Helen, the manager, was awesome. She made us feel so welcome. The atmosphere was quaint and friendly and we would definitely return.

This was my 2nd visit to the Bards Den. Since my last visit in 2014 I can see a number of improvements have taken place, including new mattressess, paint etc. As ever, the hostel's location is ideal, but it is the atmosphere, service, and bar food next door that makes it stand out. Vincent and his staff are very hospitable and friendly. The bar food is especially good, wholesome fresh food, reasonably priced. The mussels were particulary good. I have no hesitation in recommending the Bard's Den

Everything was perfect especially the location, the staff and the breakfast. Only problem was drunk people comming back late in the dormitory but well... this is a youth hostel in Ireland.
