I stayed at the Hostel for one night while walking the Kerry Way.
This is a fair sized hostel. It has a well equipped kitchen with tea, coffee and milk provided.
I had a room with ensuite. It was a large room with a double bed and bunk bed. Plenty of space though sparsely furnished. A slight downside with the bathroom showers is that the showers are push button and the temperature is set, you cant adjust it.
Linen and a doona/duvee are provided. Towels arent provided but you can hire them. There is free WiFi which worked well.
The hostel is ideally located on the corner of Shelbourne Street and Henry Street the latter being the main source of pubs and cafe options. It is about 300m off the Kerry Way. The best way to find it coming off the trail is to walk directly along the trail to the centre of Kenmare (at the village green) then walk up Henry Street on your right. The hostel is on your left on Shelbourne Street just where the two streets meet.
The price was very reasonable compared to other hostel options on the route.
Taking account of location and price I think this is a Very Good for a HostelMore
