We were just blown away. To stay at this hostel is just another kind of traveling. Either if you're traveling alone or with a gang of friends, you definitely gonna have a blast! Not only can you do adventurous things like climbing, mountain biking,hiking or kajaking at a very close range ( only 5 min away!) but also feel comfy... More

Stayed here with a small group of friends back in July. We were looking for somewhere to stay close to the Ballyhoura Bike Trails and the Hostel couldn't have been in a better location. It's only 5 minutes from the Trails and the town itself is a hidden gem. The place was spotless and the bunk beds were very comfortable... More

The mountain bike experience and other guests made the trip absolutely great. The hostel is in a small town Kilkinnane where the townspeople greet each other on a first name/ nickname basis. The kitchen was very organized and well-maintained with everything one would need. There is a Centra in the town for food. We watched the hurling Limerick vs. Kilkenny... More

Had a fantastic time at this great hostel. Stayed here to go mountainbiking with a gang of friends and had an absolute blast. Teresa and Seamus were about as hospitable as you could hope for and were great fun to hang out with. The rooms were in perfect condition and the food was great. Can't think of much more that...

This hostel has to be seen to be believed - defo the best I have ever stayed in and describing it as a 'hostel' does not do it justice. Sauna, Lounge (with Sky Sports and a fireplace!), comfy beds, great showers, great kitchen, super hosts... I could go on. Set up perfectly for biking with secure lock up, bike washing... More

Had a wonderful stay here in July 2014. The location is idyllic and there is so much to do on the doorstep. The hostel accommodation itself can only be described as luxurious, comfortable and impeccably clean and we were made feel completely at home during our stay. I look forward to my next stay here, as two days were simply... More

Spent a weekend in July at Ballyhoura hostel with a group of friends. Being from Limerick city, I could not believe this hidden gem was in my own county. The best hosts you could ask for. Friendly, helpful and constantly went out of their way to ensure we had the best of times. Cool, stylish wooden furniture, cleanest hostel ever... More

Stayed here for a weekend mountain biking at Ballyhoura. Very spacious, clean and tidy accommodation with secure bicycle storage and off street parking. Centrally located so just a very short walk to the supermarket and pubs. This is an excellent facility if you are taking part in outdoor activities in the area. Lloyd

I absolutely loved my stay in this hostel. The hosts Seamus and Teresa are the kindest of people and they treated us like royalty for the weekend. The hostel itself is beautifully decorated with everything you could ever need. The sauna was particularly appreciated after a day of cycling in the beautiful Ballyhoura hills, as was the open fire in... More
