Overview

Right in the middle of Dublin’s city centre, Abigails Hostel is a home away from home. We welcome travellers of all ages to stay with us in the best location in town. And that's no exaggeration – we’re seconds away from Trinity College, Temple Bar and O'Connell Street. We’ll give you an Irish welcome with our free breakfast, free Wi-Fi and storage lockers in every room. Feeling sociable? Our kitchen-diner makes the perfect morning-after meeting spot for new mates.

Location

If you're flying into Dublin Airport, take the bus: the stop is on O’Connell Bridge. We’re next to the river with bars and restaurants all around. The most famous drinking den, Temple Bar, is a 3-minute walk away. For a traditional taste of Guinness, jump on the number 21 bus from College Green for the Guinness Storehouse. St Patrick’s Cathedral and Dublin Castle are both less than 20-minutes’ wander away.

Rooms and Dorms

If you’re coming as a pair, a private twin gives you extra peace and quiet. Groups can make themselves at home in our comfy mixed and female-only dorms. They’re all en-suite, with linen included – everything you need to wake up fresh as a daisy. Forgotten your towel? No problem, you can rent one for €1. And feel free to make the most of the tea and coffee-making facilities or grab a snack from the vending machines.

Extras and activities

Wander the cobbled streets with our free guided walking tours – we’ll show you all the best spots to eat, drink and be merry – or pick up a free city map and go it alone. Either way, our handy lifts will save your legs once you're back at the hostel. Our reception is open 24/7, so no worries if you roll in late. Keen to save cash? Cook up the treats you bought at Temple Bar Market in our self-catering kitchen. If you’re travelling as a group, we’ll offer the leader a free place. How’s that for Irish hospitality?

    Very happy with our stay here, all of us were in a 10 bed dorm with ensuite. Fairly small but it didn't need to be any bigger so it was perfect. Modern common room though didn't seem to be very sociable. Rooms were clean and proper duvet bedding was a big bonus. Ensuite big but the shower seemed to only be freezing or boiling hot! Bathrooms downstairs in the communal areas were dirty and breakfast very basic but you're paying for the amazing location so I would definitely stay again!

    This is a pretty hostel overall. The 8 bed female dorm was cleaned daily, the bed and pillow were comfortable. The sheets were clean and soft. Each bed had a charging ports and a lamp. A locker under bed for storage. There is no social atmosphere or any organized events. The kitchen is large, well equipped. A Large dinning room with couches. The free breakfast is pretty great. The location is amazing, right on the river.

    No actual coffee at breakfast, only instant, that's basic guys... in addition, sort out the showers: nearly impossible to turn off completely and piping hot, I had to literally escape for fear of getting scolded.

Abigails Hostel says

I think we've got an unbeatable location in Temple Bar, overlooking the Liffey. This is a converted hotel, so families and older guests feel at home, too. Plus we've got a bright, open-plan communal area-great for socialising, web surfing, watching movies… For fun we have a free walking tour every morning and a pub crawl from the hostel every evening. We've got fresh fruit and eggs at breakfast, too. We're quite close to Trinity College and Dublin Castle, but my favourite place to recommend is the Guinness Brewery. Lynda, General Manager
