The hostel was in a great location, and the staff was very kind! The 8 person dorm was a little tight and quite cold during the day. The upstairs bathrooms are also much nicer than the ground floor. The wifi was spotty at night, but still worked pretty well.

The hostel is reasonably close to town with many attractions within an easy walk. The workers were very friendly and helpful.

The majority of the guests staying there were university students going to the local university that did not have housing arranged yet. The bathrooms were not clean, there were clumps of hair on the walls of the shower. CLUMPS. the floors in the bathroom were unclean, and there was a distinct odor in the hostel. This hostel was one of 5 hostels I stayed at in Ireland on this trip, and this was the only one that did not feel like a place I was excited to stay at.

The atmosphere was really great at this hostel! We got to meet new people and enjoyed hanging out in the common spaces. It was a slight walk out of town but was also close to a grocery store which was nice. The kitchen was also small but totally usable and practical. The room was very nice and clean. We would definitely stay here again!

This was a nice hostel to spend a night or two at. The hostel had good kitchen facilities, sufficient bathrooms, and a nice common gathering area. The hostel was quiet and the beds were comfortable.

Cute little hostel in an amazingly pretty town. Good internet and communal sitting rooms. Room door had a lock or but didn't have a locker or main door lock, but has a pretty safe vibe so wasn't a worry. Supermarket next door.

The hostel was grand for the amount we paid for. It was a ten minute walk into the village centre but it was fine. The hostel felt like it was still in the 1960s but it was still clean and very secure! The bathroom in particular were nice and modern.

If you have never been to Kinsale before - this is a beautiful harbourside town. Expensive and full of upmarket tourists who have pushed up the prices of all accommodation options. Dempsey's hostel is on the edge of the town. It is a 15min to walk to the marina . Our room for 4 was old and a little grotty and directly behind the front desk. Bathrooms downstairs needed work. Decent kitchen and communal space. All facilities also used by the people camping behind hostel building as well.

The was nice and quaint, it was a bit of a hike up the road to get to, but without our packs it wasn't much of a problem, staff was pretty nice, the wifi had a bit to be desired, was really weak and difficult to get it upstairs, there was also no place to lock up your things, however they offered to lock up any valuables free of charge if you needed, overall Kinsale is a beautify place, and this hostel is a nice place to stay

Good price for what you get, located slightly out of the busy downtown, but within walking distance.
