To be completely honest, I only stayed here because of the price. I was only in Tralee for one Saturday night from Wexford, so I wanted to go as cheap as possible. With this hostel, trust me, cheap is what you get. Cheap pricing, cheap room, no wifi in the room, no working heater AND no hot water!! I was... More

Arrived on 3rd May to a warm welcome from Eileen - she honestly treats her guests as friends : ) we were taken to a lovely clean double bedroom at the front of the house. After a long trip from Offenbach which included planes, trains and automobiles was just what we needed. Had a lovely cup of tea in front... More

We just stayed for the one night in a twin room. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the hostel is very nice and is much bigger than it looks from the outside. No complaints about the room and the (complimentary) waffle we had in the morning for breakfast was delicious. Would recommend to anyone visiting or passing through Tralee.

What a lovely place. I turned up unannounced at 3pm looking for a private room and was immediately made to feel welcome. Room was basic but very clean with a nice bathroom and very quiet even though it was facing the road. I had trouble connecting to the Wifi and the lady owner asked one of the "tech-savvy" staff to...

This is a great place to visit. The staff are friendly, the coffee shop is fabulous and Eileen is very helpful. Finnegans represents great value both in food and accommodation and I will not pass it in future. Looking forward to my return visit.

Firstly what a snobby owner. She clocked my designer bags, and treated me differently to my friends. She continued to compliment me while basically reading my friends their rights including what her security will and won't call the police on. Then we got a room without a lock or key. Bed sheets have seen much better days - little bumps... More

I am of the firm believer that the secret to reviewing a hostel or business in a fair and balance way is to spend sometime there and get to know the history, the inner workings of the establishment, the staff, the owner but to vent out your anger because of some issue you didn't or couldn't resolve can be the...
