Travellers' Choice
Due to Covid 19 restrictions, until further notice, we will operate only as a private family holiday home with max. guests of 20. 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.

Ballyhoura Hostel is fabulous, extremely clean, the bed is so comfy, the sitting room is very relaxing and inviting. Teresa and Séamus went above and beyond for our group and made a special effort with the delicious food. I would highly recommend staying here, you will not be disappointed.

Actually we were on the way to Galway but it was to far. So we just looked up at the network and found that Ballyhoura Luxury Hostel. Teresa and Saémus were amazing! They just welcomed us, told us a nice viewing point and a place to have a dinner and a Guinness. The furnish is absolutely lovely and the beds very cozy! You gave to bring something to eat for your own but there is also a little bit free food in the kitchen. In the evening Shames gave us a lot of information for places to visit the next days. All in all, if I come back to Ireland, I will definitely come back to Teresa and Saémus!

The place is pristine clean and very warm- something I always worry about when going to a new place. I had a great experience with this hostel. The showers, kitchen and the dorms were unbelievably clean, the bed was very comfortable and we were made feel very welcome and at home:)

This is my fifth or sixth visit to this fabulous hostel and it has never yet failed to delight me. The welcome from Teresa and Séamus is warm and genuine, the handcrafted wood furniture is exquisite, the roaring fire is welcoming, the beds are snug and comfy, the showers are hot and powerful and the cooked breakfast is worth it's weight in gold! Thanks guys, until we meet again, Máire
