Situated in the city centre. Budget accommodation and we are sharing bed in 6-bed mixed dormitory with shared bathroom. Newly renovated, clean and tidy with complimentary light breakfast. Having international roommates are a good way to meet new people.

Stayed here for one night due to being in the area playing a match and decided to stay for a few drinks. This place has pretty much everything you need covered and right in the centre of Ennis. Price is extremely reasonable and all staff were very helpful and friendly. I booked a room in a 6 bed dorm and... More

Excellent stay here. Very clean and comfortable. Rooms are huge. Staff friendly and helpful with 24hr reception. The breakfast was average, with few but popular options, making it nice and easy for everyone to get in and out quick. Kitchen facilities excellent. Huge and offered any cooking utensil you might desire. Loved this place. Located along the river, a view... More

I organised a trip away for 30 workmates. They were so easy to deal with in Rowan tree and made it very easy to change details etc. This is always an issue with big groups but they understood this completely and were very helpful. The hostel was extremely good value, the food amazing with plenty of alcohol in our deal.... More

We spent 2 nights at his hostel before heading back to the US. Great location, very clean and staff was very helpful. Price was right also. We had rented a family room which had its own bathroom. Would highly recommend. We would stay again in a heartbeat.

Lovely little hostel, nice facilities and free cereals/toast. For a treat it's worth popping to the restaurant next door for a great 2 course set menu - and get a voucher from the hostel reception for a free drink with the meal!

Spent two nights in this great hostel. What made this hostel really stand out was the friendly reception staff. They were on hand for restaurant recommendations and advice on exploring the surrounding area. The restaurant at the hostel was also great, as was the communal area which had free wifi and a good sized kitchen attached.

The hostel has a nice location on the river and easy access to the center city. It is pretty much a standard hostel with little to set it apart. We are not regular hostal users, but do enough to have reasonable expectations. The "family room" had one double bed and two bunks, which worked perfectly for us. Towels are provided,... More

We took our young family with 3 kids to this hostel for 4 nights. It is very basic but clean. We had a family room with a private bath. The double bed was extremely squeaky. We were supposed to stay for 5 nights but they messed up our booking. The owner Brian was terrific at offering us a ton of... More
