Owned and run by Mattie & Carmel Shannon, the Rainbow Hostel in Doolin is situated on a working farm , Doolin is famous for its Irish traditional music.

The hostel is a converted cottage where the Shannon family ran a tailoring business for over 100 years until the 1970s. The hostel, established in 1986, is small and cosy having just 24 beds, including private double rooms and a twin room and has a simple and relaxed atmosphere. Facilities include a self-catering kitchen, laundry, bike hire and open turf fire in the common room. When you stay with us, every effort will be made to make you feel at home.

Mattie has a keen interest in the archaeology and nature of the area and most evenings will be very glad to share his knowledge and experience with the hostellers. This includes taking them for a guided walk and showing his wide range of slides in the common room by the fire.
