It gets our thumbs up for consistently high guest reviews.

Hostelworld says

Our users have said staying at Avalon House is 'like if you were at a friend's house'. This hostel sits just between the nightlife areas of Temple Bar and Wexford Street, ideal for those looking for a pub off the beaten track. Hostelworld guests often say how much they appreciate the busy common room, with ping pong, a pool table, foosball and a PlayStation. We particularly like the Starbucks café at the front of the hostel, where you can meet the locals or your fellow travellers over some of the best coffee in town.

Property Description

At Avalon House, we pride ourselves on Irish hospitality, an unbelievable location, and helping each of our guests to experience the best that Dublin has to offer. We provide clean, secure and budget accommodation and are located between the legendary nightlife areas of Temple Bar, Camden Street and Harcourt Street. We are also just minutes Trinity College and THE closest hostel to St. Stephen’s Green where the Vikings amongst our guests will be picked up for the daily Viking Splash tours.

It’ll only cost you €3.30 and take about 55 minutes to get the number 16 bus to us from the airport to our front door! If you prefer a speedy bus, both the 747 and 700 stop 10 minutes away from us, and cost €12 euro for a return ticket.

Every guest can make the most of our free continental breakfast, a big self-catering kitchen, reading room, chill room, games room (equipped with board games, table tennis and a pool table) as well as our newly opened cinema room where you can sit back on our comfy sofas and watch Netflix on our ridiculously huge 65” screen! We also have tablets for guest use, and of course, free WIFI!

There is a free walking tour which departs from our reception every morning at 10:30! We also provide free city maps, event guides, and if that wasn’t enough, our staff are very knowledgeable, multilingual and can help you find the best events and activities to enjoy whilst you stay with us.

We can offer you different types of accommodation to make the most of travelling solo, in a small gathering or a big group. This includes dorm rooms ranging from 4 to 12 beds to meet fellow travellers or stay with a group and a selection of private triple, twin/double and single rooms with en suites or shared facilities.

Please note that anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult and can only stay in one of our private en suites rooms. View House Rules

    Stayed in double bunk beds with shared bathroom. A bit small but it worked. Bathroom was a bit of a drag but was able to work with it. Staff are helpful and location was great. About 45 min from airport by city bus

    Very well located and super friendly staff. Though I don't know why the heat in the room was super high at night which, in a 10 beds dormitory, was not not very nice. Apart from this tiny detail I had a great stay at Avalon.

    + The room was pretty large and the bed was very comfortable, the bathrooms were very clean. It is really in the center of Dublin which is very convenient. - It is very noisy, the breakfast is enough but not very tasty or appealing, the staff is helpful and polite but there is no real atmosphere.

    Twin ensuite room was severely over priced for what it was. Size of room was not the issue but that it had nothing but 2 beds and 4 hooks behind the door. No shelf of any kind so everything had to go on the floor. Bathroom the same--no place to hang towels or set anything. Shower spilled out onto rest of bathroom floor. Breakfast would have been OK if we had not paid 140 euro for the room.

    It is a nice place. Clean, nice rooms, lot of facilities. But the receptionists are sad, arrogant people. They were really not helpful and are not local which makes it harder for them to suggest you fun things to do.

    Security was a bit onerous, luggage storage overpriced, staff somewhat unfriendly, and the shower required you to push the button every 10 seconds to keep water flowing. Overall it's fine, but considering the amount of other options in Dublin, stay elsewhere.

    The hostel was close to the city center so it was easy to do everything in Dublin by foot. The hostel has a few options as relaxing areas but they're not really cozy.

    Itchy all over. Beware. When you check in you are given a piece of receipt paper “which you must hold on to at all times” this is your security pass, along with a key card to gain access to the facilities. This I found perplexing, however I did not question it. I later discovered my “security pass” had someone else’s name on it. This was never asked for so it was never an issue. Lockers are good, €10 deposit. Breakfast is good. Went for a shower in the morning only to be told at 9am to come back

Avalon House says

We like to create a home away from home atmosphere for our guests. We pride ourselves on customer service and ensuring your Dublin experience is an unforgettable one!
We\'re a Victorian building with character near most of central Dublin, like Grafton Street (3min walk),Temple Bar (5min walk), St Stephen\'s Green (2min walk), Vicar Street (6min walk), St Patrick\'s Cathedral (2min walk) and the Guinness Storehouse (20min walk). I usually recommend that people visit the National Archaeology Museum as well; it\'s free and only a three-minute walk away. We look forward to welcoming you soon . Team, Avalon House
