I have previously stayed in this hostel and found it excellent. However, a few 'maintenance' issues urgently need sorted; UPPER FLOOR; 1) No light bulbs in TWO of the communal shower cubicles. 2) Door of the 3rd shower cublicle did not lock. 3) No window blind in dorm 8 (which opened out directly onto the rear car park). 4) Window...

I stayed in the hostel for one night. The man who runs this place was really nice and I enjoyed my time there even though it was one night. Everything was really clean. It is probably the best place to stay if you do the Wicklow track. Next time I'll come back and stay longer.. Cheers Tobi

On the white, so called, clean sheets supplied by the hostel i noticed a blood stain at one end. The walls in the room were... More

Beautiful place - perfect after a long day of hiking and exploring stunning Wicklow. The lady running the place during our stay was lovely and so helpful despite being so busy. The room was spacious and comfortable. The dining room was great; very inviting with fresh flowers in little jars everywhere and don't forget the views! The self-catering kitchen is... More

Views are amazing . We walked the Wicklow Way to get there and continued on the following day... More

Everything you could need. As for 5 star, not so sure. we had the 'honeymoon' room which was lovely but next time think we'd go... More

We spent one night here, the first as we hiked the Wicklow Way. We stayed in a "private" room with a bath, had full access to the well stocked kitchen and dining area. There seemed to be plenty of common areas for meeting other travelers and enjoying a rest after a long day's hike. Our room was basic and more... More

Great location along the Wicklow Way. Recently refurbished, the rooms are clean and bright with lovely hot showers and comfortable beds & bedding. Staff were really helpful and welcoming and theres lots of local information, maps, books on hand. Vending machines for drinks and chocolate were a sight for sore eyes! You can pre-order delicious breakfast ranging from continental to... More
