    The staff were very helpful and could give you useful information on places to visit, walks and tours The kitchen was excellent and you can make your own food It is about a 1 hr to 45 min walk or a 15 min bus ride (2.80 euros) from the centre If you have a car very good location for all places esp gap of Dunloe

    You need a car because of the location. Would have preferred private facilities, but not available at the hostel. Very clean kitchen facilities. Friendly, helpful staff. Nothing was a bother Great music for our age group!

    Beautiful (although a bit faded) country house - great dining area with good kitchen facilities (although closing hours meant early starts for hiking was hard). Very knowledgable front desk. Comfortable private room didnt have a bathroom but it wasnt a problem using the facilities over the corridor- never had to wait. We chose the out-of-town location for the quiet and easy parking. Arranged a pickup for the Gap of Dunloe hike and boat tour - well worth it.

    This was a great place to stay! It is outside of town, but we really loved where it is located. The owner was very friendly and offered great tips about where to eat, drive, and hike around the area. The hostel has a great kitchen for guest use. Only cons were that WiFi is only available on the ground floor and the showers were either way too hot or way too cold. Would definitely recommend staying here if you are okay being a little ways out of town (& have a car)!

    This is a beautiful hostel located in what looks like a old castle! You’d want a car if staying here though, as it’s a 5 min drive from the main town are! It was clean, comfy, and a nice stay!

    The main house is lovely. The rooms out back could use a good scrub. Dirty and lots of spiders. People running the place were great.

    I enjoyed my stay at the Killarney International Youth Hostel, however there was a few issues that bothered me. The number one issue being that I was locked out of my dorm room due to my keycard malfunctioning after 10pm but was unable to contact a staff member, even after calling the hostel and ringing the bell that said “For nighttime emergencies”. Also, first floor only has one shower and one toilet which can easily be a long wait, let alone no where to hang your clothes from getting wet.
