    Absolutely loved this hostel! The owner is the friendliest guy - full of great stories and fantastic travel tips for Mooncoin and beyond. The surroundings are stunning and the local pubs are full of fun. There's a comfortable communal area with lovely sofas and a nice table to sit around - it's really easy to meet people. The shower works on a 10 cents for 5 minutes system. A little inconvient if you have long hair to wash but I like the water-saving principle behind it. Will definitely return!

    The owner was super cheerful! We are traveling musicians so it was very nice to talk to him about his experience. The space was very clean and big:) I really liked the pup that hung out! We had a hard time accessing the WiFi, showers cost euro (so bring change) and the bunks didn’t have a privacy curtain, which I think I am particular about bc I am a female who travels with 6 guys. :D Over all very comfy, clean, and sweet.:)

    It is a little out of the way. Not very much though, only a 15 minute bus ride to get to town. It was all worth it though to meet Tom and his lovely family. His daughter was super excited to show me their 9 kittens. The rooms were really nice and all the people i met there were extremely nice.

    Loved Toms! Tom himself is by far the best host I’ve met. The place is lovely. It’s a wee bit off the beaten track, but worth the little walk. Pub down the road is quaint. Make sure to get Tom talking, he’s a lovely man, with loads of experience and stories to share! Would definitely stay here again!! Facilities are nice too!!

    Tom's Cottage is a nice place to sleep near Watterford. We were very well received by the guests (Tom and his family). They gave us tips for visiting and catering There is only one bathroom with one shower and one toilet. The shower is timed and cost about 10cents by 5min, but it was not a problem. You have to wait a lot in the morning to access the bathroom. By the way the bathroom is small and a little outdated. Tom you should renovate a bit the bathroom. For the rest, stay as you are
