Barnacles Hostel Dublin Reviews
Great stay in the heart of Temple Bar, Dublin Jan 22, 2015
This hostel is centrally located and very easy to get to from Dublin's airport via Airlink 747 Bus. Barnacle's is in the heart of Temple Bar, on Temple Lane. You will find this hostel down a quaint cobblestone alley way next to the famous Temple Bar, you can't miss Barnacle's bright neon green and blue exterior. The hostel is secured by key card access and the staff is there for you 24/7.
Barnacle's offers free breakfast, free wifi in all rooms and a free walking tour of the city. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. They will also help arrange any tours you may like to do such as Galway, Cliffs of Moher, Giant's Causeway etc. at a reasonable price. I highly recommend doing a tour and I'll explain that in a separate review.
I spent 3 days at this hostel, specifically in a 6-person dorm. It can get a bit cramped inside but hey you're in a hostel not a hotel, it's kind of expected right? The shower is ensuite which was quite nice. The cleaning staff was always working hard to make sure our stay was enjoyable.
I can not rate this place highly enough. Service and quality definitely put a smile on my face and that's what will have me coming back again and again.
