This is my second time here. It was very good last time, but now it's better. Clean, well maintained, beautiful views, very friendly and helpful staff - the owners are really incredible, and a great location. It ranks as one of my favourite hostels of all times. You can stay here for 3 or 4 days like head-quarter and visit...

Stayed here after a wedding at the Cromleach Lodge. Don't be put off by the hostel name as the views from the room that we stayed in was fantastic, no exaggeration - see photo.

Placed a few meters from Lough Arrow's shore, Arrowrock hostel is a lovely place near Boyle town. Craig and Mary, owners of the hostel, are a kind and funny couple; they've welcomed me when i've arrived there. I've been in a 5 mixed room with bath, very comfortable. There is a nice livingroom with fireplace and a spacious kitchen that...

Perfect place to relax and visit the contryside. Maybe it's old but it is in perfect conditions. The owners, Mary and Craig, are marvellous. They are very kind and they are always helping guests. They have two bikes to rent, as a bike lover I really recomend the two routes riding arround the lakes Arrow and Key.

Just returned from the arow rock Hostel and had a fantastic June bank holiday weekend. Mary and Craig made us very welcome and arranged for boat hire and ferried us around to pick up our car after a wedding. Great location, facilities and most of all a great welcome, fantastic, thanks.

This hostel is a perfect place to get away from it all and yet still has plenty to offer. The hostel looks out on Lough Arrow. The lake makes for a beautiful walk or you can explore the lake by renting a rowboat. A short drive away there is the old Carrowkeel Tombs. It is a nice easy hike up...

When we found them first, it was by chance as Sligo town hostels were booked out. We meant to stay for one night - after half a day spent there, we cancelled a booking in another place and stayed with Mary and Craig for three days. Last week was our third visit and not much changed - only the banter...
