Thank you so much for your lovely review and we are delighted to see you think we are a 'luxury' accommodation. We are a family-run Hostel and do try to make our guests feel welcome and at home during their stay. We hope you will come back to visit us again - in 2018 perhaps!

Stayed there recently in a group of 11 friends. It's a big house with lots of space and big bedrooms. Plenty of communal space for us to sit around the table for a cup of tea.
The welcome from Aoife and Maureen was fantastic - a genuine and rare warmth. I've stayed in quite a few hostel's throughout Europe and I's say this was the best I've stayed in.
Thank you very much for your lovely comments and we are delighted to see you think we are the best Hostel you have stayed in in Europe! We hope to welcome you back again sometime.

I was taking part in the ring of Beara cycle and checked in early evening with no issues. The hostel is very clean and tidy and in close proximity to restaurants, pubs and shops. The hostel has a facility to secure your bicycle which is great as I was afraid to leave in car overnight. There are a few free car parks within walking distance of the hostel. Great washing facilities in the hotel and plenty of hot water. Very friendly family run hostel. I will definitely stay here in 2018 ring of Beara cycle.
Wow! Thank you so much for your lovely comments and we are very happy we made your stay and enjoyable one. We look forward to welcoming you in 2018!

we were a large family group,with a big span of ages and requests--and all our needs were met--the large well-equipped Warm kitchen was perfect for catering for a crowd--and the central location meant that we could hop out and visit the local restaurants and bars with ease---and the cosy living /TV room was ideal for those who wanted to sit in and chill
Thank you for your lovely comments and we are delighted you and your family had a lovely stay with us.
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 Hostel
Thank you for your comments and we are glad you had a lovely stay with us.
We have push button power showers to conserve energy.
We had the opportunity to stay here for only one night to launch our drive through the ring of Kerry. Great, no nonsense, clean and somewhat romantic older place but modern in conveniences.
We had an ensuite room which was spacious and clean. The room was ready when we got there so we dumped our bags and explored all the cool places to dine and the cool shops in town. Great location with public parking just a couple doors down across from the petrol station.
They've got rules.
Keeps the place tidy and well managed.
We would definitely stay there again.
