The Hostel is open to groups all year round, and individuals from April 1st to October 31st. There are many natural walks in the area including the Kerry Way which passes just a mile from the hostel. There is also a state of the art sports hall adjoining the hostel making it ideal for school and youth groups. We also are situated within the core area of the Kerry International Dark Sky Reserve.

This beautiful part of South West Ireland is the perfect location for activity-based breaks. Together with our Activities Partners, our hostel is the ideal base from which to explore South Kerry’s rich heritage and experience many outdoor and water-based activities: from hillwalking to kayaking, from fishing to archaeology.
