Property Description

Knockree hostel is located in a fabulous rural setting 7.5km from Enniskerry and 12km from Bray town in the county of Wicklow.

It is an ideal location for hillwalkers, lovers of the outdoors and activity-seekers, and makes a great escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Families and business- people alike enjoy the relaxed, easy-going atmosphere and the scenery that makes Knockree unique.

    Amazing location right at the doorstep of the Wicklow mountains. The hostel itself is relatively newly built, modern, clean facilities. Just what one would hope to expect from YHA.

    This has been our second stay at the Knockree hostel and I enjoyed it much more than last time. The staff was very friendly and the hostel is located in a quiet place, with many hiking routes. We did have a rental car, so we had no problem to get to the hostel, but I can imagine it might be a bit far for some.

    Fabulous

    Overall, it was lovely. I do want to mention one disappointing interaction, though. I reserved 2 spaces in a mixed dorm; upon arriving, I was told they had moved me and my partner to separate male and female dorms, noting my booking had said 2 females were coming. I never noted 2 females, just myself on the booking. I showed them my booking receipt and they said, rather unapologetically, nothing could be done. I felt there could have been better customer service around this issue,

    Stunning location but difficult to get to if you don’t have a car, WiFi wasn’t good in rooms but did work in communal areas. Would visit for the view alone.

    Main concern was the size of the kitchen, far too small with just 3 four ring cookers (plus oven) sink squeezed into corner and miminal worktop space. Apart from that I enjoyed my stay. great location, spacious building and clean. Gerry

    The staff was 50/50 the front desk girl was really nice when I checked in, the people who volunteer to work their for free bed were cool but that Gary dude is a complete douchebag. You should avoid at all cost. The people I had to bunk with were all cool, and the room was nice. Beware though in the middle of nowhere if you want to walk to the Enniskerry it may take up to an hour and bus comes every so often.

    Location was beautiful but it’s in the country and not near town. Room was alright, a little cold. Front desk staff was nice but lady who works in kitchen wasn’t that friendly. She wouldn’t let us use the washrooms when we first arrived and then kicked us out of breakfast 20mins early.
