This hostel is definitely the best in whole Ireland! I loved it there :). It is in the middle of wicklow mountains and it is a little bit hard to find, but worth the view and the atmosphere. No electricity, no running water, just the nature around. There is nice little river just behind the hostel, where you can wash up! The lady and her dog, who was at the hostel were perfect. Fakt super, asi to není pro každého, ale pokud si chcete v Irsku odpočinout a strávit pár chvil v přírodě - ideální!
This is what the description says... a basic hostel (not overly clean but clean enough), without running water, in an absolutely beautiful location. It is a really good base for going walking. I am so glad we stayed here, the sound of the stream beside the hostel and the remote location gives it so much character and atmosphere. It is a stay I will always remember. The wardens here were very helpful, and the cooking facilities were good.
This is a special place full of magic and history. If you like peace and quiet away from the modern world then this is for you. The staff were very friendly and informative about the history of this unique place. We really enjoyed our stay here and will be back in the future. As there is no running water be aware the toilet is a basic portaloo.
