Additional information

Driftwood Hostel is located 5 km/3 miles from the lively West Cork town of Skibbereen and about 10km /6 miles from the closest point to the sea; which makes it an ideal base to tour West Cork and Kerry.

We are located in a peaceful rural setting, our garden is for everyone to relax in and we welcome guests to enjoy their surroundings.

Guests with dogs are welcome, once their pets are supervised. We have a shed in the garden to accommodate pets for a good nights rest.

You are a 10 min. drive from stunning nature reserve Lough Ine (Europe’s largest saltwater lake) or 20/30 minutes from the coastal villages of Baltimore, Glandore, Schull & Bantry.

If you venture a little further you will find the villages of Goleen & Crookhaven, Mizen Head (Ireland’s most southerly point) and Barleycove Beach, all accessable in 40-45 minutes. The more adventurous can venture into Kerry and visit beautiful Kenmare or a little further Killarney National Park. We will also be glad to help you find local activities you might enjoy such as: Cycling & Walking , Kayaking; Dolphin Watching; Deep Sea Angling or River/Lake Fishing; Arts, Crafts & Music.

There is plenty to do and explore locally and during the Spring and Summer season West Cork offers lots of festivals around the small towns and villages.
