The Bards Den is one of the oldest Hostelries in Connemara. Formerly a village post office, pub and grocer, today The Bards Den is a Bar, Restaurant and Holiday Hostel. We offer a fully liscenced Bar and Restaurant, serving bar food and a la carte menus, adjacent to our Holiday Hostel. We have 12 ensuite rooms, private and dormitory, offering unbeatable value and comfort for couples, families or small groups visiting this area. Our location is our best asset. Located at the entrance to Connemara National Park and the Renvyle Peninsula, and beside Kylemore Abbey, we are the ideal base for exploring this unique part of Connemara, "where history abounds in scenic splendour". The 12 Bens, The Western Way, The Maamturks, Killary Harbour and Majestic Mweelrea are all accessible on foot or by car. We also offer FREE bicycle hire, to our residents, subject to availability. All our prices also include continental breakfast.
