Clare Island Hostel, Go Explore Hostel & Sailor’s Bar / Restaurant Clare Island, Budget Accommodation, County Mayo, Ireland
Welcome to Clare Island Hostel “Go Explore Hostel Mayo”. We are a newly renovated budget hostel near Westport on one of Ireland’s most beautiful and interesting westerly islands called Clare Island.
Go Explore Hostel is located in the House of the O’Donnell’s, landlords of the Clew Bay area in the mid 1800s, on top of a small cliff surrounded by open Atlantic waters. Purpose built in 2012, Go Explore Hostel, Clare Island has all modern facilities and hosts an in-house traditional bar with traditional music, dancing, food and fun. Sailor’s Bar & Restaurant is the Entertainment, Food & Accommodation epicentre on Clare Island hosting live acts such as Declan O’Rourke, Leo & Anto from the Sawdoctors, Paddy Casey and many more.
We didn't stay here but had dinner and a few pints. Carl is a gent and the American couple staying there were really nice too. The food was great and the couple we met said the room was extremely clean and comfortable. We will be sure to recommend to our friends if they ever head this direction!
