Lonely Planet review
Inside an ivy-covered 1770s Georgian town house, this fairly standard, 60-bed IHH hostel has a sitting room warmed by an open fireplace, and a timber- and leadlight-panelled dining room adjoining the self-catering kitchen. Excellent location.
Our independent authors have visited Kilkenny Tourist Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Kilkenny City.

Lonely Planet says:
'In a rambling 1770s Georgian townhouse, this wonderful independent hostel has a charming, cosy sitting room warmed by a glowing open fireplace, and a timber- and leadlight-panelled dining room. There's a decent self-catering kitchen and staff are ace.
An excellent notice board lists gigs and events around town as well as info about tours. The staff also chalk up the best cheap eats and places for a pint on a blackboard in the reception area'
