Security: anyone having an electronic key could have entered the hostel with friends and staid for the night, it might be a good idea to have someone check the entrances at night.

Don't miss this hostel!! Gary and Jenny are lovely and it's in a great location for exploring the wicklow mountains.


Amazing hostel with spectacular views, long walk from the nearest bus stop, but doable!


A lot of children (scout) noisy it's normal but running in the Hostels and in the steps... early in the morning and nobody to say... please be quiet and walk don't run inside....


we had a great time at the hostel. the only downside was that the alarm kept going off. There was a large group there at the time, so maybe you could explain to large groups how not to trigger the alarm, so the other guests have some rest! Many thanks

Nice relaxing overnight stop on the Wicklow Way.


Not only is the view the best you will get for miles around, but the staff is kind, courteous, and genuinely caring about their customers. Everyone was absolutely lovely and very helpful with instructions on getting around the rural area. The rooms were spacious, and the pillows were comfortable. There were some creepy-crawlies around, but that's to be expected in the countryside, and didn't take away from the quality of my wonderful visit. Thanks knocktree!

Lights not working in TWO shower rooms, and door didn't lock on the THIRD shower room. Very smellie shower in room 15... Maintenance needs sorted asap. Otherwise, great location, great views, very pleasant staff.

Hi Pauline, We thank you for bringing this to our attention and hoped that when you brought the issues to us in the hostel that they were dealt with efficiently. We have now just completed our busy season and are in a position to embark upon a maintenance plan for our hostel, starting with all of our shower rooms. We hope that you will return to us soon and discover that the issues that you had raised with us have been sorted out. Warm regards, Carol
