In 2012 we fully renovated our property with new showers & modern kitchen. We also carefully restored the most popular feature of our hostel - the glorious 'common room', which boasts a welcoming fireplace, a grand piano and the most comfortable sofas in the country! A Perfect chill-out zone for individuals & groups.

Our lovely hostel was founded 10 years ago by 2 of Ireland's best-known backpackers: - Steve McPhilemy & Charlie O'Connell.
Steve has organized walking tours of our historic city-walls since 1996 and Charlie founded Paddywagon tours after driving safaris in South Africa. We take great pride in ensuring our guests have an excellent experience.
We have lots of FREE parking and are only a 5-10 minutes walk or a 2-minute taxi-ride from the Bus-Station, we are adjacent to the Police Station and literally round the corner from all the main shops, pubs & restaurants.
At our hostel we want you to love our city as much as we do.
