Property Description

Dublin International Youth Hostel is located on the North Side of the Liffey river, just a 5 minute stroll from O’Connell Street and 10 minutes from the GPO and the Spire in the centre of the city.

The Dublin International Youth Hostel was originally a Girls’ Convent School for the local area and has been adapted to now accommodate the many world travellers of today. It still retains many features of its previous use, with the statues of Saint Joseph and Jesus to the bright refurbished Church that serves up the free light breakfast each morning instead of a sermon.

Some of the hostel bedrooms were once home to the Nuns of the Sisters of Charity order, as well as being classrooms for some of the girls of the area, one of whom was the sister of James Joyce.

As the only hostel in Dublin connected to An Oige – Irish Youth Hostel Association/Hostelling International and YHA, the hostel lives by the ethos of both providing affordable and safe accommodation for people to experience Ireland and its culture, as well as being committed to sustainability and recycling practices to lessen our impact on our environment.

*Please note that families traveling with children under the age of 16 years old must book private rooms.

    We were there for a nights stopover in Dublin. It suited us perfectly. The staff were very helpful, the bed comfortable and the showers hot.

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent facilities. Our room was between the stairs and bathroom and all noises were heard but overall the noise level was less than expected. Like everywhere else in Ireland, there was no A.C. or fan in room and it can get quite hot. The mattress was extremely hard. The female bathroom and showers were closed for cleaning during peak usage time (i.e. 9am).
