor was one of our best weekend trips. Beautiful coast ways and lovely pubs really made us feeling so comfortable. Our host gave us excellent tips and we were able to rent bikes for just 10 euro a day. From our hostel room we could see... More

I arrived in Inis Mor with the Mayo music group Flat Out and booked into Kilronan Hostel right beside the ferry. Despite the island being very busy that weekend the staff at Kilronan managed to squeeze me into a dorm even though my booking was very last minute. Also, as I was in crutches with a broken leg they also... More

Stayed here last week with three friends and, despite inclement weather, really enjoyed the trip. The hostel was clean and WARM, the kitchen bright and spacious, and the staff really friendly, particularly Jill and Kevin. Breakfast included too, as well as a computer and TV in the comfy common room. Ar fheabhas!

Stayed here for one night with three friends. Great experience with the staff and really enjoyed the atmosphere. Beds comfy but room a bit small. Really nice host and very helpful. Plenty of communal space and all very welcoming.

We loved staying at Kilronan Hostel! The staff welcomed us with open arms. They had a nice kitchen area, which included toast and tea in the mornings, and a comfortable common room. The location was great and they offered bike rentals on site. Would definitely stay there again!

We sort of stumbled into the Kilronan Hostel on a trip to Inis Mór and were immediately welcomed by Kevin, who offered us a place to store our bags while waiting for the room as well as managed to shuffle some things around so we could all be in the same room.

Had a great time here! It's only a couple of minutes walk from the ferry port, so it couldn't have been easier to get to. It's a stone's throw from the waterfront so you get a great view from many of the rooms, as well as walking out the door. The room was nice and clean and very well-kept. The... More

We had a really great stay in the Kilronan Hostel! We stayed in a 4-bed room (en suite) which was very clean and had a great view on the port and the beach. Unfortunately, the beds’ mattresses were really hard and quite uncomfortable. The staff was really friendly and helpful and even offered us towels when we arrived. The kitchen... More
