This hostel is miles apart from any other hostel I've stayed at. The owners are so lovely and the quality of everything is unbelievalbe - including the furniture, the incredibly comfy (and spacious) lounge room with a fire lit every night in winter, the extremely comfy beds and linen. The free wifi and excellent self-catering kitchen (better equipped than most... More

It's a hostel you might dream about: everthing is done to the highest standard and quality, the beds are comfy, the kitchen is well-stocked, the hostel is well laid-out, the atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing. My favourite was the... More

A small group of us booked 2 rooms here and were totally amazed by the superb decor, quality, comfort and hospitality on arrival. Seamus and Teresa made us feel so welcome. It's almost too luxurious to call it a hostel. Highly recommend it to anyone and look forward to staying here again.

Stayed here in early May for just one night. Very friendly and accommodating owners. Spacey and brand new modern facilities. Great location for all kind of outdoor activities in the area. Think the beds was the best thing, so comfortable and cosy.

I really recommend Ballyhoura Hostel! It's so much more than just a place to stay. Seamus and Teresa are incredibly warm and fun and funny, and they really do want you to have the best time you can possibly have - and they'll go out of their way to help make that happen, if they can. The mattresses were so... More

Seriously the best hostel I've ever stayed at, not just in Ireland, but in Europe and the US. Seamus and Teresa are such great hostel owners. Really took care of everyone. The hostel is clean, bright, cozy, and warm. The giant room that we stayed in were so comfortable. The beds were great, there was even a little shelf area... More
