We stayed here as part of our 4 day Southern Ireland tour. We had the Bed and Breakfast option for this whole trip and this room/stay had the best accommodations. Would highly recommend taking a stroll into the village and meeting the locals! What a great time!

Stayed here as part of the PW tour on Mon night & was impressed. There was a thatched B&B next door for the ones who paid extra but I had no problem whatsoever. Shared a ground floor 4 bunk-bed dorm with 3 others & it was spacious and warm. We had our own bathroom too. That night we went next...

Not too fancy, but everything you would expect from a hostel. Kitchen facilities, shared room, wifi. Bathrooms were ok for a hostel, do not expect too much though - it is just a hostel. There even was breakfast, which I would not have expected at such a low price. We stayed here in March and it was really quite cold...

For a hostel in a tiny farm village in the middle of nowhere it's pretty nice! We stayed there on a Paddywagon Tour, but since our group were the only people staying here at the time, the staff graciously allowed us to split up into smaller groups, instead of trying to cram us all in two rooms: four people could...

It's a hostel; that's the best way I can describe it. I stayed in an 8 bed mixed dorm with my Paddy Wagon group (only 5 of us were in the room and it was very large) which had one ensuite bathroom. Not storage lockers in the room. While I would say it averages fairly safe, we were there when...

Its location is set in the countryside, underneath the rolling hills of green fields, surrounded with sheep and nature. This makes it much different from your average hostel.Its quiteness is also appealing and this gave...
