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

Myself and my two brothers stayed in this hostel last week while trying out the ballyhoura mountain bike trails. What a place!! The beds were so cozy and everthing is spotless. Seamus is a skilled carpenter as all the beds, tables and benches are made to such a high standard. There is a sauna there but we didnt try it... More

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. Luxury stuff. Beds super comfy, great location, perfect getaway location, huge kitchen and dining facilities, hot showers and unbelievably comfy lounge room after... More

Ballyhoura Hostel was amazing. I had originally booked one night and that's all it took for me to fall in love with the place and book the remaining of my trip there, just about two weeks total. Don't let the word Hostel scare you or skew your impression of the place. It's called a "luxury hostel" for a reason and... More

geez, where to start. So after some bad planning on our part, we booked this hostel for a night. After falling in love with the beds and service we booked for another 2 weeks. The scenery around the ballyhoura mountains it's nothing short of awe inspiring, especially on a clear day. The beds are super comfy, showers are great and... More

I stayed here with a few friends in July this year in a 4-bed room...this isn't your typical hostel! All the hostel facilities you need at hostel prices but with luxurious touches you wouldn't get in other hostels. :-) the hostel was spotless with comfy hotel quality beds and a cosy sitting room. Hosts Seamus and Teresa are very welcoming... More

The Ballyhoura Hostel is by far the best hostel I have stayed at anywhere in the world. The facilities are amazing. The location is amazing. It is every thing you could want in a hostel. The thing that will make your stay particularly special is the hospitality provided by the entire village, particularly from the warm, friendly, kind and helpful... More
