Now, some people might be dissuaded from staying in a hostel, however, this place is a world apart from the 20+ person dorms you tend to get in capital cities.

Firstly, there are plenty of private rooms, secondly, the maximum dorm capacity is 4 persons (great for two couples), thirdly, it’s the only lodging right next to the seafront (only 100m to Strandhill Beach).

There are also loads of private rooms here, which are cheaper than a hotel. The hostel also runs as a surf school, with fully certified instructors ready to show you the ropes(or waves rather). 

If you’re in search of accommodation in Strandhill a stone’s throw from the water, you can’t go wrong with Strandhill Lodge.
