Perfect location. Parts of the overall building are very old which means you hear noise from water pipes, etc. Also, as with most hostels, once other guests are up and going about their business then the amount of noise means you'll be awoken. I was genuinely impressed by the level of cleanliness, the entire place was immaculate. Overall, I was very happy with the accommodation and would definitely return.

Kenmare was one of my favorite Hostel during my Ireland trip! The owner was so nice and it was clean. Coffee, noodles,cookies, rice were offered- so nice. I would really recommend this ostel if you visit Kenmare. The owner gives you tips where to go if you want some music, helps you out if you have any problem or wishes. Really positive.

nice and cosy. Even though we were late checking in the staff welcomed us with a smile and that was highly appreciated. The location is great and the common areas are lovely and well equipped. The only drawback is that there wasn't (or at least we couldn't find) a wall socket in our room so we had to charge our phones in the corridor

Thank you and we are glad you enjoyed your stay...all our bedrooms have plug sockets...sorry you couldn't find yours. You should have asked us and we would have showed you no problem...

The location of this hostel is perfect. Right in town but with free lot parking if you're driving. Staying here felt a little like staying at camp--in all the right ways. The guests seemed to be a little older and quieter (30+) which was perfect for us. We had the 3rd floor triple room and it was quite large, with vaulted ceilings and a sink in the room. Shower and toilet facilities were also clean.

If traffic noise bothers you, be sure to ask for a room on the quiet side. The hostel is located on the corner of a busy intersection!

Yes...we are located in the centre of town

Located on the main trip in the (very small) town of Kenmare. No parking available on-site but there's a small car park down the next street. When you arrive you can't ring the bell at the front door (if you do they won't answer) - need to call the host's mobile for her to let you in. There are other strange little oddities about this place but it is comfortable, if quiet. Great kitchen/dining areas.

Everything in this hostel is tidy and well organized. The lady in charge is nice and it looks like she knows how to run a place like this. There's always peace and order in the house. It's the perfect place for a family or for people looking for a good rest.

Good place to stay, close to pubs, restaurants (its a small town anyways). Good kitchen and signs for all you need to know are provided. Clean and organised. Nice bathrooms to share, rooms are OK enough for a short stay, they could use some extra plugs for phone/camera chargingetc. Reply of confirmation email was very informal, no hello or thank you, really nothing special. Check in has to be before 19:00hrs and because we had a car accident the lady in charge was kind and waited for us THANK U!
