MacGabhainn's Backpackers Hostel

We are a small hostel located in the heart of the city centre. We offer you a friendly welcome and comfort after your busy day of travel and exploration.

Out & About in Kilkenny

There is lots to do and see in the medieval city of Kilkenny. Experience the history of the castle and cathedral, get lost in the atmosphere of the Butter Slip and other winding alley ways. There are festivals for all seasons and interests throughout the year. 

What Our Guests Say

Good Place to Stay & Great Location

“It was a good hostel. Well mannered and helpful staff. We had all our requirements met. And location was perfect for us. The staff, the room and the ambience all met our expectations.”

Good Place to Spend a Night

“Great location. It’s nestled in-between the cathedral and a busy street lined with pubs and restaurants, and around the corner from a convenience store. There’s also cheap parking close by. Nice!”
