“A home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2011

We stayed here one night while we were riding along the Ring of Kerry. Well positioned in the town of Kenmare, with a bicycle parking in the rear courtyard, it's a really nice hostel, good value! Very clean (both our private room and common spaces) and welcoming. You can really see how staff takes care of the hostel. Maybe breakfast could be provided with a small extra charge. Anyway, we highly recommend it!

The hostel is just wunderfull and feels very comftable. We had a four bed-room for the two of us and there was plenty of space. The room was not on-suit but we had a washbasin.
The kitchen is well equiped, very nice, very cosy and always clean like the rest of the house.

You can see and feel that the owners care about there Histel and there guest.

The best hostel I stayed in in my two weeks in Ireland.

Thank You

It is very well located. We stayed in a private room, and it was very spacious, and clean. The dinning area and kitchen was nice and had all the facilities. It would be perfect if it would have towels and wifi conexion.

Good price, nice big kitchen, fun atmosphere for all age groups. Our room was very clean and neat looking out over the square. Very good value for the money.

Room Tip: We had a family room, private but with shared bath.
