TripAdvisor won't let me enter anything earlier than June of last year, but I was actually here in March of 2016. I had a great stay (just one night) and they had free cereal in the morning for everyone to eat. The guy running it was very nice and there was a very cute dog to pet as well. The...

I stayed here for a few days over the Easter break, and what an amazing place it was! Dave (the owner) was the most friendly, welcoming, good humoured host who went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. My sister and I had booked a room which (little did we know) had a chain smoker who was also staying...

I have been bringing groups of student to this hostel for quite a few years now. It is a nice hostel, very friendly service, great cooking facilities and breakfast. There have been improvements and refurbishments for 2017. We had a very enjoyable night again this year - all 21 of us!

Stayed here in March 2017, we had one person who couldn't make it on the trip and we told them when we arrived and they didn't charge us which I thought was very reasonable. 2 min walk to the ferry and very close to everything. This hostel is basic, no frills but very clean and staff are lovely with a...

Generous staff, super friendly, YOU DON'T NEED DIRECTIONS TO IT BECAUSE IT IS RIGHT OFF THE BOAT. You just walk off the boat and BOOM there it is. You'll love it. They are full of resources, and kindness, and sweetness, and my bed was lovely, and I simply had a truly remarkable time. Thank you, Kilronan <3
