AVOID Booking here! The main focus seems to be placed on the Other TWO Businesses which operate both at Basement and on the Ground Floor levels of the premises. Finnegan's was completely unaware of my Booking when I first arrived to a whole pile of confusion and I almost tripped over several bags of coal and other clutter just abandoned... More

This hostel is in a great location, in the center of Tralee. Shops and pubs are just down the street. The staff were really friendly, there were no issues during our stay. The tea rooms on the ground floor were nice and colourful, relaxing place for a cup of coffee. On the second night we tried the restaurant in the... More

Finnegans Hostel is ideally located in the centre of Tralee and provides all the needs you may have for a short break away.Rooms were clean,staff were curtious and professional and the food available from Mary Annes Tearooms and Finnegans Wine Cellar Restaurant could not be faulted,an excellent experience all round.

This hotel/hostel is really a strange mix. In the basement is an excellent and pricey restaurant. On the first floor is a charming tea room, with quirky deco and home-baked cakes and excellent coffee and tea. Then one goes up a floor, and the bedrooms are sub-standard. Charmingly awful would describe them best. There is a huge need for investment.... More

It cost us €10 per person in the 10 bed dorm, but there were no other guests so it was amazing. Everything was nice and clean and we had a very comfortable stay! Breakfast was included in that cheap price - toast and coffee in the cute tea-rooms downstairs. Other food was available at a cost. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at Finnegan's during our stay in Tralee and it was exactly what we were looking for! It is located right in the center of the town on a charming street located next to a beautiful park. Our room was so comfortable and I felt as though I was staying at a close... More

You can tell Eileen takes pride in her establishment, as evident by both the hospitality and cleanliness this hostel exudes. Pristine, yet welcoming rooms fill the top two floors of this Old Victorian gem located in the heart of Tralee. In the morning, tea and scones are served in the charming tea room located right below the hostel. The tea... More

We travelled as a small group and stayed in this hostel for a few days during the summer. We had dorms booked for a week and ran away after three nights.

Had great time in Tralee where we based ourselves for lads weekend away. Very friendly service and great location if going to races in Listowel and looking for cheap budget accommodation. Thanks for looking after us so well.
