The Connemara Hostel is a sister hostel of the highly-rated Sleepzone in Galway City.

Overlooking The Killary - Ireland's only fjord - and surrounded by the peaks of The Twelve Bens, Maumturk and Mweelrea mountains in the centre of Connemara, it is probably one of the most spectacularly situated hostels anywhere in Western Europe.

The Connemara Hostel offers a range of accommodation in private and dormitory rooms (over 100 beds in 21 rooms) - all ensuite, free WiFi & internet access, bureau de change, tourist information as well as a fully-equipped self-catering kitchen and its own tennis court.

Another of its attractions is that it is situated right next door to the Killary Adventure Company, so a range of adventure activities and outdoor pursuits are available literally on its doorstep.

It's also a great base for some of Connemara's most fantastic walks and hikes; scuba diving, fishing and beaches are all nearby, and bike rental is also available. Please ask our staff at reception - they will gladly share their knowledge of the area with you.

If activity doesn't appeal to you though, the serenity of the location of Sleepzone Connemara is an attraction in itself. Watch a movie from our movie library, read a book or meet other guests in one of our common rooms.

N.B. Remember this property is quite isolated. While we have vending machines that sell drinks and snacks, if planning on preparing meals yourself it is advisable to bring food with you, rather than having to drive or walk a few miles to buy groceries.
