We welcome people of all ages and all our rooms are ensuite: we have Double rooms, Twin rooms and Family rooms for 3-5 people and also dorm rooms.
A breakfast menu is available for a small fee.

If it’s traditional Irish music you want, we are a five-minute walk from any pub in Doolin Village, where you can hear or play traditional music every night of the week. To get away from it all, a ten-minute stroll down a country lane will take you to the wild Atlantic coast and the barren limestone landscape, the beginning of the Burren. A stunning walk down the coast will bring you to the famous Cliffs of Moher. Doolin’s Aille River Tourist Hostel is a perfect base for exploring the landscapes and seascapes of this magical corner of Ireland.
