Staff was very friendly and the facilities were impeccable. Had a lot of trouble locating it though and was not close at all to the city of Wexford that the website indicated it was.


Great little hostel, near the beach, owners couldn't have been more helpful. It was a little quiet as we went in low season


Really nice place!! Staff are super friendly and helpful. Nice and clean with good kitchen and nice room to chill out in. Short walk to the beach and to a grocery store! Not near to a whole lot else though. But overall great place, would definitely recommend.


STAY HERE! A real Irish beach town, it's a few minutes from gorey and a taxi was 10€- there's a private beach a minute away, sandy and serene. Marie is so helpful, even gave us a ride to the train station the next day! We had a (free!) pizza in the freezer, personable housemates, cozy tv room, spacious clean bedding and bathrooms, and only a few minutes walk to the village of riverchapel where the grocery store and pub are. Beaches ended up being a sort of quiet holiday from our holiday, lovely.


A family-owned hostel which is only a short walk to the beach. The owners are really nice and helpful - they make you feel very welcomed and give you tips too. There is not much around so I would use this place as a short reprieve between busy cities. It does have a calming and relaxing air to it. FYI, you can only get WiFi on a laptop, not your phone.


I can't say enough great things about Beaches Hostel, this was my favorite hostel to date! The hostel is privately owned and feels like what it is, a home. The accommodations are clean and of excellent quality. It's off the beaten path as well, which is wonderful in the midst of visiting big cities with heaps of tourists. Our stay at Beaches Hostel was the perfect seaside rest that we needed after a long and strenuous bike ride.
