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!!!

    Absolutely loved staying here. The staff was great, the people were friendly, and it has a bar right under it with live music and a great crowd. I can't wait to go back and visit.

    Fab place to stay, in the centre of Dublin. You have your own bathroom. The staff was very very helpful whenever they could. Breakfast was very good as well for a hostel stay. 2nd time we have stayed there and will definitely stay again.

    I did really like that Gogartys is located smack dab in the middle of the "tourist district." However, the downside to sleeping in the touristy part of the city, is that is extremely loud. I also did genuinely find the beds comfortable, and slept well. It is a little less clean than I'd have liked, but overall serviceable; the toilets clog easily. There are also only 2 outlets for a room of 12 bunks. The staff is all really friendly and helpful! I did enjoy my stay, and would recommend.

    Very Good

    Rooms and bathroom were clean and bright. Internet high speed everywhere highly appreciated. However, the self-cathering kitchen was a mess, fridge is too small and at the end of its useful life, cooking without ventilation so smells in the dining room. Breakfast was served by steps, first the toasts, then the eggs, then the cheese, lack of coffee...

    It is located at the heart of the nigh action, so don't expect it to be quiet. the main issue really was the beds. These are too small (even for normal height people) and with iron bars, so it is really really uncomfortable to sleep. The best thing is the location. The environment is not that good as the common areas are not big or good so nobody really used them during my 3 nights stay, so don't expect to make acquaintances there.

    Perfectly located if you’re wanting to be out and about around Temple Bar, but it gets quite loud at night due to the bar below. However if you’re looking for that kind of atmosphere then it is perfect. Location was great for getting to several of the sight seeing locations as well as transit. The room and bathroom were not very clean, nothing to terrible but could have really used more frequent cleaning, just not very well kept. Staff was very friendly and helpful

    Great location, and good security locking away stuff, lockers under the bed which are under the beds, the Dublin is also a great fulfilled city, that's where the positives end! I found the staff were not the friendliest and to top that I played €51 to stay in a hostel with absolute unhygienic toilets and uncomfortable beds. Perhaps better for groups, but even then I would not recommend this hostel!
