We are two motorcycles and we found it on our way, we must say that we have been very lucky because it' s a very nice place, rooms are very cozy, kitchen not very big but comfortable and it' s very easy to get to know the other guests from all over the world. last but not least the owner Mrs Mary is very friendly.

My two daughters and I travelled the Ring of Kerry and stayed four nights in Sive Hostel. We were very happy there. The room was clean and the hostel is cosy and comfortable. Every afternoon when we arrived back from a wonderful day walking and exploring the beautiful area aroung Cahersiveen, we felt like coming home. We will return in the future, for sure! My daughters missed it after we had left, it was truly nice!

The stay in this hostel was the best in all of Ireland.
The location was very good, great rooms, the bathroom clean.
The kitchen was very good and I could even sprinkle fresh basil in my cooking. I still had not something like that in any hostel!
Value for money very well!
In the hostel were two very charming ladies, who were to be cuddled.
Pefekt stay!

We had a short but lovely stay at Sive Hostel in Caherciveen; we'd like to thank Miss Elizabeth for all her help and kindness supporting our itinery planning activity (Ireland is definetely one of the places you should visit at least once in your life!). I'd say Sive Hostel is an ideal stop for everyone who's trying to visit amazing Skellig Islands, even if you don't have a car (Elizabeth booked a private transport just to take us to Portmagee).

Last but not least, we finally could try some irish cheeses (mostly cheddar, but also well known Cashel Blue and Blue Stilton)... well, weren't bad, but onestly they cannot even be compared to italian gorgonzola! :)

Enjoy Ireland

We booked one night and ended up staying for 4. Really welcoming owners, the owner converted her family home into a hostel, but she keeps it as well as any family home I have ever visited. A real gem, more like a townhouse than a hostel and I Will definitely return to sive hostel.

Stayed here for bank holiday weekend while visiting ring of Kerry. Festival weekend so plenty to do in Cahirciveen and fun people around watching music. The hostel itself was clean and tidy and great value. The owners were friendly and helpful - couldn't have asked for more. Managed to visit skellig island aswell which was a real treat. Looking forward to coming back again!

Were lucky to stay in one of the two double rooms in à seperate building at the back, and though the room was tiny, it was clean and the velux window made it very bright.
We shared à bathroom with the other room, which was fine.
The common room is in the main building, there is everything You might need to cook and free bread, butter, jam and milk for breakfast.
They arrange trips to the skellig islands, we were picked up and dropped off on top of the cruise to the island for just 45€.
Our double room was only 40€, great price.
So basically dont be put off by their old website, this is à good and cheap address in cahersiveen!
