Captain Halpin's Hostel is simply the best hostel I've stayed in in Ireland. The location is superb, facilities are above normal hostel quality for an extremely reasonable price, and the owner goes out of his way to answer all your inquiries and create a lovely atmosphere. Couple that with the beautiful landscape around Wicklow Town and I really see no reason not to recommend staying in Captain Halpin's.


Owner was great!


The owner was very nice!


Everything was quite good except the temperature. Inside the hostel I was really cold.


This hostel would have been great had it been a bit more clean. Great atmosphere and location!
