Backpacking Dungarvan

There is a few things you should know about Dungarvan hostels and the city in general. Besides comparing you the best and cheapest hostels in Dungarvan, we also highlight what we have liked, disliked and things to look out for.

If you’re doing a road trip along the coast of Ireland, Dungarvan -- a town between Waterford and Cork -- is a great place to stop and spend some time. Dungarvan is a large city, but it's not too busy or overrun with tourists, even in the summer. Public transportation is also convenient for this area -- buses run every so often from Cork and Waterford. The town is actually divided into two sections by the Colligan River, but they are connected by a causeway.

There is a fair-sized shopping center in town, so you’ll probably be able to find anything you might need here, including a post office, ATMs, internet cafés, and grocery stores. If you’re on a budget, this isn’t a bad place to stop for the night at a Dungarvan hostel.

There are plenty of sights to check out in the city. Visit the Dungarven Castle to see the long and tumultuous history of Ireland. Take a walk along the bay for some great photo opportunities (even on a gray and misty day, it is still beautiful!). There is a lighthouse and a church in town that are also points of interest. The Augustinian Priory (in Abbeyside, towards the east of the city) is mostly in ruins, but still quite magnificent, and for history buffs, probably fairly interesting.
Nightlife can get fairly lively, but don’t expect anything too crazy. There are several bars and pubs in the city. For a great night of live music, go to the Maritime Bar. If you’re into sports, the Parrish is probably the best place to stay updated on the latest sport games, as they have many large TV’s.
