    Really lovely old Irish house filled, reminded me of my childhood visiting older houses. The garden is perfect for relaxing and it is close to an amazing walk in the woods along the coast. Host was friendly and welcoming

    The hostel had a very warm and cosy feel. The host made sure to put a fire on each night for us and the place was very clean. We very much enjoyed our stay. The location is a bit out of the way so you would need a car to get to towns (or at the very least a bike) but it added to the charm.

    Gorgeous location- really magical. Lovely house and nice kind people. I guess COVID kept things a bit subdued and impersonal. Would definitely like to go there again.

    Really enjoyed my stay here while walking bits of the Kerry Way. A lovely hideaway place, with really helpful owner. Great rooms and garden for hanging out in.

    Great stay at greenwood hostel. Was great being able to use the kitchen facilities and fire and lounge area. I would say this hostel is usually buzzing with atmosphere but due to covid there wasn’t many people staying there. Rooms are nicely furnished and there’s parking outside within a close driving distance to kenmare. Bed was uncomfortable- maybe bring your own pillows - and towels were very rough but I didn’t expect them to even be provided. Overall a good budget stay with a cosy feel.

    Very Good

    Having read previous reviews I was looking forward to a peaceful nights stay but unfortunately that was not what I got. The house is nice, the communal spaces are lovely. clean although surprised to not see any sanitiser anywhere. Room a good size, bed was maybe a little too hard for my taste. But the family staying in the room next door had very little respect for others staying. Noisy, no concept of personal space. Felt they should be told of general rules of sharing spaces with others
