Was in Ballyhoura for some mountain biking and stayed in the Hostel for one night with friends. I must say that I was taken aback by the standards in Ballyhoura Hostel. Can't fault the place on anything. Really comfy, warm and Seamus and Thersa are fabulous hosts. Next time I'm down for some biking I will be staying here, no... More

We booked out this hostel for a Hen party, Teresa and Seamus couldn't have been more helpful organising our stay and helping us plan the weekend. The hostel is spotlessly clean, very comfortable and a great kitchen. It's located in a beautiful village with friendly people. We can't wait to go back.

Had the pleasure of staying in Ballyhoura Hostel for a weekend. This hostel is amazing. From the warm and friendly greeting by the hosts ( who looked after our hen group so well!!!), our rooms were clean, bright and modern and we wanted for nothing. This hostel is more like a home away from home. Would highly recommend staying here... More

Can't recommend this place highly enough. Beautifully finished, with super-comfy beds, a luxurious lounge complete with log fire and an extremely well kitted out kitchen. Great ambiance about the place - family-friendly, Seamus and Teresa could not have been more helpful, with Sprocket and Axle keeping an eye on the bikes out back! A great base for biking and other...

This is an amazing hostel in a lovely location. Perfect for the local mountain bike trails. In a lovely village with great views. Seamus has done an excellent job at building this. It is a must see. Great price.

I can't recommend this hostel enough. Seamus and Teresa - the proprietors make you feel so at home. They are passionate about the area and their hostel is seriously the best I've stayed in. All the beds are solid ash. The showers are individual power showers and for a bit extra they got up and made us king sized breakfasts... More

An outstanding luxury hostel, more like a hotel, lovely welcome on arrival, excellent food, comfortable surroundings, excellent customer service from Seamus and Teresa, pubs and shops in walking distance, definitely worth a visit.
