The best, most beautiful and most comfortable hostel that I've ever seen around the world. Noble and luxurious as a hotel. I`m in love with the wonderful equipment and exclusive wooden furniture, a bathroom like at home and the warm, family lounge. And the beds and comfortable mattresses finally are a dream. Who is in Ireland should necessarily spend a... More

This is the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Located in a cute little town. The hostel has a warm homely feel. Nice solid wood tables and things. Beautiful. And very accessible for mountain bike riding. The owner Seamus is a cool dude too.

Our stay in Ballyhoura hostel was like no other. I've yet to come across such standards of cleanliness, facilities, staff excellence and downright LUXURY in another hostel in Ireland. From start to finish our stay was an absolute joy. It's a spanking new hostel with state of the art facilities such as bright spacious dorm rooms with amazing comfy beds... More

Where do i begin. Absolutely fantastic accommodation. Gives a whole new meaning to the term hostel. What glamping is to camping is what this five star hostel is to normal hostels. Worst thing about the experience was that couldn't get out of those unbelievable comfy beds. All the comforts of home and then some. People who run it - Seamus... More

A group of 8 of us stayed at this hostel for 2 nights. Can't speak highly enough of the facilities and the welcome received for the owners, Seamus & Teresa. The hostel is new so it is clean and modern. A lot of thought has been put into the design and comfort level of the hostel. Card entry at main... More

This is state of the art, very well run, friendly, safe, spotlessly clean, and beds are more comfortable than most 5 star Hotels.Three of us stayed here one night after Mountain biking in Ballyhoura, we cycled to mountain track from...

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.
