Great atmosphere and beautuful setting. We felt really confortable and enjoyed our stay in Killarney. The staff was very friendly and helpful, they didn't mind answering our silly questions.

. The house itself nedds to be renewed or at least re-painted. The facilities (showers, ...) weren't so clean. Atmosphere wan't what you can expect from such a place. Asking 4 euros for such a "breakfast" is a bt exagerated. We axperimented 5 different places during our week long trip, and this is clearly the one we wil not recommend.

This hostel is a bit outside Killarney- this was no problem for us as we had a car, but if you're not driving then it might make getting around a bit difficult. We had two lovely nights cooking dinner and drinking wine by the open fireplace. Staff were super friendly and helped us organise a tour. Unfortunately there was some annual car-racing event on, which meant we were woken up at 3am by people doing burnouts. Obviously not the hostel's fault, but I hope Killarney stops holding that event.

The staff are really friendly:) All of them:) I remember one named Max, he is so helpful and friendly. Not to mention, he is really hot.

It's nice that they put on breakfast but I really needed to boil some eggs to travel with and they said no :-(

This old mansion was very cool to call home for a few days. The staff is friendly and upgraded my group to a private room at no charge just because they had the extra space. Overall great experience here.

Very friendly greeting and chat with student volunteer from Germany, with her lovely spoken English. Big, spacious, rambling hostel, fires lit, clean kitchen, nice quiet atmosphere and very cheap!

Loved staying at this hostel. There weren't many other guests at the time but that was a nice break. Our group walked the 1.5 hour walk from killarney to the hostel. We enjoyed it but most people should probably take the bus. The staff was really friendly! Also the surrounding area was beautiful!!!
