Property Description

We love exploring exciting ways to change the journey, and we have big news - Clink i Lár is here – Dublin’s coolest backpacker hostel!
The phrase “I Lar” means ‘in the middle of’ in the Irish language, and Clink i Lár is true to its name. Our brand-new hostel is located right in the heart of Dublin city center, on the city’s historic Abbey Street.

Clink i Lár’s central location makes it easily accessible from all parts of Dublin. Express buses run every few minutes from Dublin Airport to O’Connell Street, just a 5-minute walk from Clink. Dublin Bus numbers 16 and 41 also operate from the airport and stop at O’Connell Street, for the more cost-conscious traveler.

Clink i Lár is specially designed for the modern backpacker, offering your very own private rooms and shared dormitories in a range of sizes. Every dorm bed at Clink i Lár has an LED light, a power outlet, a USB port, and a curtain for your privacy.

Our very own bar, WunderBAR, harmonizes the curiosities of travel with the romance of traditional Irish storytelling. It’s the perfect spot to taste that first drink in Ireland or get to know some of Dublin’s finest craft breweries.

Location was good, staff were friendly..! Nice rooms, but my sole issue was the fact my reading lamp and power sock didn’t work! As a student, sitting on the floor by the bathroom to charge my laptop while I work is incredibly frustrating! I asked reception if I could change beds in my dorm as no one was there, and they said it was fully booked - I’ve checked out and there was 2 free beds in the same room the whole time… and they fixed the problem for someone else but not me? Absolute Bullshit!
