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!!!

Gogarty's Hostel is group-friendly and if we can't fit you into our hostel we have self-catering apartments, too, which are perfect for any group!

    The atmosphere here was great, compared to other hostels I've stayed in. Perhaps it is because I am a native English speaker and so it was easy to meet people. Everyone I stayed with was friendly and social - maybe that's lucky. The room gets warm, and there weren't enough lockers (bring your own lock!) or outlets for power for everyone to use at the same time but it was ok. Staff was helpful and both breakfast and kitchen use are included. Temple Bar is a GREAT location for a short stay.

    I enjoyed my stay here but It was a last minute decision to book this hostel. It is located right above a bar so it was a little noisy towards the ends of the night. The people in my hostel were all very loud and came home slamming things at different hours of the night. I prefer a more quiet hostel. But, The staff were very nice and helpful. The breakfast was probably the best part! If you’re looking for a hostel next to the bars this is for you.

    Great bar downstairs and location. Rooms were pretty plain, shower had 0 water pressure, and temperature was not consistent. Staff were nice and helpful. Would probably stay else where if I go back to Dublin.

    Great location if you’re looking to spend most of your time outside the hostel! They do hold your stuff to go out and explore which was a plus. Nice staff and breakfast options. Downside is that the rooms and bathrooms were a little dirty.

    The location was excellent at this hostel. Unfortunately the room we occupied had no fans or air conditioning and the only window available was in the courtyard of a bar where people partied until 2 AM every night. While the beds and sheets were clean, the floors shower and bathroom were not. While there were signs about security cameras, no one checked the people coming in and out of the hostel and thus some drunk visitors came to our room. The staff were respectful but not friendly.

    This was a dirty, loud and poorly appointed hostel. Might be ok if you want to party but was the worst experience I've had in a hostel in Europe.

    Worst hostel I've ever stayed in which is saying a lot. The hostel is excessively dirty- not your normal this-is-a-hostel dirty, but outright don't-let-anything-touch-the-ground. The shower has layers of grime on it and doesn't regulate the temperature. For my entire stay (4 days), not only was my room not cleaned but also the general bathrooms were not cleaned as well. Additionally, the staff were rude and unhelpful even for general advice and the atmosphere sucks with 0 planned events.
