Property Description

Kilkenny is the Ireland of many visitors' imaginations. Built from dark-grey limestone flecked with fossil seashells, Kilkenny (from the Gaelic 'Cill Chainnigh', meaning the Church of St Canice) is also known as 'the marble city'. Its picturesque 'Medieval Mile' of narrow lanes and historic buildings strung between castle and cathedral along the bank of the River Nore is one of the southeast's biggest tourist draws. It's worth braving the crowds to soak up the atmosphere of one of Ireland's creative crucibles - Kilkenny is a centre for arts and crafts, and home to a host of fine restaurants, cafes, pubs and shops.

    I absolutely loved my stay at this hostel so much so I had to book another night. The owner went above and beyond giving me advice on what to do in the town and was always up for a chat which can be comforting when traveling solo. Beds were big and comfortable and each had their own power points which was amazing. This hostel feels like home. If you’re staying in Kilkenny this should be where you stay.

    This is a great hostel with a great location, spacious rooms, and individual lights and electrical/USB outlets for each bed. I loved how the dorm rooms locked although there were no lockers for your bags. And the owner is friendly and had good sightseeing tips. I would definitely stay here again.

    Really great hostel in a perfect location. Right in the city centre with loads of great pubs near. Fiona the receptionist is also really nice and friendly, always up for a chat and so helpful if you need anything. It's very clean and well kept, good beds and nice rooms, everything you could ask for in a hostel. I was there during the weekdays so it was very quiet, but everyone was nice and friendly.

    Noel was an absolute gem. We accidentally got to the hostel an hour after check-in closed, but Noel came immediately to let us in, give us tips and suggestions. Bunk beds were sturdy and comfy!

    The description on website states they have a storage area for luggage- on arriving we were told they did not. We were told at reception check out was at 12, along with another staying in the room, and it being stated on their website description, however at 11 a staff member came in our room and told everyone check out was at 11 and we had to leave. Over all great facilities and friendly staff, but there is a clear disconnect with what is on website and stated at check in.
