Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

Great value and ideal location. Really welcoming and relaxed place,clean and comfortable, all needs catered for. Its right on the ring of Kerry and beside the Skellig Ring too. Ideally situated for exploring Kerry and 2mins walk to pubs and restaurants. Stunning beach down the road. Highly recommend.

I had a wonderful time at the Sleepy Camel. The host was very pleasant, the atmosphere friendly and open, the rooms, kitchen, living room etc. very clean. The wifi worked well and there were computers for those without laptops. I had my own room, with a view of the beach, and a sink in the room. A simple breakfast (and access to the kitchen's facilities) was included in the stay. I only stayed for one night, but I would return.
My only reserves are that the heater in my room did not work, which was too bad since I had hoped to dry my shoes after all the rain, and credit cards were not accepted.
Again, though, it was a lovely, comfortable stay, and a lucky find.

the rooms are perfectly fine for the price. The best part is the friendly and helpful owner and the fact that you can grab lots of food and free tea whenever you feel like having it. Lots of books and a comfy reading room make for a relaxed evening after long walking days. Will come back!

This place is a tremendous bargain. My wife and I's room had a private bath (my adult kids' did not) and the only difference between this hostel and the other B&Bs we stayed at was the simplicity of the decor and breakfast and the lower cost. The hosts were wonderful.

Room Tip: only some have a bathroom en suite

With two friends, I was walking the Kerry Way, when making a stopover in Glenbeigh. We decided to stay in The Sleepy Camel for two nights and it was the best decision. It was a clean, homey hostel with comfortable beds and a vast kitchen. The owner was greatly friendly and asked about our costitution a bunch of times. The best thing for me, after 3 days of walking, was the bathtub in one of the bathrooms. The only thing, we had to regret, was the disfunction of the heaters, so it was really cold all the time. But because of the great guest-friendship, the problem was fixed by a small gas heating.
We were more than happy with the hostel and would stay there for a second time, if we visit Glenbeigh again!

Really enjoyed the three days I spent in The Sleepy Camel. The service was great and owners very accommodating. The hostel is positioned perfectly in the centre of Glenbeigh with plenty of activities to do in the area and lots of lovely cosy pubs. Looking forward to returning again :-)

Room Tip: Was very lucky to get a double ensuite :-D
