Accommodation on the island is of four types – one small hotel, one pub with B&B, a range of private homes offering B&B, and a hostel. For those of a hardy disposition there is also a campsite on the island, but people wishing to use this will need to bring all their own equipment.It is advisable to book in advance, and a list of contact phone numbers is shown below. All but the hostel provide breakfast as part of the daily rate, but hostel living involves providing and preparing your own food. Lunch and dinner are available in the hotel, restaurant, and pubs. It is not our policy to recommend any particular accomodation. Each student must make his/her own arrangements.

During and post Covid the non-islander accommodation situation has changed somewhat, and has not yet settled back into its previous pattern.  Because of this, each student must firstly ensure their chosen accommodation is confirmed BEFORE signing up for Craiceann.  If there are any difficulties, please contact Micheál Ó hAlmhain on the island either by phone at +353 099 75067 or email at and he will assist in any way possible.
