There are some cosy interiors with old furniture and a cosy
atmosphere, at least out of season, and I think the hostel deserves a more positive description. The dormitories and its facilities could be renovated and thereby get a cleaner look, though. The ambiance is slightly flower-power-irish-buddhism-like, with strong colours and a distinct flavour of oriental spice in the kitchen area, but it all underlines a feeling of warm welcome, like you will experience in the bustling town of Kilkenny itself. It is possible to rent bikes at the camp-site at least, about 1,5 - 2 kms walk from the hostel. Generally, the landscape around Kilkenny is not so spectacular, though, but there are some historic sights in the vicinity to the south.
