nice hostel. very friendly stuffs. really good one night. real bad the next. when the paddys tour come, they close the room for television at 11pm. then all the paddys tour make noise all night in the corridor outsides my bedroom. it was no so funny.
if you want this hostel, then maybe is best to phone and see if the paddys tour is there that night, then maybe you can sleep!!
dont stay if the paddys group is there. they make much noise too much after the pub and no care abou...

Thanks for your kind words about our hostel, thank you for saying it was very nice and my staff excellent.
I understand your point about the common room closing at 11pm. BUT on certain nights we do close it at 11PM if there is any large groups. This is for YOUR safety and comfort, not to annoy you.
As you know we always have a welcoming blazing turf/log fire burning from 8am to 11pm, it is one of the famous marks of quality of my hostel. Would you like it if 10 or 15 backpackers came in from the pub at 2am, went into an open common room and lit the fire again? No you would not
Also, we have neighbours who we respect, they are a family, and we cannot allow mad parties in our common room late at night. We regularly have supervised parties in the common room, these are legendary in the world of backpacking, but its NOT every night, of course not.
Finally, our common room is the nicest in Ireland, it is an elegant Georgian beauty, I do not want some drunk idiot spilling beer over my antique oak breakfast table or onto my €1000 leather suites (which you enjoyed when you were here)
We have several smaller common rooms which stay open and a lovely walled flower-garden with a roof-cover and outdoor heat lamps, you could have gone there. You also should have alerted our staff and they would have stopped the noise.
Anyway, thanks for your comments, I do hope we welcome you again soon
