“Extremely friendly host”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2010

Nice remote place therefore you need a car. Lots of private safe parking. It wasn't busy when we were there but we could hear every foot step and move the people above us made including a crying infant. The walls were paper thin as we could hear the man next door snoring most of the night. I can only imagine how much sleep you'd get when It gets busy during the summer. They turned the heat on once for a short period and the rest of our stay was rather damp and chilly. We were there to hike and unfortunately it rained all day. Upon our return front desk offered to put our clothes in the dryer, gave us towels and lent us a book about he area. The kitchen area was very clean and had free tea/coffee and wifi. The hospitality was the BEST of all our stays in Ireland.

family-friendly, welcoming, relaxing, super clean, spacious family rooms, the most spectacular views ever . . . Amazing inn-keeper, Farida. . . . she loves her job and it shows. She runs the place beautifully, so attentive to everyone's needs, keeps the kitchen immaculate, and still makes everyone feel at home. And she sends you away with the best tips for an excellent visit to amazing sights in Connemara. Wish we could have stayed longer! Our family of 5 has stayed at over a dozen hostels in Scotland, England, and Ireland . . . hands down, this is the best stay yet.

I stayed at the Sleepzone for two nights, as a party of four (we had two rooms with two in each). My room was particularly spacious, with a double and single bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, etc. Both rooms had their own private bathrooms (yeay!).
The shared kitchen is spacious - two stoves, two sinks, double fridge and plenty of counterspace which is good when there is a large party cooking. There dining room is large and sunny, and separate to the large sitting room, which has a TV, DVD players and lots of books and magazine (mostly in English).
The staff were really friendly and courteous, and even allowed us to use the showers after we had checked out and gone biking for the afternoon (big plus!).
There's plenty of parking, and the location is private and secluded, with beautiful views over Killary Harbour.
The hostel hosted many different visitors the weekend I stayed - couples, groups of friends, large families and school/scout groups, but there was enough space for us all to stay out of each others way :)
I would stay here again, and would strongly recommend it.

The Sleepzone Connemara is a must when you are going to Connemara. The staff is extraordinary helpful and knows the area very well. They look after you and keep the place, especially the kitchen, very clean! The hostel is located directly at the Fjord! The view is superb!!!
