Lovely little hostel run by a nice couple. Other than being on top of a big hill to walk from the bus centre, everything was great!


Really kind and helpful owner, who was extremely accommodating about us being late to check in and check out. Comfortable room in a beautifully quiet area. Nice kitchen facility for a delicious breakfast - and we hadn't realised there was breakfast, so a lovely surprise! Thank you very much for a great stay!


a lady called Leah let us in. she was an absolte delight but the people who run the place were absent and dificult to contact when we first arrived. the place was fine and the breakfast was good value for the price. What you pay is what you get


Very nice staff


The common room/dining room was nice for people to gather. Bathroom facilities were adequate and the showers were a decent size. The kitchen was small and more than 1 person cooking at once was kind of impossible. Our host was very accessible and helpful.


very clean hostel with a really nice kitchen.


Fairman is the best small hostel we visited during our trip. Everything is clean. Maybe the dorms are a little bit too small but it catches up in every other aspect. The best hostel breakfast ever (by a long shot), and the landlady is really nice. Thank you!


If you want a stay away from the city and its routine, you choose the right place. Peaceful hostel, very clean, lovely landlord. Great value. Probably my best night in Ireland.


Very nice and clean hostel that actually feels more like a bnb. bit off the beaten path, but staff are super nice and the rooms and facilities are all new and clean. recommended.


I was here for just one night but didn't spend much time in the hostel itself. Our host was very friendly. It's about a 15 minute walk from the city centre. I found the choice of artwork in the common room a little strange. The house is clean and has everything you would need. A simple breakfast (cereal/ toast/ tea/ coffee) is included in the price.
