Killarney and Kerry

Our hostel is perfectly located for visiting the nearby Killarney National Park and the world renowned Lakes of Killarney. We’re situated right beside the National Park, while the town’s bus and train station are located just eight minutes away on foot.

A former guesthouse, our hostel affords our guests an ideal starting point for exploring the 25,000 acres of the National Park, elegant 19th century Muckross House and Gardens, beautiful Ross Castle, and tranquil Torc Waterfall. Killarney is also home to the National Events Centre, which hosts major performers from Ireland and around the world, and the town is the gateway to the stunning Ring of Kerry. Many of our guests like to hire a bike as they explore the rugged mountains and glistening Lakes of Killarney during their stay.

Our staff will help you book tours of locations including the Dingle Peninsula and the Ring of Kerry. We’ll also be happy to help you arrange night time events and offer recommendations for traditional pubs, clubs, or concerts. Killarney is home to many fine pubs, most of which have traditional Irish music sessions regularly.

The hostel is a perfect spot for partying, listening to music, and perhaps some Irish dancing at the end of an exhilarating day exploring.
