We booked a double room and were given a tiny twin room. 1st bed comfortable, the 2nd single bed was awful. It had a plastic mattress which made you sweat and made a noise when you moved. Walls were very thin so could hear snoring from all directions. No hook in the room (the door hook looked old and was broken off) Two showers, in one room but only one worked. Only one toilet on the floor was open.
No where to dry wet clothes. No where to hang my towel in the room, everything had to go on the floor.
Bread and toast making facilities in the kitchen along with tea and coffee available. Large sitting area but closed at 9.30 (even on Saturday night!)
Clean but facilities were very varied from room to room.
Disappointing for what we paid.

My daughters and I walked the Kerry Way this summer. We stayed at Sleepy Camel on our Glenbeigh waypoint. I was exhausted and a little daunted because I was trying to keep up with two 22 year olds ( found out it was impossible). But staying at Sleepy Camel turned my mood and energy level. We all loved it—the primary reason being the proprietor host, Chris. What an amazing hotelier—the best hotels in the world could learn from his example. He went out of his way to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. Truly, when I started out the next morning, I was refreshed because of his attitude, as were my girls. A few hours in to my walk I even got a phone call asking about my welfare’s! Wow. At our next stop we told a hiker going in the opposite direction to stay there and continued to extol its charms as we met others. It’s been 8 months since we stayed at the Sleepy Camel and life got a bit hectic, but for those entire 8 months I’ve been determined to write this review because of how much we appreciated the kindliness of Sleepy Camel and it’s caretaker. Thank you again for your graciousness.

Room tip: Just inquire. Very accommodating.

Gr8 place to stay.everything you could need. Very comfortable clean room and friendly caretaker and all at a very affordable rate. I would definitely stay again if I was in the area. Surrounding area great. Plenty of things to do and places to go.

I've stayed here twice and it as good a hostel as you will find anywhere. For 23 euro a night it is quiet, clean, comfortable and run by a friendly gent. I had access to everything I needed and got a good night's sleep. Great value. Good location inside the town of Glenbeigh - handy for tired, hungry (or thirsty) hillwalkers.
