A great hostel - great bunks, great showers & toilets, great kitchen facilities. Really nicely refurbished too. Run by lovely people - Seamus & Theresa - who go the extra yard for you and make you feel valued as a customer. Happy to recommend to any traveller.

Excellent place to stay! As hostels go this is definitely 5 star. Really clean, friendly, a traditional feel with mod cons. Owned by really friendly, helpful staff, can't fault the place, will definitely try to come back.

All the facilities in the hostel were incredible, and the beds more comfier than my own back home! Seamus and Teresa are such lovely and accommodating people, and I can't wait to return the next time I'm in Ireland. An added bonus... More
