Really impressed with my short stay at Knockree - Helen the manager was very helpful and friendly, the accommodation is modern, clean and well-maintained and the setting is superb.

This Hostel is situated in the middle of nowhere in an incredible beautiful location. The people there where really friendly and the room we stayed in (Room 17) was incredible!!! We got upgraded for free (Thanks again!!!) since we were almost the only people staying at that time, but the room is definitely worth paying a bit more. The only thing that was less than perfect was the shower, but it worked and had running warm water, so that's not really an issue :)


Iv been here a few times and its always a pleasure. Great place to get away from city and just enjoy the mountains

Such a nice calm and relaxing place to stay. Only problem is getting there because you must be aware you cannot simply just get a cab from the bus stop, must pre organise one. The facilities were super clean and fantastic kitchen. Real home feel perfect for a trip to the countryside for walks etc. Loved our stay rooms were super spacious. Highly recommend but be aware it's not easy to get to.


Beautiful location, kind of hard to find as there are no road signs. We had the "honeymoon room," highly recommended if you are traveling with your love. They have good facilities if you are planning to stay a while. Good walking trails nearby, closest town is a 10 min drive. Cute pets on the premises.
