Booked a hostel as it was cheaper for a group of us who were visiting dublin. Hosts were so nice! Attentive and happily aided us with requests. Rooms were so so. Bunk beds were creaky and mattresses were basic. Personally I didn't sleep well due to being uncomfortable. The hairdryer supplied broke and so did the additional one we requested.... More

Myself and three friends, including my girlfriend, are right in the middle of our stay here. On the first night, we got upgraded to a double and a twin room because the heating was broken - this was done with no inconvenience to us. Both were exceptionally comfortable, facilities were clean. The only feature that's a disadvantage is that hot... More

This summer & fall I stayed at the Harrington House Hostel on three separate occasions - in early July, mid July, and early October. The first time was with my parents (80 and 85) and my sister, brother-in-law, and their two children (11 & 14). The second time was myself and my two parents. The third time it was just... More

Airport bus stop right out front was nice. The walk to downtown was a bit long - about 20-30 minutes depending how fast you wanted to walk. But there was food/stores/sights to see much closer to the hostel. The rooms were clean and decent sized. We are a family of 5, so ended up in 2 rooms. The rooms were... More

We spent 3 nights in the Harrington House Hostel. Staff was really nice and also the area was quite central. Unfortunately it's really loud. You always hear when a door was slammed and when people were talking in the hall. Also, you just have hot water for a certain period of time, which is really annoying when you get home... More

We spent 2 days in the Harrington House Hostel and we are definitely not coming back.

The only good news were the lady at the reception who was welcoming and helpful and the position... More

I had a nice stay at the Harrington House Hostel. The staff was very nice! The room and bathroom was very clean. The location is great. Very centrally located and it's very easy to get to and from the airport. At times the other guests could be a bit noisy, also because the wood floor creaks. Although, the guest were... More

We enjoyed our trip to Harrington House. The staff was friendly and helpful. They checked us in early. The breakfast was very good. The common areas were clean and comfortable. The price was very good. It was within walking distance of St. Stephens Green, Shopping, Cafes, Trinity College, the National Museums, and other attractions.

A nice, clean and friendly hostel in a convenient position to visit Dublin and easy to reach from the airport with the bus (number 16). I stayed there one night in May in a room on the first floor. It's a hostel, not a five star hotel, but it is clean, friendly and very convenient. The staff were very helpful... More
