Have just booked here for a friends trip away. Arrived late so went to room after getting food. It turns out that all three beds in out room have dirty bed linen. Not just stains but body and head hair still on sheets. I went down to the reception - no body was there but the door of the laundry... More

A nice hostel in a central location in the busy tourist town. Good value for money. The only downside was that the kitchen area is very small and it's quite noisy. Apart from that the rooms are quite comfortable and the staff are very friendly.

Our final destination on our cycle of the West coast was Killarney. A town that's buzzing with tourists and friendly people. We were greeted at the reception by a friendly lady who told us there would be a delay on our room, no problem, she gave us the key for the bike shed and we went off to lock up... More

I am really glad that I choose this hostel. I didn't book place in advance but this hostel is pretty big so even during summer season I was able to find room to stay! The girl on reception was very friendly and explained my how to rent a bike and where to go in the park. The location of hostel... More

Thank you to the amazing staff: Juliet, who is the best planner EVER! She organised our trip to Skellig Michael and made us feel so welcome; Pete, for the chats and fish and chips recommendations; and Mike, for recommending a great bar for us to spend the evening in. The hostel is so cosy, it feels like a home away... More

The hostel's location is absolutely excellent with the supermarket and cafés/restaurants all within minutes walking distance. Everything else - railway station, National Park and the all important playground was within 10 minutes walking distance. Our rooms with ensuite were very spacious and met our needs as a family of 2 teenagers, 1 child and 1 adult. The kitchen facilities were... More

The thing I love most about Neptune's is the staff!! They are truly amazing. And as such the hostel feeds off of them. It is because of their hard work, friendly attitude, and excellent service that this hostel is so successful. Add to that the great living space, the large dining room, and the excellent location and you have a... More

Nice hostel. Central location to pubs. Rooms were fairly small. No lockers. Ensuite was clean but simple. Location quite hard to find as down an alley. Staff nice and friendly. Includes a very simple breakfast. Hot drinks, toast, cereal, milk.

A perfect example of what the word HOSTEL means. Located in the heart of the town, the staff of this hostel will be glad to help you at any time you will need. The rooms are fabulous and the kitchen is very well organized, a small breakfast (cereals, milk, bread, jam and butter) is included. Ask any kind of tips... More
