A large group of us stayed at the Valley House for the Easter long weekend. Generally the consensus was that the staff and owner were friendly and hospitable, and the rooms themselves were clean and comfortable.
This is a hostel, not a hotel, so sharing rooms can be subjective - since our group all knew each other there were no problems with noise or issues with late movements about the place.
The Valley has its own bar attached, with nice open fire. Breakfast on offer is cereal and toast, but free to cook up your own fry if you so wished.
The house itself is a nice old country home, so don’t be expecting crisp clean lines, and there’s the odd patch of wall in need of repair, but it kind of adds to the character of the house. The showers could do with a bit of a revamp as the temperature was a little hit and miss at times.
One area that needs a bit of improvement is the driveway up... good old Irish potholes starting to take over.
Overall a pleasant stay at the valley house hostel.
