Hotel Irish House is near the center, but not on top of any late-night noisy spots to keep you awake. It's a good clean basic hotel with AC, TV, and WiFi. The hosts live on site and are very nice. It's close to the touristy center, even the beach with its long line of restaurants catering to the foreign trade.... More

Great location, right in the middle of everything, within walking distance to the whole town. The owner Roberto is a great guy. Not only did he arrange for transportation from the airport, but he picked me up himself. Will stay here again.

I've stayed with a friend of mine last may at a couple of places in san juan del sur. Most where ok since I've been through a bunch of hostels. However we ended up in this place for our last 3 nights. We had nowhere to go that night and the people there were more than welcoming. We had a... More

We stayed at The Irish House for our first 2 nights in San Juan del Sur. We had booked ahead of time because we were arriving on the weekend and we couldn't seem to find anything else online. We liked that the Hostel had really powerful AC (A nice treat for backpackers!). The rooms were also very secure. Our room... More

We had the downstairs front room, plenty of space. The noise of the street settled about 10pm. That beds were comfortable, the owner most helpful even helped arrange a taxi to the boarder for a decent price. We had to leave a day early, even though we had booked for two nights the owner was accommodating. This little place is... More

There is just so much wrong with this horrible white house we are troubled as to were to start. located in the midst of bus, car and vendor routes to and from the beach during all hours of the day and night *seriously all hours, provides the traveler with NO good sleep. The house sits on top of an old... More

We stayed here in the summer, and it was perfect. Great location, great value, and the owners were very warm and gracious to us. We loved our trip and would go back! We also enjoyed the tavern, owned by the same couple-a warm and friendly place all around!

I am just reviewing the bar downstairs, not the rooms but if the rooms are anything like the bar then you are better off sleeping on the beach. I was in Nica with 2 Irishmen who wanted to check it out. It's a total dive which is not a big deal. I did have flees jump on me from the... More

we apologize but the schedule of attention at the bar is starting from 5pm and maybe the staff did not inform them. More
