Hostelworld says

If you're interested in historical Dublin, Four Courts Hostel is a good place from which to start; they're near Christchurch Cathedral, the Guinness Storehouse, the Brazen Head (Dublin's oldest pub) and the Jameson Distillery. We like their large movie room with couches in the basement, described by one Hostelworld user as having 'loads of communal space to relax and unwind'. Our visitors have said their staff are 'funny and friendly' and 'wonderful and so helpful'; they host free BBQs, pub crawls and walking tours so you can explore Dublin and meet other travellers as well.

Property Description

We were voted Dublin's best hostel in February 2011 and Lets go guidebook states 'Best hostel in Dublin'. Great!
We provide free Internet terminals and free Wi-Fi, free breakfast, free guided walking tours and free city maps.

Reception is open 24hrs a day, making sure there's excellent security at all times. There's an airport shuttle bus direct from the hostel, from very, very early in the morning - just ask us about it!

Our twin and double rooms have bunk beds. The 16-bed dorm and the 12-bed dorm are interconnected and share the same shower rooms, please be aware of this before you book. For this reason these two rooms are not suitable for large groups. Groups of 6 or more persons, different payment policies apply. Breakfast is included in the price and has a great choice of cereals, etc.

Please note that children under 18 cannot share in dorms, they must be booked into a private room. View House Rules


Historic Dublin is right on your doorstep when you stay at the colourful and upbeat Four Courts Hostel. We're located just down the road from Temple Bar on the banks of the River Liffey. Nip around the corner to share a traditional pint in the oldest pub in the city, or join us on our nightly pub crawl (with discounts on a Wednesday). We'll help you recover the next day with a free continental breakfast before you stretch your legs and get your bearings with our free walking tour around the city.


Our cheerful hostel looks directly out onto our namesake – the Four Courts courthouse. We’re a 10-minute walk from the Guinness Storehouse, where you can learn all about Ireland's favourite tipple. And if whisky's more your style, head across the river for a tour and tasting session at the Jameson Distillery. There's a direct bus from Dublin Airport to Christ Church Cathedral, a five-minute walk from the hostel. Or jump on the red-line tram to reach Busáras, our closest station.

Rooms and Dorms

Go for a private twin or double or bunk up in one of our spacious dorm rooms if you like company while you sleep! Dorms have shared or private bathrooms. Personal reading lights will help you race through the novel you grabbed from our book exchange. And charging stations make sure your phone’s ready to go in the morning. Sheets come free and there are towels to hire.

Extras and activities

Our self-catering kitchen lets you cook up your own meals, or we'll provide a packed lunch or group meal. Doze through your hangover in the comfort of a beanbag in the communal lounge or stream your favourite movie on Netflix. You can also take advantage of the free Wi-Fi by setting up your laptop in the dining area to catch up on emails. When you’re heading back home, feel free to ask our friendly reception team to organise your transfer to the airport.

    It was my first stay in a hostel and I did not expect it to be so incredible! I would just like to make a list of + - Jason = 10/10 - rest of personnel as well but Jason was extra - clean!!! - good vice Actually everything was perfect but I have a certain amount of characters. More experienced hostel people said this was their best stay. Something that was outstanding is de help and friendliness of the personnel. To sum if you every go to Dublin in a hostel: GO HERE :)

    We stayed at this hostel for 3 nights and had a great time. Mohamed was beyond kind and helpful and provided us with all the info we needed about some tours and the city! The room was Nice and clean with a reading light above our headrest a little shelf and power stations above every bed. The common area was great with lots of entertainment, the kitchen huuuge with everything we needed to make our food. I would definitely stay again. We felt at home!!

    Clean hostel with good facilities, located very close to city centre and Temple Bar area - easily in walking distance. Staff were very friendly and there was an overall chilled out vibe; free breakfast every morning meant that this hostel was incredible value for money!

    For the price I paid, the beds could have been way much better. The mattress was so flat that it gave me backpain.

    One of my worst experience ever according to staying night in hostel! I have to say, that only thing which was fine was the staff. But the rest was a disaster at all.... In the bathroom there was flood, I mean the level of the water on the ground was cca 10 centimeters high, and the structure of the rooms is also very bad. Everytime, someone just opened the door, complain, was disturbing another people by speaking, making noise, I slept overall about 3,5 hours instead of 8... No big deal

    It was a bad atmosphere. The people staying there all gave off the impression that they wanted to rob you and sent out bad vibes. Felt more like sleeping in a women's prison than a hostel.
