Very accessible if you have a car. We loved John's tip of driving the Gap of Dunloe route, as our reading had us thinking it was only for foot traffic. The accommodations served us well- loved the private bath and access to the large kitchen.

John's Hostel was very nice and clean. Good idea with the self-doing breakfast. His knowhow and ideas for family tour where very helpful and liked from our children. We would again visit his hostel if we travel around killarny. Thank you very much John!
