“A great hostel!”
Reviewed 25 September 2005

Failte Hostel was great. It was inexpensive but beautifully kept. Our room was a spacious four bed room, en suite, but they charged only for a double, the total of which was less than for one person to stay at a B and B. There were great kitchen facilities, parking, and a lounge area. The hostel was a very short walk from the centre of Kinsale. The staff were friendly and helpful. Altogether great!
