Book for two nights or more at Paddy's Palace Dublin and we'll take you on a free bus tour to Glendalough, where Braveheart & PS I Love You were filmed. In our historic Georgian house, complete with a cosy common room, you'll also be treated to a free breakfast every morning, and can make use of our big kitchen to make your other meals. Our free Wi-Fi will help you research where to get Dublin's tastiest pint of Guinness (although we reckon it's at local icon The Celt, a couple of minutes' walk away).


We're across the road from Customs House, one of Dublin's most striking old buildings, and just a minute's stroll down the street from the central bus station, Busáras. A bus from Dublin Airport will drop you off here after a half-hour trip, or you can message us to find out about airport transfers if you'd rather have a lift. Heading out for a night on the town? Famous Temple Bar – the city's buzzing nightlife area – is less than 15 minutes' walk away.

Rooms and Dorms

Paddy's Palace Dublin has private rooms and dorms with shared bathrooms or en-suites. You'll have a free security locker to stuff your backpack in and free linen (so you won't have to part with any extra euros). If you'd rather stay in a dorm with other women, we have female-only spaces as well as mixed options.

Extras and activities

We're Irish-owned and run, so we're definitely in the know about some of best Dublin's secret spots. We've got free walking tours to get involved in if you're looking to tick off the main sights, too. While you're out lapping up the culture, your belongings will be safe thanks to our 24-hour security. There'll also be someone on reception day and night if you need a hand with anything.

    Overall good experience but a few hiccups. Wifi was down which meant it was difficult to locate where to go. Luggage room in reception was under refurbishment yet we were not informed before arrival and had no secure place to leave luggage. It was left in the reception and it wasn’t particularly secure. Other than that it was what we expected and would recommend purely on the location of the hostel. Relatively central and easy access to the Luas and over the river.

    Unfortunately the room was close to the front door which meant that you can hear and feel the bang of the front door whenever it was used. For one night this hostel is a good option but for more days it would become very uncomfortable. The security at night is perfect. One of the attendants certainly gave me a sense of safety in the early hours of the morning.

    arrived late due to evening flight delay, was nice to be able to check in at 1am. however, luggage storage is locked overnight and night staff doesn't have access so couldnt store my massive suitcase, had to drag it into my dorm room in the middle of the night. free breakfast was very basic- bread, butter, jam, cereal, milk. no juice. wifi didn't reach room, no lockers in my dorm. 7ish minute walk to o'connell st is nice though! prob wouldn't stay again unless desperate- there are better options

    Location good, but didn't feel too safe, and this hostel invites the wrong type in my view. Need to keep ringing the bell which is a pain in the arse, and there is no locker or wardrobe in the rooms.

    Staff was friendly but the whole place needs an overhaul. We have never stayed at a hostel before and were extremely disappointed with the condition of the place. The room was a private room but so small you could hardly turn around in it. The location for the one night was what we wanted but we were disappointed with this hostel. No wifi in the rooms although the wifi in the common area was fine.

    Everything seems to be broken... the door to the dorms, you have to ask staff to open it to you _every_ _single_ _time_. The wifi is broken and ''nothing can be done about it''. Charging stations for phones were broken and several power outlets wouldn't work. There are no security lockers on rooms. There is a luggage room and a chest of lockers next to the reception, but I had to fight to get one. also, a lot of long-term residents lingering around. Staff is great though. Wouldn't recommend.
