First try Foley Towers! Fabulously friendly, finest facilities and fantastic value for independent travellers - we just charge less. Gorgeous gardens. Underfloor heating, lashings of hot water, loads of space. Off-street parking and free luggage storage. Bunks in dorm rooms only. Free WiFi. Wonderful winter specials. No loud parties, no backpacker bus crowds or hard sell. Check in after 9pm by arrangement. You can usually extend your stay before 10am if you're too relaxed to move on.

If you have never stayed here you'll miss out. Everyone needs to stay in a hostel once in their lifetime to experience hostel life. Staff friendly and private rooms OK. Location is good as its just out of the city so avoids all the party...More
