Dublin International Hostel is the only hostel part of Hostelling International and is unique in that it is within the grounds and surrounds of what once was the St Josephs Convent School established over 150 years ago. Home then to students from the area for the past 75 years we now look after a mix of international students, families and individuals. Plan your day over a free breakfast in the Chapel, Play a game of pool with new friends. Make dinner in the self catering kitchen and sit out in the picnic area. Park your car free of charge off the street in our own car park, however long you wish to stay we can do our best to look after you.

Families with small children under the age of 16 years must book private rooms
Our hostel has a NO Smoking policy
