Cong Hostel & Caravan & Camping Park Reviews

Cong Hostel & Caravan & Camping Park is on a campsite and also caters to the campers. The level of cleanliness is acceptable, but is not extraordinary. The reception, common room, dorms, kitchen and showers are all in different parts of the building.

The Location

The hostel is located about a mile (two kilometers) from the the village of Cong, where the movie "The Quiet Man" was filmed. A vehicle is strongly recommended for access for this hostel. Buses do go through Cong but the walk is bit far. This is not a very social hostel, as the majority of those here are camping just across the way.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms are very small and cramped. There is no place to lock up or store your belongings. The halls are very narrow and the walls are very thin -- any sort of noise is heard by most of the rooms on the hall passage. The bathrooms and showers are downstairs. There are male and female showers and bathrooms but the showers are coin-operated.

Common Spaces

The common space is in another part of the building, next to the laundry facility, upstairs. There is a couch and chairs and a table but no TV, games, or books. There is very poor Wi-Fi reception in the entire building and a very long password.


The location feels remote and the lack of security can be unnerving, as the building is not locked up at night, except for the laundry facility and the common room. A skeleton key is given for the rooms at reception. The stairs are narrow and the kitchen is basic. The cooking pots and pans and utensils are grungy and there is dust on the dishes. The dry food storage is very high and hard to each and there is limited refrigerated space.

Nice place, good value

I stayed one night in early August 2008. I was happy with the accommodations. The self-catering kitchen and dining area were clean and surprisingly large, and the grounds offered the chance for sunshine and fresh air. The staff was friendly, courteous, and well-informed about the area, and they provided me with some special assistance in making last minute travel arrangements. I would stay there again.

i stayed at the hostel in 2005. the hospitality shown to both my partner and i was first class. the taste of fresh pike caught in loch corrib by two anglers staying at the hostel and then shared by all staying there was a memory i took away from ireland and will cherish forever. very clean and tidy an ideal base for discovering the west of ireland and i am looking forward to going back.

Only my memory of how dark it was returning to the hostel, alone in the dark on the by-pass path out of town on the long walk back to hostel, makes me deny this hostel the very top rating. This place had nice, well-maintained buildings, good facilities, and friendly and helpful owners. I plan to return in 2006.

Clean, comfortable, and friendly, with a very pleasant walk into town. We can't wait to go back!
