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.

Very clean, modern, spacious and comfortable hostel which is more like a hotel. Its is situated in a good location for a country break, the town has lots of character and is safe as well as quirky. The hostel is an ideal base for the region.
