We stayed in Travellers Rest after a long day cycling from Kenmare to Caherdaniel and found it to be warm, friendly and very clean. We paid 21 euro each--same as in all other hostels around the Ring of Kerry--for a twin room with shared bathroom. The beds were perfect, the room clean and cheerful. There is a pub with great food just across the road and Derrynane Beach, one of the most beautiful in Ireland, if not Europe, is a two mile walk down a country lane away. A great place to stay and we will definitely be back. The French lad who was caretaker was very kind and we met some lovely, interesting people. Highly recommended.

Now, I've stayed here many times on cycling and walking adventures and have always loved it. I was booked into stay on a stop over of the kerry way. We were very late coming down off the mountain and the owner rang 3 times and waited up to make sure we were safe and got in Ok. Not once did she give us any criticism for this...only kindness. When we finally got in, the rooms were fresh, modern, well cared for with lovely new bedding (not a guarantee on the Kerry Way). She had a lovely spacious power shower, a nice kitchen and dining space. The place is full of character and charm while being clean and comfortable also. Well worth a stay. You will enjoy!

Room tip: I think they are all nice as far as I know. I've stayed in a few different ones at this stage and I didn't have a complaint with any.

After a long walk we've reached the hostel. It's interior is nicely arranged and very homely. Plenty of light in most rooms, a good kitchen, some benches and a table at the back of the house. Around the corner are a shop and the Blind Piper, a really awesome pub. So I can't think of any reason not to stay at the traveller's rest.

After walking 30km via the inland route between Waterville and Caherdaniel, we were absolutely exhausted and were hoping Travellers Rest would be fine.
It was way better than expected. It is one of the cleanest hostels I have ever come across, the dining room feels homey and cosy, the kitchen is big enough and functional, there is a table at the back in the garden, all the rooms used by everyone (shower, TV room, dining area...) are nice and comfortable.
The private bedroom we had was another good surprise. The bed sheets were clean and had a nice smell (really not always the case in hostels) and though the room was small, it was pleasant to stay and sleep in.
The hostel is conveniently located opposite a pub / shop. I can only recommend this pub,: great small town atmosphere, cheap pints and a grocery store that had more and at cheaper prices than many local grocery stores all over Ireland.
The hostel can transfer luggage along the Kerry Way. We paid 10€ to the next stop, Sneem, very cheap indeed.
All in all a very good experience there, can't recommend it enough.
Only snag that disappointed a couple of Americans staying there, no free breakfast here.
