Although described as a hostel, what you get at the Sleepy Camel is far in advance of what is on offer at similarly described venues. Our en suite room was spotlessly clean with a comfortable double bed which we didn't have to make up or strip on arrival/departure, and the pleasant decor and furnishings were more akin to a small...

We stayed in the Sleepy Camel before and after doing the Glenbeigh Horseshoe walk (27km and 14 hours of walking). Excellent facilities and although only coffee and toast are available for breakfast we supplemented these with our own food. Would stay here again.

Great value and ideal location. Really welcoming and relaxed place,clean and comfortable, all needs catered for. Its right on the ring of Kerry and beside the Skellig Ring too. Ideally situated for exploring Kerry and 2mins walk to pubs and restaurants. Stunning beach down the road. Highly recommend.

I had a wonderful time at the Sleepy Camel. The host was very pleasant, the atmosphere friendly and open, the rooms, kitchen, living room etc. very clean. The wifi worked well and there were computers for those without laptops. I had my own room, with a view of the beach, and a sink in the room. A simple breakfast (and... More

the rooms are perfectly fine for the price. The best part is the friendly and helpful owner and the fact that you can grab lots of food and free tea whenever you feel like having it. Lots of books and a comfy reading room make for a relaxed evening after long walking days. Will come back!

This place is a tremendous bargain. My wife and I's room had a private bath (my adult kids' did not) and the only difference between this hostel and the other B&Bs we stayed at was the simplicity of the decor and breakfast and the lower cost. The hosts were wonderful.

With two friends, I was walking the Kerry Way, when making a stopover in Glenbeigh. We decided to stay in The Sleepy Camel for two nights and it was the best decision. It was a clean, homey hostel with comfortable beds and a vast kitchen. The owner was greatly friendly and asked about our costitution a bunch of times. The... More

Really enjoyed the three days I spent in The Sleepy Camel. The service was great and owners very accommodating. The hostel is positioned perfectly in the centre of Glenbeigh with plenty of activities to do in the area and lots of lovely cosy pubs. Looking forward to returning again :-)

If you're driving the Ring of Kerry, or if you just need a place to stay in the Glenbeigh area, this is the place to stay. Reasonable rates, great facilities, and an accommodating, kind couple running the place. I stayed here three separate nights and each was great. You can't go wrong with The Sleepy Camel.
