The fantastic 46 bed Kerry hostel is located 8 miles from the small Beaufort town and perfectly situated for many off the beaten track activities. This corner of Ireland is truly breathtaking.

It is located on the Kerry Way and the Macgillycuddy Reeks and Carrauntoohill are both accessible from the hostel. The Macgillycuddy Reeks are the highest mountains in Ireland.

This 46 bedded hostel is a modern hostel with a TV room and self-catering kitchen. A shop is located on the back of the hostel where you can buy your supplies. Family rooms are also available and the manager can give you information on walking routes in the area.

Its stunning location makes this hostel ideal for any visitors looking to discover the natural beauty of Ireland. Horse riding is available at the nearby Gap of Dunloe and boating in the Upper Lakes of Killarney.
