Two friends and I were in Portmagee for one night before visiting Skellig Michael, and had a very enjoyable stay at Skellig Ring House. The rooms are large and well-appointed, and everything was clean and tidy. Also, because the prices were so reasonable, we were able to afford a double AND a single room, rather than having to bunk up... More

The location is great for Skellig Island trips. You can walk to the harbour, where you find restaurants and bars too. The place itself is old, and you can see it. Free wifi and parking. Towels and breakfast cost extra. They have kitchen facilities etc. Staff onsite certain times.

Very friendly staff. Everything is clean and tidy. Price incl. breaky is absolutely OK. They even have brown soda bread and not toast only. Variety of juices and even yoghurt with the cornflakes. I'm here to get rid of a bad cold and it's a perfect place as silent, not much up and not many things you can do. The... More

The hostel was very easy to locate, I was greeted by the new manager, Alex, filled out the form, & shown to my room, very clean & comfortable, w/private... More

The Hostel is a 5 min. footwalk to the sea and restaurants. The room was clean and big enough. It's a good place to stay for the night and also a good option if you have planned a trip to the Skellings. We had an one bathroom and there would also be a kitchen. Unfortunately there's no breakfast available.

I stayed here last weekend with a group of people and could not fault it. The entire place was immaculate and the value for money was incredible. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and there was no outside noises from other travelers keeping us awake. The facilities were great with at least 3 of each appliance to accommodate as many...

I'm used to staying in 4 or 5 star hotels when I plan weekends away so I was a little apprehensive staying in a hostel. I really shouldn't have been. I was arriving outside of the advertised check-in times but after a quick call, a very friendly young girl met me at the hostel with keys and to show me... More

Spotlessly clean. Perfectly comfortable. Super staff. Great kitchen, other guests doing a fine job of cleaning up after themselves. Seeing couples and families, and a range of ages and nationalities. Well situated for a short walk into a delightful town, and for boats to Skellig Michael. Highly recommend on any budget. (Bring your own towels and toiletries!)
