Welcome to our hostel

What’s there not to like about this hostel in Killarney?

Shortlisted as a ‘Favourite Irish Hostel’ (as voted for by readers of TNT Magazine) our hostel is housed in an 18th century mansion and is set in 75 acres of gardens and forest overlooking the mountains surrounding Killarney National Park in Co. Kerry.
This is a particularly popular destination for groups who are looking to sample some of the unspoilt countryside in this part of southern Ireland.

The hostel staff are happy to organise tailor-made itineraries for groups which include the Ring of Kerry Tour - a scenic bus tour around the famous Ring of Kerry on the Iveragh Peninsula. The bus picks up and drops off right outside the hostel. Or if you prefer to discover the rugged coastline of the Atlantic, take the Dingle and Slea Head tour. Again there is a pick up and drop off at the hostel for this excursion.

Also, if you’re interested in birds of prey – you can now do a ‘Hawk Walk’ – just ask at reception for details! Or if you prefer something a little more challenging, then pick up some free maps for the Kerry Walk, which starts and ends in Killarney.

Groups looking for adventure can take advantage of some great organised activities by EcoAdventure Ireland who are based at the hostel. Activities include, pony trekking, paintball shooting gallery, mountain biking, trail riding, archery, team tasks, survival training, target shooting, low ropes and much more!

In short there is not much that a group can’t do in Killarney. Will you be visiting this Irish gem soon?
