"Ireland's best hostel (IMHO)" The Sugan Hostel Tip by thomsonian

The Sugan Hostel, Killarney: 108 reviews and 1 photos

I stayed here for three nights in early-April 2006 and had a blast. Sugan is a small hostel in an old house, right in central Killarney near the bus station. I walked in without a reservation and Dave was very helpful and friendly in getting me set up and explaining what to see and do around Killarney and the Ring of Kerry. The main floor was very cozy, with wooden walls, a fireplace, and a small group of people staying in the hostel--all made for a very friendly atmosphere. The upstairs shared bedrooms were very nice, as were the bathrooms. A full kitchen downstairs.

Unique Qualities: -You can rent bikes. Dave also explained all the best music venues in town and how to best structure our sightseeing. A short walk from all the major sites in town and a short bikeride to Killarney National Park.
