Thank you very much for your lovely review and we are glad you and your family enjoyed your stay with us. We hope you will visit us again some time.
This is an excellently run hostel. It is clean with good kitchen and good rest room. even the choice of books available for reading are excellent with a focus on local history. The hostel is right spot on in the middle of everything. There is a choice of rooms from dormer to on suite rooms with the prices varying but good value.
Lovely to read this. Thank you and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We hope you will visit again.
I have visited here with wife any young child for 7 year in a row. The 'other' hostel in town become a launderette about 8 or 9 years ago and I'm sure some of the budget accommodation over the pubs may be OK, but expect noise. The reality is this handsome Georgian building is right in the centre of town and cannot be more conveniently located for the restaurants and bars. Friendly staff. Excellent reading material downstairs in a vintage drawing room, both flyers and books. Lovely old Kitchen with complimentary tea, coffee, cereal and toast. I've never been in the dorms but the ensuite rooms are quiet with no noise; there is no bar on this particular street.This is a busy tourist town that acts as a gateway to 2 peninsulas and is a heritage town in it's own right. Accommodation is limited at peak times as it is not possible to build new large hotels in the town, itself, without ruining the look of Kenmare. So do book as far ahead as possible.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. It's lovely to read reviews like this and know we are doing a good job in making your stay an enjoyable one. We look forward to welcoming you back again!
My daughter and I stayed here for two nights in a private room. It is in a very convenient location to the center of Kenmare and close to free parking. There was free breakfast and the other guests were very considerate.
Thank you so much and we are happy you had a lovely stay with us. We hope you will visit us again.

Comfortable well equipped hostel in a great location - good parking available beside the nearby Garda Station. The proprietors are very helpful and welcoming so the hostel is well named. Spotlessly clean with oodles of hot water in excellent showers. Sturdy wooden framed bunk beds in roomy dorm with a selection of other room types also available. Excellent Wi Fi and the kitchen has a working AGA on which one can cook scrambled eggs beautifully. A mature and very well maintained building that has great character. A short walk to shops, bars and Quinlan's excellent fish restaurant.
I'm very much looking forward to returning soon.

super location, super friendly and super well equipped! We traveled in a group of eleven for a hiking trip and it was perfect. Comfy beds, decent showers, two kitchens and an impressive sitting room. Staff were lovely.
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!
