Stayed here before an early triathlon and found it to be perfect for us, great value considering the breakfast (cereals, eggs, toast), Sky tv, cooking facilities, wifi etc. Everything was clean and tidy, and the host was very nice and accommodating. We would definitely stay again, many thanks

I really enjoyed my stay here. I found the owner amazing and helpful. She shared the history of the town as well as her own experiences in that history which really brought it alive. She was amazingly accommodating as well. It's a little walk outside of the town center but i feel that's what gave it it's charm. In a... More

At first I wasn't too keen on staying in another terraced house, however once inside and chatting to the Liam I realised it was different to others I'd been too. My partner and I stayed in room 6, on the top floor; the memory foam mattress gave the best sleep I've had in ages, and it was pretty quiet too.... More

Stayed here for an overnighter, was attending a music concert in The Millenium Forum Theatre nearby. Area is nice and quiet and there was ample on-street car parking. As I'd driven up from Dublin, I'd no cash on me, this venue doesn't accept cards so make sure and have the requisite cash to pay when you arrive as the first... More

This hostel made our trip. The stories he had to tell were amazing. Prime location just next to the bogside and the pubs. Wouldn't recommend anywhere else. You will definitely meet interesting people during your stay.

Such a cheap wee place to stay. Easy to access and such a comfy nights sleep. The owner is lovely and helpful Only downside, the room I stayed in didn't have a mirror and I was heading out that night, so it was a bit annoying Other than that, it was a nice wee place to stay :)

I found this hostel from being told by another hostel and glad I did as it has easy access storage for bicycles (I was cycling). The hostel is very clean and the beds comfortable. Shower and toilets are VG. Breakfast is what I would have at home so spot on. Lady on duty was friendly but clearly in charge and... More

Small place, more like a house than a youth hostel. 2 bathrooms (clean, one shower in each) for everyone means a line in the morning if you're not the first to get there. Small rooms but comfortable beds. Be careful, no credit card machine, have enough cash when you arrive (pounds or euros).
