We stayed at Dempseys for 2 nights. The location is in walking distance from Kinsale. Unfortunately the carpets are old, feel damp and sticky and the maytresses well worn and cheap.

It's a basic hostel but had everything you need. They had a towel and hairdryer for me to use for free which was nice. The location is a bit out but it's a lovely walk so it doesn't matter. Only took about ten minutes to get from the hostel to the centre of the town. The guy working the desk was a cheery sorry of type, and at 15 euro a night at the weekend I thought the value was great. As far as hotels go it wasn't fancy or edgy but simple and sufficient for my needs. Will come again

My friend and I did not have a good experience. No one was ever at reception. When we were going to check out at 10am we had to go wake up the staff member to pay. The showers were dirty and the hostel didn't have a very welcoming feel to it. Unfortunately it is the only hostel in Kinsale. Not worth its value.
