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

Thanks Barry for leaving that lovely review and delighted you gave Kellehers a mention too, it really is a great pub! We really enjoyed having you stay and disappointed for you that your chain played up on you. Hope you got the road biking in the next day to make up for it. Thanks again and look forward to seeing...

I would not normally stay in a hostel. This hostel is more like a hotel. I have been twice already this year. The place is spotless clean and modern. It has everything you would need for self catering. Seamus and Theresa are very friendly and inviting. I couldn't recommend this place enough. Excellent for couples, groups of friends and families...

This hostel is unbelievable. Clean. Friendly. Modern. The staff were brilliant and the place is amazingly clean and well kept. I would highly recommend! I came here with friends and took a room. I cannot stress how well kept and modern the rooms and amenities are. Good spot.
