Had a lovely stay overnight with a group of friends here and would highly recommend it. Staff were so friendly and accommodating. There were quite a few of us and everyone said their rooms were clean and bright and that we'd all love to go back. We had a lovely evening relaxing in the sunshine looking at some amazing views.

We were a group staying for one night as part of a team building event. The setting was amazing in the middle of the Wicklow mountains. The dorm rooms were clean and spacious with en-suite bathrooms & toilets. The staff were very welcoming and made sure all our questions were answered. The communal kitchen and dining area were fully equipped... More

We a party of five mums and sons recently stayed in this fine Hostel. A few of us had stayed here in the past and I was delighted that the hostel is still a wonderful place to visit in a very scenic part of Wicklow. The hostel itself and the ensuite rooms are very clean and comfortable and after a... More

Stayed here for one night in the luxury double at Knockree which had beautiful views over the mountains and of the sunset. Perfect for after a day of long walking and a couple of noisy nights in Dublin. The staff were friendly, there are really nice common areas and kitchens equipped with all you could need and little helpful extras... More

There was 5 in our group so we got a full room to ourselves which was nice. Kitchen was a little small but well stocked with utensils... More

It's a typical Youth Hostel like I remember them from my teenage years. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast (scrambled eggs, toast, cereal, juice, coffee, tea) was good. The room could definitely do better though. It was cold, the sheets/blankets were stained. The floor was also stained. There were quite a lot of spiders in the... More
