Myself and my two brothers stayed in this hostel last week while trying out the ballyhoura mountain bike trails. What a place!! The beds were so cozy and everthing is spotless.

Was down at the Hostel (not a hostel) for two nights doing a mountain bike course. Seamus and Therese were the best hosts, I've been to hostels all over Europe and this is just on another level. Luxury stuff. Beds super comfy, great location, perfect getaway location, huge kitchen and dining facilities, hot showers and unbelievably comfy lounge room after... More

Ballyhoura Hostel was amazing. I had originally booked one night and that's all it took for me to fall in love with the place and book the remaining of my trip there, just about two weeks total. Don't let the word Hostel scare you or skew your impression of the place. It's called a "luxury hostel" for a reason and... More

geez, where to start. So after some bad planning on our part, we booked this hostel for a night. After falling in love with the beds and service we booked for another 2 weeks. The scenery around the ballyhoura mountains it's nothing short of awe inspiring, especially on a clear day. The beds are super comfy, showers are great and... More

Nick, it was very funny that you ended up staying for so long after only booking in for one night. I must say it was great to have you and I really enjoyed meeting you. I hope you enjoy the rest of your travels. All the best, Séamus More

I stayed here with a few friends in July this year in a 4-bed room...this isn't your typical hostel! All the hostel facilities you need at hostel prices but with luxurious touches you wouldn't get in other hostels. :-) the hostel was spotless with comfy hotel quality beds and a cosy sitting room. Hosts Seamus and Teresa are very welcoming... More

The Ballyhoura Hostel is by far the best hostel I have stayed at anywhere in the world. The facilities are amazing. The location is amazing. It is every thing you could want in a hostel. The thing that will make your stay particularly special is the hospitality provided by the entire village, particularly from the warm, friendly, kind and helpful... More

My friend and I recently stayed here, we were greeted at the door by Seamus we were instantly comfortable. Would recommend to anyone passing through, there are also many things to see and do nearby. Car parking is secure as well so was great knowing our hire was safe. Thanks again Ballyhoura hostel, we had a fab time.

What a excellent place to stay. Never been/seen such an amazing Hostel. 5 Star Hotels aren't this good. There's mountain biking, clay pigeon shooting, horse riding, beautiful walks and loads more. Can't wait to get back. Fair play to Seamus and the gang. See you all next time; )
