Property Information:

Our hostel is a small 32 bed hostel and we are in that business now for 21 years. Located on the main road into town, the bus will stop at door on request. We are 5 min walk from the centre of town and the harbour. The town is internationally rewarded as one of the prettiest in the world and the harbour walks and pub entertainment is second to none. Famous for its nautical battles , piracy and cosmopolitan nature, you may hear 10 languages strolling around Kinsale.
At present we are unable to accept any credit cards or debit cards when guests are paying at check in.

Please note bookings for any kind of groups inc sports, stag, hen or 21st birthday parties will not be accepted there is quiet time in the hostel from 11:30am to 8am so no loud groups will be tolerated!

    Rooms could do with a major overhaul. Mildew on windows, handles missing from window panels, walls need fresh paint, curtains are threadbare and new curtains badly needed and finally take the 2 spare beds and mattresses lying against the wall out of room C. The handle of one of the doors came off several times. Whilst it was very cheap, the place needs new beds, carpets and furniture. It seems no money has been spent on it in 20 odd years. Only use if nothing else available in Kinsale.
