Flanagan's Village Hostel is a small, friendly hostel located on a working family farm in Doolin, Co. Clare. A seaside village famous for its proximity to the awe-inspiring Cliffs of Moher, Doolin is probably best known for its lively pubs where live Irish music can be heard each night and where musicians from all over the world flock to join in the spontaneous sessions. Your host, Gerard Flanagan, a Doolin native and musician, is known locally as a proponent of Doolin's music tradition, and many evenings in Flanagan's feature music sessions, lessons and impromptu set dances around the turf-burning stove in the hostel's flag-floored common room. Having a keen interest in local history and heritage, Gerard is delighted to share information and stories about Doolin that give his visitors a unique perspective on their stay

Flanagan's offers dormitory accomodation in rooms of 4,6,8 and 10 beds, as well as family and private rooms, some ensuite;
a large self-catering kitchen, common room with fireplace, plenty of free hot power showers(no queueing!) laundry facilities on request, bed linens provided. A light breakfast is available on request at no additional cost.

We are located approx 400m from the nearest bus stop and are less than 5 minutes walk to pubs, restaurants, cafe, craft shops, and Doolin Cave Visitor pick-up. Boat trips to the Aran Islands from Doolin Pier, Burren walks, Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience, are just a few of the local attractions. Aillwee Caves, Burren Centre, Burren Perfumery, Lahinch Leisure Centre, are some of the possibilities for daytrips by car making Doolin the ideal base for your holiday in Clare.
