I have just returned from a short trip to Mount Brandon Hostel and the hospitality I received was outstanding. Mary and Michael who run the hostel cannot do enough for you : Michael collected us from Tralee and Mary welcomed us with tea and cake and invaluable advice about the local area and the special events which were happening.

As hostels go, this is one of the very best in a small village right next to a charming thatched pub that does food and serves delicious craft ale from Kerry. Sited on the shore of a tidal creek opening into Brandon Bay and offering fine sea and mountain views, it’s quiet, reasonably priced, well furnished, warm and clean. The... More

Family (7 of us) weekend stay with Mary & Micheál - just wonderful. Wonderful location, hospitality, facilities. Cooking facilities excellent, hot showers (which is a bit of a novelty in a hostel), clean and friendly. And as I said, the location - sitting out the back and looking at the Atlantic, having a glass of wine and bite to eat.... More

A wonderful hostel at the beach. The hostel manager is taking care of his fellows in a very charming and helping way. His "meditation and energy"-sessions are a must, if someone is interested in. Nice rooms, ideal for a group of friends, families, student classes or any group of people. Perfect neighborhood with two Irish pubs. Good meals and great... More

I think this is the best hostel I've stayed in in Ireland and there are some great ones here. The beds were the most comfortable I've ever slept in in a hostel (and some homes), the views from the hostel were stunning with the sea and mountains, the breakfast was tasty and filling, Mary and Carsten were incredibly helpful and...

We wanted to get away from it all after Christmas and we couldn't have chosen better - as soon as we arrived the smell of turf fires and the call of the curlews as we got out of the car boded well. The hosts were welcoming, genuinely warm and helpful. The hostel itself is very well equipped and in a... More

We stayed at the Mount Brandon Hostel on September 17. This is the first time I have stayed in a hostel in about 28 years. We were six travelers hiking the Dingle Way and we booked two doubles and a twin. Although each room could have slept five or six, we had private rooms. The price per person was 22... More

A terrific hostel run by lovely people ,can't thank Mary enough for all her help and assistance with our weekend, she dropped us at the start of our walk up Mt Brandon then told us to ring her if we needed a lift back to the hostel, which we did ,this saved us a very long slog back down the...

I have red many reviews on this hostel who were really positive. I confirm that the building is really nice and on sea. The rooms are very comfortable and furnitures in good conditions. The staff was really nice when I arrived because during the day I changed few times my arrival time. At the end they waited until a quarter... More
