Welcome to Killary Harbour Hostel
Self-Catering Accommodation in Rosroe
Rosroe is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the shores of Killary Harbour in the heart of Connemara. Killary Harbour is a natural fjord, extending ten miles into the Connemara countryside.
Killary Harbour Hostel is situated next to the house occupied by the famous philosopher, Wittgenstein, and is now available for letting at very reasonable rates, either nightly or for longer terms.

The house is situated across from Mweelrea Mountain, the highest mountain in Connaught. This can be accessed for mountain-climbing.
