Randy Leprechaun Hostel
Ranked #12 of 22 Speciality Lodging in Dingle
Reviewed 6 May 2012

As I stayed in this hostel as part of the Paddywagon 6 day Southern Ireland tour, I didn't really choose to stay at this hostel. But I must say, compared to other hostels on the tour, this was one of the better facilities.

Clean dorms, Various breakfast options (Toast, Cereal AND Muesli!!) Good shower temperature, friendly staff, adjoining pub.

The food in the adjoining pub could have been better, my burger bun was burnt, but my friends were quite happy with their meals.

Some extra tips:
There isnt much to see in the town, and no ATM. Make sure you take cash out before you leave Killarney if you are staying in this place as part of the Paddywagon tour.
The showers are electric and need to be switched on outside the entry to the bathroom.
The keys need a good hard wiggle before they work to open the doors!

We stayed at the B&B next to the Randy Leprechaun as part of the Deluxe Package with Paddy Wagon. Best B&B of the entire tour! Great room, beds, bathroom, breakfast, etc. The town is VERY small - but check out the "South Pole" pub - it was owned by a local that went to the south pole with Scott - great pictures and atmosphere.

We stayed at the Randy Leprechaun as part of our tour with Paddy wagon (southwest-best tour ever) but the hostel was below average. We had to stay in a room with one of the men who work there because there was not room left, there was hair in our sheets, but we could not complain as it was the only one in the area and it was part of the tour. There was a very nice pub attached to the hostel which served a great meal.

OK, this was the final stop on our Paddywagon tour of Ireland, and certainly the worst. Nothing in this place is very clean, there was one bathroom for about 20 of us, and mostly only cold water anyway. The staff were supremely unhelpful too. The food we ordered (and paid a lot for) in the evening was terrible, and I just got the feeling that they were only interested in what they could earn from us, not at all interetsed in making our stay better. Overall this is possibly a great place to stay if there's not a large tour group there at the same time, but it certainly would be better to avoid it if possible.

this hostel is located in the awesome little town of annascaul. breakfast is included in the price, they do dinners on request or there is a communal kitchen and living area. the staff are lovely and friendly. the only complaint i have is the shower in our room, which released about 5drops at a time. you get what you pay for though

If you're into 5 star resorts and you're a notorious complainer, skip it and spend 100 euro down the road.

But, for the location and price, this no frills hostel is a great place to stay while visiting the Dingle Pen. We stayed in a basic, double with a bath down the hall. Breakfast was included (toast, jam, etc...).

If you want to see Europe, save money and meet some awesome people, this place is for you.

the name should have said it all, tacky and brash and yet a friend persuaded me to join them there overnight, out of it I could not get fast enough. It's a pity ,because Annascaul is a lovely village..bu this is no addition to it
