    Originally came for 3 days - extended my stay for 2 weeks! Dempsey’s has a wonderful atmosphere - great people who keep the hostel warm and friendly. Alex is great and the staff are incredibly helpful and fun! Great location for walking into Kinsale or taking the bus to Cork. Perfect place for getting to know people and feeling welcome. Would 100% recommend.
