Hostelworld says

The centrally located Kinlay House Dublin is just a few metres from Dublin Castle and Christchurch Cathedral, offering travellers 'a GREAT bargain', according to one Hostelworld guest. Many of our users cite the downstairs pub as a highlight of their stay here, with one of our visitors saying they 'would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone, especially students, as it is awesome and in close proximity to Temple Bar and other hopping places in Dublin', while another guest said the hostel has 'lots of people to meet but is far enough away [from Temple Bar nightlife] to be quiet at night'.

Property Description

At Kinlay House Dublin, we have prided ourselves for over 25 years on providing the most Irish hospitality, a fantastic location in a beautiful listed building, and helping each of our guests to experience the best that Dublin has to offer. We offer clean, secure and budget accommodation, located in the legendary Temple Bar area, and are situated just minutes from Trinity College, Grafton Street and George’s Street as well as the renowned nightlife havens of Camden Street and Harcourt Street.

You’ll also be pleased to hear that you won’t have to drag your luggage all around Dublin, as it’ll only cost you €12 for a return ticket to get the number 747 bus to us from the airport to our front door!

Every guest can make the most of our free light breakfast including cereals, toast and jams/spreads, big self-catering kitchen, huge chill out room with a pool table, a Netflix enabled TV and plenty of space to relax in groups or in a smaller gathering. Kinlay House backs right onto a traditional Irish pub, where you can often enjoy live music or their large outdoor terrace. We also have tablets for guest use, and of course, free WIFI!

There is a free walking tour which departs from our reception every morning at 10:45! We also provide free city maps, event guides, and if that wasn’t enough, our staff are very knowledgeable, multilingual and can help you find the best events and activities to enjoy whilst you stay with us.

We can offer you different types of accommodation to make the most of travelling solo, in a small gathering or a big group. This includes rooms ranging from 4 to 24 bed dormitories, including one female only dorm, and a selection of private triple, twin/double and single rooms with ensuites or shared facilities.

Please note that anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult and can only stay in one of our private ensuites rooms. View House Rules

    Kinlay house was great! The facilities were clean, the rooms were quiet, and the staff was very and friendly and helpful, ready to answer any questions I had. The location was perfect. Close to the hub of Temple Bar and anywhere else I'd need to go.

    A really great stay! The dorms were well kept, as were the facilities. Bring a lock because lockers were provided which was great, and only a small fee to hire a lock too. The check in was incredibly smooth and helpful. Had a great feel and it’s always great when breakfast is included!

    Overall it’s a really nice hostel. However, the bathrooms were almost always dirty and the laundry was broken the entire time we stayed there. Also the staff was not that helpful or friendly when we tried to find tours and activities, they mostly told us to google things for ourselves.

    It was very loud even though we had a private room. I believe there was a dorm above us...very very loud indeed. Close to everything though which is what you want. The staff were nice and helpful.

    Good location, terrible beds, the showers you need to press the water button every 10 seconds and have no control over the temperature, “breakfast” is bread, yogurt, and cereal, bathroom/shower were super far away from the room, but it’s a cheap place to rest your head. Would not stay more than 1 night.

    We have stayed at Kinlay House in the past and loved it. It is two years since our last stay and something has changed a lot. We would have asked staff if it is under new ownership, but we had already been ignored, sneered at and dismissed a few times too many over three days to want to bother. The building is still really cool. Relatively clean, but not like it was a few years ago, and staff were not shy about letting you know you (as a guest) are a bother. We will give It another try.
