Property Description

Oliver St John Gogarty's Hostel is located in the centre of the artistic, bohemian and cultural quarter of Dublin - Temple Bar.

Our hostel offers affordable, central, clean and fun accommodation in the best location in the city! Not only are we budget-friendly but our hostel is part of the famous Oliver St John Gogarty's Irish Bar - the only hostel in Ireland to have a bar on-site!

If you feel peckish, Gogarty's pub serve traditional Irish meals all washed down with the best Guinness in town! Live music is played daily so hostel guests will be entertained from dawn until dusk!

All our rooms and dorms are ensuite; we also have a fully-equipped kitchen with a dining area so you are free to prepare your own meals each day. We like to make this a home-from-home so we offer free continental breakfast, free tea and coffee all day, great common areas, laundry facilities and all the basics for hire, not to mention a 24-hour reception and no curfew!

Most tourist sites are within walking distance and we offer discounted tickets to some local attractions. Discounted car parking is also available at Fleet Street Car Park!

Temple Bar itself is a network of narrow cobbled 18th-century streets between the River Liffey and Dame Street with Oliver St John Gogarty's right in the centre. Gogarty's consists of three bars and has a restaurant on the top floor, so as soon as you set foot outside the door of the hostel you can immediately feel and hear the electric buzz that is Temple Bar.

Gogarty's Hostel is located in one of the busiest and most popular areas of Dublin City Centre and is ideal for all you party animals who are looking for fun and excitement!!!

    I stayed there over some of the Christmas/ New Year holiday period, the place was lively, as one might expect and seek out. Overall I found everything fine and submerged in the spirit of the season. JA.

Personalmente no pase ningún mal rato, pero una chica en mi pieza (pieza compartida) me advirtió de que a ella le había ñn robado las zapatillas asique hay que dejar todo bien asegurado e las”jaulas” de seguridad. Muy bu bar ubicación, en la mitad del barrio temple bar y todas las atracciones turisticas

    This was a really great hostel. The locations was perfect and the complimentary soup was a brilliant touch. Breakfasts had a good selection of cerewls, salad, toast, boiled eggs and drinks. The pub below was a wonderful convince, too! The only things that could be improved on is the clearness of the kitchen/bathroom (small things, the over all look was clean) and there is a lack of enough plugs in the rooms.

    Very Good

    Staff was great, very warm and very kind. What I didn’t like was that for some reason there was a guy sleeping basically all day because he “worked graveyard” and that’s where he was staying between his shifts. I understand why he had to sleep but it was slightly inconsiderate because we had to basically make little to no noise in our room during the day as he slept. Also the kitchen could have used a deep cleaning and the room was extremely out dated, only one outlet for phone charging???

    Hostel wasn’t too bad until checkout, a couple of hours after leaving the hostel I received an email staying payment was being taken for a damaged mattress in our room. The room was a 6 person dorm and no damage had been made. When contacting the staff at the hostel they wasn’t great and it felt very much like the hostel was trying it on....payment was taken without permission and I had to go through my bank to dispute. Hostel is ok, location is great...staff a bit rubbish.

    Yikes! This hostel is pretty rough. Of course, we were not expecting luxury accommodation, but the level of uncleanliness here is pretty appalling. We’ve been to a fair few hostels but this is the first that felt overcrowded compared to the available facilities. Two power outlets and one shower for a ten-person dorm! Really?

    Not every bed had it's own locker draw. When I asked for one the staff didnt do anything. Staff wont hold your baggage. Only 1 shower, no extras to use if it is occupied have to wait ages.
