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.

We visited Finnegan's as a family of four, and had a meal in the cosy atmospheric restaurant. The reception was warm and welcoming, with efficient and attentive service. The early bird menu offered a varied selection and represented good value for money. Food was delicious, full of flavour and portion sizes were generous (we had 1/2 roast duckling, steak and...

I can only say great things about Finnegans hostel, the Owner is only the most welcoming hostess ever with wonderful staff comfortable beds and the best coffee the town has to offer. It's has a prime central Location situated beside the rose garden and plenty of other local amenities at hand whatever your interests may be.

the hostel was pretty nice for the money you pay for it. Standard rooms lovely breakfast in the morning and a lovely little restaurant downstairs that does a great steak! Unfortunately during my stay I had to leave at short notice by myself and was very worried on how to get home from kerry on my own. The guy named... More
