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!

    Nice breakfast in the morning, very clean, nice people staying there. I wish it was closer to the airport, but I suppose that's what you get for staying in Temple Bar. It's in a party district full of tourists -- if you like that, this is your place.

    Can't beat the location, and the facilities are better than other hostels I've stayed in. Only one outlet in our 10 person room which was less than ideal, but I'd definitely stay here again.

    Fantastic location, very convenient. It’s right in the middle of Temple Bar. Rooms are just what you need, beds bathrooms and plugs to charge your phone. Definitely recommend

    Great location with very helpful staff and very low cost. With that being said - I stayed in a 10 person room and wouldn't do it again. For starters, there were only 9 accessible storage lockers, meaning i had to just leave my belongings on my bed. On top of that, there was only 1 bathroom and 2 wall outlets for all 10 of us. It was very loud all night due to being right next to bars, so bring earplugs/headphones. Lastly, it was about 100 degrees in the room(at least) with no AC or fans.

    Unfortunately the electronic safes are not working. Make sure you take with you a strong padlock. Or you buy one of these from the fishing tackle shop just along from the hostel as you head further in to temple bar. The hostels location is fantastic and the staff are really friendly and helpful

    Very small bed. The check in is at 3PM, but it was written 2PM on Hostel World. When we arrived at 3PM, the room was not ready.

    It says they have a laundry, but they don’t. It says they have luggage storage but if it’s busy you can’t use it after check out. Those were the main two reasons I booked this hostel, so that was annoying to find out. The kitchen wasn’t very clean and it was small. The common room and dining room were nice and the free breakfast and soup was really good. The rooms were about what I expected for what I paid.

    Gogarty's accommodations are to be avoided like the plague. In fact, it would hardly be surprising if an outbreak of the plague was traced to Gogarty's. The first sight of the 'lobby' is all you need to see to know that anywhere else in Dublin would be a better place to stay. Unfortunately, that part of Temple Bar has grown hopelessly seedy and depressing, with drunks and drug addicts roaming around shouting and tweaking. Management makes you pay in full in advance --very smart of them. AVOID!
