I am just back from a stay in Tralee and due to the Listowel Races I was unable to find a hotel for a reasonable price. For that reason myself and my girlfriend booked into the Castle Hostel. We went with a double room which had all of the basics, bed, tv, bedside lockers, bathroom with an electric shower. Everything... More

Stayed in a 4 bed dorm with en-suite bathroom. The dorm room was well kept and very clean although very small. The bathroom was quite cramped too but at least it was en-suite. Good, free breakfast in the morning, which is always welcome. Wifi in the dorms - great. Owners and staff were really very pleasant and helpful. Ideal location... More

The dormitories are well-kept, beds made and toilets clean; the kitchen is well equipped and breakfast is provided; wi-fi facility, transport time-tables and the hostel's proximity to the bus station makes it a convenient place. Tralee is a beautiful place, with much... More

Convenient location- a short walk from the bus station with my luggage and guitar landed me at Castle Hostel, which is situated along the main road in Tralee and a few minutes walk from various shops, pubs and restaurants. I really appreciated that wifi, towels and lockers were provided free of charge, and the hostel itself was reasonably priced. The... More

The owner is really nice and takes care of everything. We stayed with a few friends in a private room. The price was really cheap and included light breakfast and wifi. Would recommend this one for sure :) Would come there for a second time if around!
