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.
