    We don't give maximum scores lightly, but Greenwood Hostel deserves it. A real home from home, with lots of individual touches and generous space and facilities. Wonderfully warm, with a wood stove, and large grounds. Generous welcome and attention from our host. Ideally situated for the Ring of Kerry, and the many delights just off it.

    Really enjoyed my time there with my family. We were the only ones staying there at the time so it was as if we had a whole cabin in the woods to ourselves. Spent a cozy night in front of the fire and headed off in the morning. Great stop off for those doing the Ring of Kerry. About 10 minutes from Kenmare. Would definitely recommend!

    This place is really lovely and the host is a really nice too. This is more of a guesthouse than a hostel. Location wise, it's great definitely a place you need a car for as its 10km from Kenmare town, but its lovely and secluded. There is parking too. A nice kitchen area to have breakfast in. The room was nice too. I definitely recommend this place and would stay there again if I was visiting Kenmare.

    The hostel is about a 10 min drive from kenmare and a lovely quiet house, with a garden and parking. It's a good spot to stay if you are doing the Ring of Kerry. We were the only ones staying in the hostel and with the location we felt very secure. It was good to have a kitchen to use, though the fridge was turned off (I imagine when its busier it would be on). We also couldn't get onto the wifi and had no reception, but as it was a short stay we weren't bothered by that.
