Just had a really lovely few days at the Go Explore Hostel on Clare Island, Co. Mayo. Beautiful spot, very very helpful and friendly staff. Plenty of people at the place as it has a bar next door, separate from the hostel. Plenty of peace and quiet if that's what you want. And excellent facilities. The chillout sitting room is faced onto the sea with huge windows to gaze at the ocean for as long as you like. Plenty of interesting activities being organised by this new hostel for outdoor types. Highly recommended!!
Lovely place, lovely people
