Ballyhoura Luxury Hostel Reviews from the Web

Liked: Ballyhoura Hostel was amazing. I had originally booked one night and that's all it took for me to fall in love with the place and book the remaining of my trip there, just about two weeks total. Don't let the word Hostel scare you or skew your impression of the place. It's called a "luxury hostel" for a reason and it won't disappoint, and the best part is that you're getting luxury for hostel prices! Beautiful rooms with amazing comfy beds, high pressure showers, large lounge with fireplace, beautiful dining room and fully stocked kitchen, sauna, large car park, designated drying room for any wet clothing, and loads and loads of activities to do in the area. You won't get bored. The staff, Seamus and Teresa, are two of the kindest people I've met. Both Seamus and Teresa are there to answer any and all questions you have. They truly know the area and you know you can trust their advice. They also have animals there (living outside of the hostel) two of the sweetest dogs, Sprocket and Axel and a very friendly cat, Murphy. The best part about this hostel is that the front portion was actually Seamus's childhood home that he remodeled and he built the rest from the ground up. He's a carpenter by trade and you can clearly see and feel how proud he is of this amazing place, and he should be!This hostel deserves to be recognized as one of the best in Ireland if not the BEST in Ireland. When you're in the area give Seamus a call and book your next accommodations, I promise you won't be disappointed! Didn't like: Nothing.
