    My second time to stay, and it didn't disappoint. In fact it was lovely to be served breakfast. We had the pleasure of staying in the self contained units out back. We were a family unit, and were well catered for. We were offered every help with the baby. We will be back again, there's a lovely atmosphere still at The Sive, even with strict adherence to covid regulations

    One of our best hostels ever. so lovely and it feels like coming into someones home. Mary was just the nicest person, and funny to talk to. then comes the breakfast, which you get cooked when you come down, a better start to the day is hard to get. will come back just for the welcoming feeling you get when you are there

    I really enjoyed my stay at Sive Hostel in Cahersiveen! While it is nothing overly fancy, it is very cozy and casual and the staff are so nice. Mary cooks breakfast for the guests every morning and I really enjoyed chatting with her over porridge, eggs, and toast. They were very accommodating when my travel plans changed and I requested to come back for an extra night and stay in a girls-only dorm. The first few nights I stayed in a private room which was quiet and felt safe and secure.

    My private ensuite room was in a tiny stone building in the garden behind the main house, with just enough space to walk around the very comfortable double bed: great for a solo traveller or for two folks happy to be in close quarters. Folks in the room above me were dancing with elephants for two of my three night stay, so bring earplugs if you use 'em? Staff and owners were all friendly and fried eggs for breakfast (included in the rate) was a treat. Kitchen access was very welcome :-)
