Welcome to Katie O'Connors Holiday Hostel - a family run hostel where a warm welcome awaits you. We are located in the fascinating Heritage town of Kilrush in County Clare, a gateway to the West Coast.
Katie O'Connors combines a tasteful blend of ancient and modern: some parts of the Hostel itself actually date back to the 18th century! The little things that only this kind of heritage can provide, like an open, peat-burning fire in the dining room, help ensure Katie's is the perfect place to put up your feet and relax.
We are situated close to the Square in Kilrush, making us the ideal base from which to tour the beautiful West Coast of Ireland. We offer an ideal place to stop over whilst you travel the Wild Atlantic Way, the world's longest defined coastal route, stretching some 2,500 kms from Kinsale to Inishowen Peninsula. In addition, we are close to so many great attractions and activities (sailing, fishing, cycling, golfing and dolphin watching, to name a few) that you won't know where to start! Don't worry though - we'll give you some pointers.
We'd love to have you visit, and just in case we haven't convinced you yet, here are some of the amenities we offer in the hopes of making your stay as pleasant as possible!
We are open from mid-March through mid-October
