Clare Island Panorama

No matter what your interest is, if you love being active in the great outdoors, we’re sure we have an outdoor adventure package that you’ll love.  And we’ll be happy to put together a winter group getaway package to suit your requirements.Common Room fire

Although the hostel is closed to the general public from October to April, we regularly open it through the winter months for private groups, and they generally find it a special experience to have the place to themselves.

We can tailor the package to meet your needs, but the following is a general guideline as to what’s on offer:

Single Night Package is €100 per person and includes return ferry from Roonagh, bed & full Irish breakfast in Go Explore Hostel, soup and sandwich lunch and a three course meal in Sailor’s Bar & Restaurant.

Two Nights Package is €173 per person and includes return ferry, two nights bed & full Irish breakfast, one soup and sandwich lunch and one three course evening meal.

Optional Extras:

  • Lunch (Soup & Sambo) €10 per person
  • Add adventure activity + €50 per person
