  • Fergus was very nice and informative. The hostel is located near the city centre and is definitely worth the money. The WiFi was really good!

  • Awesome small hostel. Social friendly atmosphere, great kitchen, TV/lounge room. Rooms are small but clean and beds are comfortable. Great value. 5 mins walk from town. Ideal for solo travellers or pairs/couples, not a party hostel but great homey atmosphere

  • We accidentally booked the wrong night, but when we arrived the staff were incredibly accommodating and just fit us in. We got lucky, however, because we got the beds with mattress toppers, and the other ones didn't look half as soft. One of the best sleeps we had during our 10-day trip though. it was great :D

  • Our stay at Macgabhainns Backpackers Hostel was pretty good. The staff is very kind and helpful in every way and the hostel is very close to the city centre (really around the corner). The only parking nearby is some 100 mt. from the hostel, 2€ per day: we found it by chance driving the streets around the hostel. If you're visiting Kilkenny this is the hostel where to stay! Very suggested.
