Go Explore Hostel is owned and operated by Carl O’ Grady, a Clare Island local. Originally the House of the O’Donnell’s (landlords of the Clew Bay area in the mid 1800s), the hostel building was completely renovated in 2012 and now offers modern, high quality food, beverage & accommodation facilities.

Sitting on top of a small cliff, surrounded by open Atlantic waters, stunning views can be appreciated from all bedrooms, the common room and the on-site bar/restaurant.  We’re proud to have created a warm and welcoming space, and we invite you to come experience it for yourself.

The hostel experience brings groups closer together helping team building and internal co-ordination and organisation.

The hostel can accommodate groups up of to 42 in modern en-suite dorm style bedrooms. We also operate a 3 star B&B close to the hostel which can accommodate those that would prefer not to share accommodation (note – B&B rates are not included in standard packages).
