    This is a nice quiet place on the outskirts of Waterford. If you are on foot it's about €16.00 taxi ride from Waterford. Rooms and kitchen were clean. If you are looking for a change of scenery from the cities, this is it. Fields of cattle; dog and cats at the hostel and you can see the stars at night. Do bring food; you can buy a breakfast from Tom and one restraunt will deliver for free, but best to bring something to cook. If I ever get back to this area I will be staying here again.

    Lovely little cottage away from the city centre (perfect for us as we had a hire car. Use the directions provided, don’t rely on google maps). Hostel was clean and staff were friendly and very helpful. Only drawback was the bed... unfortunately, it probably the most uncomfortable bed in 6 weeks of travelling. Otherwise, we had a great stay! Thanks.

    Very satisfactory as a no-frills accomodation. I think there is no other hostel at Waterford or around(and the Cottage is not on Waterford's doorstep exactly) so I wld hav stayed here in any case. There is a bus service, with two buses passing Mooncoin, but nothing e g on Sun morn in to W until 11.25.
