All you need for a weekend break. Nice staff, great kitchen, nice garden. Breakfast included, good atmosphere in the evenings guaranteed. Easy to find,by the main road but not noisy at all. Glenbeigh is wonderful. Will definitely go back there if in Glenbeigh again.

A former nursing home, Sleepy Camel is on the bigger end of of hostels but still retains a really friendly, homey atmosphere. Price for the twin room was 22 quid each or exactly what we paid in all other hostels, give or take a euro, around the Ring of Kerry. The beds were grand, the sink in the room clean... More

All members of staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and made us feel really welcome. The room was very nice and comfortable with a great ensuite shower and the communal facilities were great - very clean, plenty of cooking equipment etc. The location within the town was spot on. Would highly recommend staying here :-)

The Sleepy Camel is a clean, budget-friendly and accessible hostel on the ring of Kerry. It's ideally located in Glenbeigh village, which makes it very easy to go to the pubs and have have to get a taxi home. It's very near to Rossbeigh beach also which is a gorgeous beach to visit. The hostel beds are comfy and clean.... More

I will definitely stay... More
