About Mike After backpacking the world from the age of 21- 28 I came back to Connemara which is where I am from and built a Lodge that is comfortable for fellow travelors that ticks all the boxes. The Lodge Restaurant and Bar has a great festive atmosphere in summer with plenty of live music. In winter it becomes a cosy haven where the locals drop in for a coffee, and happily engage. It is one of the most friendly places you will and where you get close to Mike, Hilda, Vicky, Janet who work the restaurant and reception like it is there own home. Specificationwise, this hostel has 3 large kitchens & 11 en-suite rooms. Rest assured, your stay here will be one of the best you’ll have in Ireland. The ensuite room’s range from double/triple/dorm to family rooms according to the customer needs. There are also another 5 double rooms that are ensuite. There are 3 large well-equipped kitchens, 3 dining areas, a barbecue balcony and 2 sitting/TV/reading rooms. A laundry room and the Internet are also available.
