From the outside this hostel looks old and ran down and in the hallways and common room this theme continues. We stayed as a group of 5 friends in a 6 bed dorm. I have to say the room was nice, freshly painted and very clean. The bathrooms and shower facilities were also kept immaculately clean. The kitchen is good... More

If you're looking for a party hostel, Kilkenny Tourist Hostel is not for you! (At least when I stayed there it wasn't.) This hostel was homely, warm, comfortable and impeccably clean. The kitchen is spotless and the common room has a nice fireplace that's going every night. The only downside is being located 20mins from the train station, but it's... More

Four of our family stayed two nights in the four bed room. Another stayed in an 8 bed women's room. A lovely peaceful old Georgian terraced building. Minimally changed which means the character is preserved. A find. All the hotels were booked as it was opening weekend of the excellent Kilkenny Arts Festival, so we found ourselves here by chance,... More

We only stayed here for one night and as far as hostels go it was nice. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spotless and it was in a good location. One downside was that there were no lockers in the rooms so we were a little concerned about leaving our possessions there during the day as we were sharing a dorm... More

It is located in the wonderful authentic well preserved building. It is best suitable for those who love historical georgian architecture and interior. Our room for four persons was light and spacious. Kitchen is very beautiful and has all necessary for cooking or tea.

Really great hostel! so clean, cleanest I've been in so far. Kitchen was useful but for the price a corn flake breakfast would have been nice! Really nice staff, Australian lady was really helpful with us getting our bus. Thanks!
