Hostels in Ireland for every budget
Forget the old image of hostels as bare rooms with creaky bunks and prison-like rules: The modern Irish hostel is a comfortable, cheerful accommodation option, and the only thing it has in common with its predecessors is that it remains an incredibly cheap place to stay. Whether you are in the middle of a round-the-world adventure, or you are travelling around Ireland with your family, tight budgets rule out regular stays in five-star hotels. But limited means should not limit your choice of accommodation, and a hostel in Ireland gives you plenty of options.
Many of the hostels you will find in central city locations are spacious, modern buildings with remarkably high-quality facilities. They may have their own bar and Internet cafe, and common rooms are likely to have the latest in TV and game technology. If you find these kind of hostels too impersonal, there are plenty of smaller establishments designed with you in mind, and the standard of accommodation is always exemplary, whatever the size. Sharing cooking facilities or travel stories over a drink in the evenings is a great way of connecting with people from all cultures and walks of life, making your Irish hostel experience even more memorable.
Browse our selection of hostels around Ireland to find the ones that best suit you, whether you are a party animal, a seasoned hiker, or an intrepid family. Your choice depends on your destination, of course, but a large part of your decision will be driven by your tastes and interests. So whether you are a night owl or a mountain goat, GoIreland has the hostel for you.
