This hostel has to be seen to be believed - defo the best I have ever stayed in and describing it as a 'hostel' does not do it justice. Sauna, Lounge (with Sky Sports and a fireplace!), comfy beds, great showers, great kitchen, super hosts... I could go on. Set up perfectly for biking with secure lock up, bike washing facilities and a drying room but also perfect for anyone that fancies a walk in the hills. Defo going back in a few weeks.

- Ballyhoura Luxury Hostel is nestled in the Ballyhoura Mountains at the foot of the Galtees.

The Cliffs of Moher, Bunratty castle, The Rock of Cashel, Lough Gur, Cork and Limerick cities and many other places of interest are within short driving distances. Our Luxury hostel offers the height of comfort with hotel grade mattresses on solid hardwood beds, all dressed with 100% Egyptian cotton linen. Numerous high powered showers and a sauna give you the opportunity to really relax after a day exploring the area or after being engaged in one of the numerous activities on our doorstep. The immediate area offers many different hikes/mountain walks, mountain biking, horse-riding, claypigeon/air rifle shooting, archery, indoor wall climbing, abseiling and kayaking/canoeing. As we are in such an activity hub, the hostel has been purposely built to meet the needs of the outdoor pursuits enthusiasts with bike lock up, bike wash area, purpose built drying room and of course the sauna. Many weary travellers enjoy relaxing by our big open fire on our large comfy couches reading a book, watching T.V., or simply unwinding to the sound of the crackle of the fire. Those who are less weary and more energetic always enjoy an evening in one of our many pubs, where the locals are friendly and the pints are flowing. ... more less
