Thanks a million, We hope you have a chance to come back to Ireland's Friendliest Town and the home of traditional Irish music again soon !! Regards from all the team @rowantreehostel


Great hostel, great location. The atmosphere was very quiet (however I was there late February). The only downside (a very minimal one at that) to me, was the severe lack of water pressure in the shower - had to stand directly under the shower head for it to reach me.


More like HOTEL! We booked a private room and it was definitely by far the best hostel we have been to. Bathroom was very clean, as were the beds. Beautiful view and excellent staff-they were more than happy to offer advice and to order us a cab. As a new adventurer, I would definitely stay here again.


Great hostel! Really enjoyed our stay. Nothing negative to say except for the fact that our room was a bit cold because the heater didn't work overnight.


I thought the staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. They even organized our next stay in Galway. Thanks a million for that.

Excuse my language, but unfortunately I had one poor experience because I got bitched at by my roommate. I know that is not Rowan Tree's fault, though. Perhaps more explanatory signs for those of us who rarely use hostels and would like some help on what is expected and such...?

Very nice hostel, the kitchen was incredible, they had a nice living room too. The room it self was big, clean and with a breath taking view of The river.


Fantastic hostel, really enjoyed my stay! Staff could not have been nicer!


Very friendly staff, and convenient location. Rooms were clean and spacious. Will make sure to come again if in the area!

What a great hostel. The staff go out of their way to help.


It was a great surprise to find this is such a nice hostel. High standard rooms, comfy beds, perfect location, nice staff .... Don't miss the chance to stay there. Won't regret !!!


They upgraded us on a Saturday night. This place ensures you have a good stay and great little town. I recommend everything they do.
