Captain Halpin's Hostel
Located smack bang in the centre of Wicklow Town on the river bank 60 seconds from the beach and main street.
We are the perfect stop off for your trip in Ireland, so close to Dublin but still surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the Irish coast and Wicklow Mountains National Park.
Hourly buses to and from Dublin and regular rail connections make Wicklow easily accessible.
There are two common rooms that will seduce you into relaxation.
Our self catering kitchen is well equipped and we have a supermarket behind the hostel
