Very clean and well organized. There's nothing to do in Portmagee except get drunk in the main pub and hope that the day after you can do a boat trip to the close Unesco site of Skellig Island. A bit expensive considering the location, this hostel is located 5 minutes walking from the harbour and from the village's pub. Congratulations... More

I was two times in this hostel. And I met the real Irish mood, the craic, on the sea, in front of valencia island. A small town but a beautiful place. Fishermen are in the pub in the evening and you can meet good people, local people!

For family room during Easter we paid 50 euro what is a bargain. Room was big enough for 4 adults and one 3 years old. Other places were at least for double price or more. Hostel itself is quite new and clean. Kitchen well facilitated. Highly recommended

Based on the good reviews on the internet, I'd had expected a nicer place to stay. The hostel recently added "luxury basic accommodation" to its name. PLEASE REMOVE LUXURY. I travelled with my three children on a small budget and had booked a family room for two nights. Let's just call it what it was: a small basically "IKEA" furnished... More

We stayed in the twin room with a shared bathroom. Overall the room was spacious, clean with a comfortable bed. The hostel was also equipped with a basic kitchen (with a microwave, stoves, toaster etc) and free parking. Was also pleased with the service received wherein they were kind enough to answer all my queries promptly prior to my arrival.... More

Spent two nights at Portmagee Hostel in a en-suite room. Very clean, decent sized room with comfortable bed. The place is within a short walk from the pier, so if you planned a boat trip to the Skelligs or scuba-diving, then it's an affordable choice. The staff is friendly and helpful. A kitchen and dinning area are also available.

We stayed here for a night at the end of July as we were in Portmagee for a family event. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room and we had a lovely view of the village too. The en-suite shower room was grand, the cleanliness wasn't to be faulted. The cold water tap in our room had... More
