Ballyhoura Luxury Hostel is a multi award winning 5 star hostel located in the picturesque mountain village of Kilfinane, Co. Limerick. It's off the beaten path yet with several pubs, shop and restaurant just a stroll up the street. This 43 bed luxury hostel is clean, comfortable, practical and homely. We have a fully equipped self-catering kitchen, a large dining room and a lovely cosy sitting room with big comfy couches by an open fire. The immediate area offers many different activities such as hikes/hill walks, mountain biking, horse trekking, clay pigeon/air rifle shooting and archery. The Hostel is ideally located as a base from which to explore Munster and south Leinster. The Cliffs of Moher, Bunratty castle, The Rock of Cashel, Lough Gur, Cork and Limerick cities and many other places of interest are within short driving distances. It's also the perfect half way point to stop off between Kerry and Galway and recharge the batteries.
