What strikes me most is the lovely location by the river. I had a room on the top floor which is probably the best I have ever seen in a hostel. It was not expensive by any means and the husband and wife team running it are 'Gas' which means great fun as I learnt from my journey. There local... More

This was the most comfortable hostel of our trip to Ireland; but it was more like a big college dorm in comparison to the quaint hostels we chose in other towns. I was traveling with my teenage son and daughter; we had a huge three-bed room and private bath to ourselves, and had plenty of space for the three of... More

It cost 25 euros for a bed in the 10 bed dorm room. This was in March when the hostel was largely empty. Two guys came in the room drunk at about 3am one of them was making vomiting noises. I informed the night staff and was relocated to an empty room; though this was no great consolation after my... More

The hostel staff were very helpful from the outset. The rooms were large and the linen clean. Tea and coffee available free of charge. The hostel is central to everything with a restaurant attached. There is a lift.

I would have loved to stay more than one night here! The town of Ennis was a great little town with lots of friendly people, pubs and shops. The hostel was an easy walk from the train station and central to most things in the town. It had a really friendly atmosphere and the staff were very helpful. They have... More

We received an excellent welcome-brownie upon arrival, as well as an unexpected upgrade to a private room. Balcony included. All in all a great experience and a joy to have stayed there. The love the owners put into this hostel can be seen in every detail, from the showers to the nicely made beds. They simply put in the little... More

The Rowan Tree Hostel has been ranked number one in Ireland for good reason! The relaxing guest house is located right on the ridiculously fast flowing river, and only a 5 minute walk from the center of town. The rates were good, they provided towels for free, and they had a small convenience store with great prices (1 Euro for... More

We arrived to this Hostel (which is much better that some hostels). The room was huge with a very confortable double bed and nice views to the river. The service was brilliant, they were super nice in reception and they explained everything that we could do in town during that night plus some restaurant tips. Besides the brunch in the... More
