Attended a wedding here recently and the place is so beautiful - the scenery is amazing and if you plan on doing some hiking, you couldn't pick a better spot. Great location for a wedding because you have the run of the whole place and there are several different rooms for chilling out or dancing, or whatever. Only downside was... More

Perfect location as first stop on the Wicklow Way - staff go the extra mile, the views are fantastic and the fun of hosteling brings back memories of youth, but this time with en-suite bathrooms. Would recommend to others and will be back.

I stayed there one night and it was a nice experience. The hostel is located right next to the Wicklow walk.

Great hostel in a wonderful location. Staff were very friendly and incredibly accommodating. Excellent base to explore the Wicklow Mountains from and the hostel is well designed and filled with amenities to keep you entertained during wet spells. I would definitely go back.

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.

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
