Property Description

The Abbey Court, part of 'Dublin's Best Hostels', is famous for its excellent location, brilliant facilities, warm atmosphere, friendly staff and competitive prices. The hostel has been operating successfully since its establishment in 1999, and continues to see thousands of satisfied guests coming and going year after year.

With en-suite dormitories ranging from four to twenty-four beds, the Abbey Court is known for its excellent group catering facilities. Rates include bed linen, as well as free towels for guests staying in single and twin rooms. Despite our central location, guests are still assured of a comfortable and peaceful night's sleep, allowing for a full and busy day ahead.

Check out our list of free stuff for all guests: all-you-can-eat breakfast, luggage storage on arrival, laptop and passport storage, lockers in the dorm rooms (bring your own lock!), Wi-Fi and Internet, maps and city guides, a self-catering kitchen, and best of all, free guided walking tour of the city every morning. We also run an infamous nightly pub crawl.

We've got hot water, power showers and extra showers and toilets on each floor, plus laundry facilities and a smoking area. We have 24 hour reception so there's no lockout or curfew. There's also 24 hour snacks and drinks and our lounge, games room and TV room are open all the time.

Located just off Dublin's famous O'Connell Bridge, we are the most centrally located hostel in the city. Temple Bar, Ireland's famous cultural corner and nightlife spot is a two-minute walk away and can be seen from the front windows. We're just minutes from all the major places of interest and shopping areas including Dublin Castle, Christchurch Cathedral, Trinity College, the Guinness Storehouse, Grafton Street and Stephens Green. Also within walking distance are the tram stop, the DART station and many bus routes that will take you to more scenic areas outside of Dublin including Howth, Dun Laoghaire, Bray and Dalkey, plus the main sporting and concert arenas.

Our fun and friendly staff are on hand 24 hours to give advice and recommendations on the best restaurants, pubs, shopping areas and tourist attractions, and also to point you in the right direction of all the hidden gems you wouldn't discover otherwise.

We at the Abbey Court are 100% committed to ensuring your stay is as comfortable and fun as possible, and will do everything we can to make this happen. Stay with us and let us help you enjoy everything this colorful and vibrant city has to offer. View House Rules


Here at Abbey Court, we're a friendly bunch. We've got lovely staff, free-all-you-can-eat breakfasts and we're centrally located with culture on our doorstep. It's easy to check in and tick the must-see sites off your list with our daily free guided walking tour. Travelling solo? Tag onto the nightly pub crawl for socialising (and a shot or two). For downtime, head to the games room and TV room – open 24 hours.


We're super easy to find: the airport bus drops you seconds from our door at O’Connell Street. Pint o'clock? Just head across the road to the pubs of Temple Bar, or hop on a bus to the Guinness Storehouse – 20 minutes away – and pull your own pint on the tour. Indulge your inner photographer with an arty picture of our colourful building, and a shot of the iconic Ha' Penny Bridge, just a three-minute stroll away. Dublin done? The main train station is over the river to take you to bays like Howth and Bray.

Rooms and Dorms

Free bedding and power showers in the en-suites are just a couple of perks you’ll find in our mixed and female-only dorms. Keep your belongings secure in the under-bed lockers, which are big enough for a standard backpack (just remember to bring a padlock). Travelling as a twosome? Check into a double or twin room and get your own bathroom – we'll provide the towels so you can pack light!

Extras and activities

Our 24-hour reception means there’s no curfew – so you can stay at Copper Face Jacks club till the lights come on. Handy extras include an ATM at our front door, free Wi-Fi (so you can Facetime from your bunk) and free tour maps. On a budget? Chill in our games room with a game of darts or foosball. Our kitchen has loads of cooking stations so make a bowl of pasta and save those euros for the pub crawl.

    Best hostel I have ever stayed in!! They had bulk showers and toilets and the ability to use more than one floor if needed. Breakfast was amazing hot and cold! Really cool common areas (even a hammock room!!). Brilliant vibe and lots to do! Highly recommend the bar crawl!! Massive turn out!! Great way to meet new people. Massive lockers for under your beds as well and if you forgot something like an adapter they sold them in this cool travel vending machine!!

    Great location, right in the heart of Dublin but still not noisy at night. Decent breakfast, the fact that it was free made it great. Atmosphere was okay, but it seemed like most people were there in groups. That being said, the hostel recommends a pub crawl, which is excellent, and is a really easy way to meet new people!

    Huge hostel in an amazing location (noisy at night!). Free breakfast was good and staff are helpful. Lounge and communal areas are great. Rooms were a bit tired and ensuite was extremely small. Bathrooms generally were in need of some tlc (otherwise facilities were 5 star). Wifi was perfect.

    My 2nd stay here. Staff still friendly/helpful. Stayed in a 12 bed female dorm this time. Room #14. Has its own bathroom. Which was small, but clean. The dorm itself, also clean. Upon entrance there’s plenty of space. Then the room becomes quite narrow. Which leave little space if someone is grabbing their stuff from under the beds lockers. Which you have to pull out. The main light is so bright, it could blind a person if on the top bunk, not fun when trying to sleep. Atmosphere was ok...

    Awesome location! I came from Galway and the bus dropped me off just by the hostel, and the airport bus also picks up from right by the front door. Also right by Temple Bar/ Trinity. Fine facilities, mediocre breakfast but with real coffee. Staff helpful. Huge hostel, good place for a cheap stay.

    Check in at Abbey Court was easy. The employees are friendly. The first room I stayed in had its own bathroom shared with several others and each bed had a designated outlet, reading lamp, and lockable luggage storage under the bed. The next room I stayed in didn’t have an accessible outlet or an attached bathroom so that was a bummer. I don’t remember if there had been a big price difference between the two rooms. Towel rental for the entire stay is 3€. Breakfast was nice.
