    Clean, tidy, with great facilities and very welcoming in a beautiful setting. The high ceilings and old world grandeur in the Library and TV room were great to experience. There is a large window in the TV/Common room which in today's world of steel and pre-stressed concrete passes unnoticed but at the time of construction would be comparable to today's mansions having a helicopter pad or indoor swimming pool.

    My friend and I loved this hostel! The location was great if you have a car, only 5 minutes out of Killarney, with free parking. Continental breakfast for €4 was a great bargain, and the beds comfortable. Would highly recommend this hostel, thank you for a great stay!

    Hostel is a large old manor on the outskirts of Killarney. Not a good location if you are on foot. Luckily we had a car! This hostel is probably more suitable to large groups & families. Its not a party hostel. It was very quiet when l was there but this may have been due to the time of year. The staff were very helpful & pleasant. They had decked the whole hostel out for halloween which was really great. There is a pub in walking distance to the hostel that had reasonably priced tasty meals.

    We had a nice relaxing stay here at this quiet old manor house out of town. Staff were wonderful, and even lit a fire for me in the living room. Big kitchen with everything you could need. Showers were push button for 10 or so seconds, and not the best pressure, but nice and hot. Atmosphere was relaxed, no party vibe, but that suited us for a rest. Lovely area to explore, with a lovely pub down the road.

    Amazing location ! The building is beautiful and the parking very large. The rooms are old: uncomfortable beds, the doors do not close very well, there is no space to store your luggage. Despite that, the rooms are charming and actually pretty big. There are not many bathrooms, you might have to go to an other floor to take a shower or brush your teeth. The kitchen is large and useful but lots of things are damaged. Staff is nice but rarely available, you might have to run after them.

    the private double room we booked was not the room we got,and the pictures of the bathroom do not correspond to the reality. bring your own breakfast or pay 4 euros.
