This hostel is the best we have stayed in, this is our 4th year returning here, we love the atmosphere. it is so friendly, our room was spacious with a comfortable bed, the kitchen is very clean and tidy, with two dining areas, there is a spaciousTV lounge, also an outside area with seating. it is in the town centre, very close to all amenities, great location as a base for touring kerry. I Highly recommend this hostel.......

Room Tip: I would recommend that you book in advance for a private room with en suite, you cant beat it...

I stayed here in June for 3 nights while cycling in the wild Kerry countryside and hiking one of the days with some friends. Lovely clean hostel, town centre location. Hosts are very friendly and enjoy a chat. Kenmare is a great town and a good base for discovering Beara or South Kerry.

Room Tip: if 3 singles get family room plenty space and choose en suite.

4 bed dorm big and light with 2 nice beds rather than bunks (get there early!). Plenty of common room and kitchen space, and very close to town.

The Fáilte Hostel in Kenmare has it all. It's in a great location right in town. The rooms are spacious and mostly en-suite, with very comfortable beds. The kitchen/dining areas are really well equipped and there is a big lounge too for a quiet read. Outside there's a BBQ area as well as bike racks. The wardens are really friendly, helpful and accommodating. We stay in many hostels regularly but this is our favourite. And it's by far the cleanest hostel - it's really spotless. The Fáilte is just a great place.
