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!

    This was one of the last hostels we stayed at on our trip to Ireland and we had the most fun in it. The size of the room was great and it fit everyone very well. One bathroom and shower was hard to work around, but we did and enjoyed the stay

    We had a mixed 8 bed en-suite. It was nice to have a private bath in our room. The building is very old and there were only two outlets for the whole room so charging electronics was difficult. Our room had some guests who were staying for work and went to bed/got up very early which was inconvenient for those of us who wanted to go out to the nearby bars. The location could not be better! Additionally, we really enjoyed the breakfast in the morning which was nicer than expected.

    Soup available in the evenings which was a nice touch. Stove didnt really work though. Staff was very friendly and beds were clean and comfortable. If you expect to sleep bring ear plugs. Large number or people in room that are coming in late from partying. Also its right near party district so you can hear drunk people at all hours. That being said its nice and close to the downtown core so if your there for the pub scene its very convenient.

    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.

    Stayed here for one night, and left the next day. Very loud, this is a flop place for partiers. Which is fine if that's what you want. Very few outlets one window available through one guys bed. Shower was rough to fine a nice point between freezing and scalding. Bed and pillows were thin. No privacy on the bunk, so no curtains or anything. Also ALL the doors slam.

    The security isn’t good- they have crates under your bed for storing your stuff but there is no place to put a luggage lock. Also, the crates make a TERRIBLE screeching noise when you open, waking everyone up. Also, it is in the Temple Bar area so it’s inevitably going to be very loud at night fyi.

    The room where I was staying had no ventilation or window that opened properly.I have stayed in countless hostels across Ireland and this one was by far the worst.Staff were very kind however whoever owns the property which is also a bar really needs get renovate the place.You can’t fit 10 people in a dorm with no air conditioning and a window that does not open.This is in March.I can only imagine the horror in summer when there is sweltering heat.
