This hostel was brilliant! The main feature is the owners. They are so lovely, and understanding and will really try to help you out no matter what the problem is. My partner and I had a great chat with both of the owners and they told us some amazing stories. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathrooms are large...

Stayed at Castle Hostel for one night n a double bed ensuite room prior to starting walking the Dingle Way. I chose the Hostel as a budget option during an extended period of walking in the UK and Ireland. Even by budget hostel standards I thought the hostel fell short. The hostel is quite well located to the centre of...

The walls were so thin we could hear the person in the other room snoring. it was so loud it was like we were sleeping in the same room with him. The shower is weird and the water pressure is terrible. The bad was small and Uncomfortable. This hostel is highly unrecommended!

I had a great experience at this hostel!! Close to both Dingle and Ring of Kerry, this hostel must be checked out. The place is very clean and everything you might need is within walking distance (grocery shops, pubs, coffee shops and the bus station). The staff are super friendly and I really enjoyed hanging out with them and other...

I am just back from a stay in Tralee and due to the Listowel Races I was unable to find a hotel for a reasonable price. For that reason myself and my girlfriend booked into the Castle Hostel. We went with a double room which had all of the basics, bed, tv, bedside lockers, bathroom with an electric shower. Everything...

Stayed in a 4 bed dorm with en-suite bathroom. The dorm room was well kept and very clean although very small. The bathroom was quite cramped too but at least it was en-suite. Good, free breakfast in the morning, which is always welcome. Wifi in the dorms - great. Owners and staff were really very pleasant and helpful. Ideal location...
