Kilkenny Tourist Hostel

Due to Covid-19 the Hostel is currently closed. We will open again mid August and we look forward to seeing you then!

Kilkenny Tourist Hostel is located right in the centre of Kilkenny, in a lovely 300-year-old Georgian townhouse in the best preserved medieval city in Ireland. The Hostel is close to several noted attractions, less than 10 minutes walk (700 metres) from Kilkenny Castle and a few steps from Smithwick's Brewery Tour, the Black Abbey and Rothe House. Situated on Kilkenny's medieval mile it's also just minutes walk to Saint Canice's Cathedral and Round Tower, and to the Medieval Mile Museum.

Facilities include a great self catering kitchen and dining room where guests can cook and enjoy free tea and coffee. The cosy sitting room with an open turf fire is a great place to relax and meet other guests. There's also free WiFi, free lockers, free city maps, and a laundry service. Choose between Private Double, Twin, Triple and Quad Rooms, and small or large Dorm rooms all with shared bathroom facilities. 

The notice boards, custom designed city mural, and chalk boards provide guests with lots of information about Kilkenny so they can enjoy a unique local experience. Staff have insider tips on the best Irish food, traditional Irish music sessions, cheap eats, theatre, live music, movie nights, tours and all the hidden gems to enjoy in the city and surrounds. Plus every day the best events of the night are chalked up on the blackboard at Reception.
Kilkenny Tourist Hostel has a brilliant location, the friendliest staff and great guests from all over the world to mingle with.
