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.

    Staying at this hostel was the best decision I made this whole trip! The staff were super kind and accommodating even when my credit card stopped working-- they let me pay a day later and I could stay in my room in the meantime. The room was clean and had a shower and sink in it.. the toilet was one floor above the room but that's fine, it was 20 euros a night! We also got a free bus tour that went to 2 towns in the country, one with historical significance, and it was BEAUTIFUL-- I rate 11/10

    7.5/10 - First hostel experience- Paddy's Palace was great. The best thing by far about Paddy's was the location. It is right in the heart of Dublin and walkable to almost any sights and pubs. The beds were clean and comfortable. The traffic outside was very loud, so if you are a light sleeper like me, bring earplugs. The front desk was wonderful. Do the bus tour if you can - it was great and included in our 3-night stay. Bathroom in room did smell, but upstairs toilet was private and clean.

    My stay at Paddys was okay, but not great! Got woken up many times during the night by lots of drunk people on the corridor, traffic on the street was really loud as well. no wifi in the rooms generally (and near reception where it’s supposed to work it didn’t work either). Breakfast was oats or toast with jam, very basic. Only good thing was that the woman at the reception was very helpful and booked me into an all female dorm because I would have been with 1 guy on my own.

    The doors did not lock, the heater did not work so it was super cold in the room. The walls were super thin so we could hear people talking the whole night, not making one feel safe without being able to lock the doors. The staff was nice enough, so no complain there, but would not go there again.

    Common room is reception with 11pm close. Kitchen is filthy. Very few showers and most are out of order. Easily the worst hostel in Ireland.
