    What a superb and unexpected find! Traveling alone and needed a place to lay my head for the night en route to a family event in Co Limerick from Dublin. As it turns out, I wish I could have stayed all week. Ballyhoura Hostel is a haven in a beautiful village. I had a sauna, a glass of wine by the fire, and an early night in a big comfy bed. Ready for the day ahead but reluctant to leave. The owners Séamus and Teresa are the icing on top of this cake. ‘Hostel’ has a brand new meaning!

    Run by a lovely and personable couple. They were so kind and helped my brother &I learn a lot about ireland. Completely worth going out of the way to stay there it was a reprieve. Beautiful furniture plenty of things to do (it was easy w/ a car) the facilities are amazing the beds comfy and kitchen well stocked. Only downside no lockers in the room but there are cameras and keycards that expire at certain times. Felt very safe and at home. By far best hostel I’ve ever stayed at! Hope to go back!

    Absolutely perfect. The facility is clean, well taken care of and homey. The owners are two of the nicest people I’ve had the pleasure to meet while travelling. The city while small has a lot of character and beauty surrounding it. If I ever come back to Ireland in the future this will absolutely be a stop I will make again. Was a perfect stay and was easily one of my favourite places to stay in Ireland on this trip.

    LOVED. We had the unusual experience of being the only ones there which was amazing. Netflix and a fire got set up for us. Everything is spotless and the beds were extremely comfy. And how can you pass up a chance to be with two dogs? Loved it here and definitely recommend.

    Absolutely amazing hostel, probably the best I've been in. Was the only one that night but the staff were so welcoming! The beds were comfier then mine at home and the chill out area was like being in my own living room. Felt so at home. Would definitely recommend and would love to return to do some activities in the local area!

    Perfect place. Super friendly hosts and the whole interieur of the hostel is stunning. Can strongly advice to stay there for a while and use it as a base to explore the area or even southern Ireland in general.

    The nicest hostel you will ever stay at. If it's an option for you to get to this hostel, stay there. I wanted to move in. The beds are solid wood, the beds are comfortable and the pillows and duvets fluffy. The kitchen has all you need to cook for a group or just yourself. The staff were incredibly warm and helpful for us. You truly feel at home in this homey hostel and the bathrooms were nicer than those at some homes. I'd go back to Ireland just to stay at this hostel.
