Hostelworld says:

We've been working with Oliver St John Gogarty for over a decade and we think they're a great place to stay if you're looking to explore Temple Bar. You can cook dinner in the kitchen or pick from the Irish menu at their restaurant or bar downstairs, where there's live trad music every night. Our users frequently remark on the quality of their free continental breakfast, as well as how family- and group-friendly the hostel is.

Property Information:

Oliver St John Gogarty's Hostel is located in the centre of the artistic, bohemian and cultural quarter of Dublin - Temple Bar.

Our hostel offers affordable, central, clean and fun accommodation in the best location in the city! Not only are we budget-friendly but our hostel is part of the famous Oliver St John Gogarty's Irish Bar - the only hostel in Ireland to have a bar on-site!

If you feel peckish, Gogarty's pub serve traditional Irish meals all washed down with the best Guinness in town! Live music is played daily so hostel guests will be entertained from dawn until dusk!

All our rooms and dorms are ensuite; we also have a fully-equipped kitchen with a dining area so you are free to prepare your own meals each day. We like to make this a home-from-home so we offer free continental breakfast, free tea and coffee all day, great common areas, laundry facilities and all the basics for hire, not to mention a 24-hour reception and no curfew!

Most tourist sites are within walking distance and we offer discounted tickets to some local attractions. Discounted car parking is also available at Fleet Street Car Park!

Temple Bar itself is a network of narrow cobbled 18th-century streets between the River Liffey and Dame Street with Oliver St John Gogarty's right in the centre. Gogarty's consists of three bars and has a restaurant on the top floor, so as soon as you set foot outside the door of the hostel you can immediately feel and hear the electric buzz that is Temple Bar.

Gogarty's Hostel is located in one of the busiest and most popular areas of Dublin City Centre and is ideal for all you party animals who are looking for fun and excitement!!!

Gogarty's Hostel is group-friendly and if we can't fit you into our hostel we have self-catering apartments, too, which are perfect for any group!

    We are located in the heart of Temple Bar, a location that can't be beaten! Just outside the door are pubs, clubs, live music, shops and vibrant city life. This also means that our guests are close to everything and can visit attractions without the transport costs. Trinity College, Henry Street and Grafton Street are just minutes away! We're located in what used to be the old Central Bank, a building with loads of character, thick vaulted walls and a terrace with views of the city. We try to keep your costs low - We offer free continental breakfast with fresh fruit, free tea and coffee all day, and free Wifi, and great common areas so you can explore and spend your money on the fun stuff! Our pub next door serves up delicious traditional Irish food, great pints, and features live music every day.

    Nice hostel in the middle of Temple Bar. Simple, clean and good value for money. There is a bar downstairs and you get a free drink token.. which is great considering Dublin prices!
