Stayed here during the Rose of Tralee festival and we were so glad we did. Its right in the centre of town so was very handy for restaurants and pubs. Eileen our host was really welcoming and stopped for a chat during our check in and check out,even though she was really busy. We found it to be great value... More

For one night, Finnegans provided everything necessary. It was centrally located, with free full Irish breakfast and an ensuite bedroom. The facilities, while quite old fashioned, were fine in the short term. However the rattle from the bathroom fan as well as a stuffiness which may have come from the storage heater before we arrived, would have become irritating after... More

I have spend (waste) a few days in this hostel, and seriously, think about it before spend your money there, there are a lot of hostels around better than finnegans. Here, ypu have to pay before get any information about your room, many shared rooms doesn't have a key so anyone can enter, most of the days YOU DON'T HAVE... More

As part of a travelling theatre company and resigned to staying in hostels in Ireland rather than the usual Travelodges in England, there was a dread of feeling amongst my cast. But this place completely changed that, decent sized rooms, great location, friendly and brilliant staff. This place has it all, and I also can't recommend the attaching "Mary-Anne's Tea... More

Our first stop after landing at Shannon for our Ireland road trip. As hostels go this is certainly a gem of a find, the hostess Eileen is very attentive and ensures your stay is perfect. The breakfasts are fabulous and keep you going for the rest of the day. I'm certain if you stayed here more than a few days... More

A beautiful, clean and traditional hostel that is situated above a tea room and restaurant. We arrived in the afternoon, which was a quite hectic moment to arrive and check in. However, during our stay we were pleasantly surprised by the very kind personnel, delicious breakfast and ideal location in town. Minor details are the limited wifi connection on the... More

We've stayed in Finnegan's a few nights now after nights out in Tralee, and it has been perfect every time. Nice and clean, friendly staff and exceptional value. 20 euro for a bed and a hearty breakfast. Sure, you couldn't bate it. Will be staying on many more occasions to come.

Terrible booking service!!! Moreover, I have yet to get my deposit back. The lady who rang never suggested alternative accommodation nor did she try... More

Very friendly service! It felt like the owner took care of us very well. She took some laundry to her personal house to dry it. The down side was the tight quarters and lack of locks on bathroom (en suite). Parking was a pain.
