ABOUT Abigail’s Hostel


Right in the middle of Dublin’s city centre, Abigails Hostel is a home away from home. We welcome travellers of all ages to stay with us in the best location in town. And that’s no exaggeration – we’re seconds away from Trinity College, Temple Bar and O’Connell Street. We’ll give you an Irish welcome with our free breakfast, free Wi-Fi and storage lockers in every room. Feeling sociable? Our kitchen-diner makes the perfect morning-after meeting spot for new mates.


If you’re flying into Dublin Airport, take the bus: the stop is on O’Connell Bridge. We’re next to the river with bars and restaurants all around. The most famous drinking den, Temple Bar, is a 3-minute walk away. For a traditional taste of Guinness, jump on the number 21 bus from College Green for the Guinness Storehouse. St Patrick’s Cathedral and Dublin Castle are both less than 20-minutes’ wander away.

Rooms and Dorms

If you’re coming as a pair, a private twin gives you extra peace and quiet. Groups can make themselves at home in our comfy mixed and female-only dorms. They’re all en-suite, with linen included – everything you need to wake up fresh as a daisy. Forgotten your towel? No problem, you can rent one for €1. And feel free to make the most of the tea and coffee-making facilities or grab a snack from the vending machines.

Extras and activities

Wander the cobbled streets with our free guided walking tours – we’ll show you all the best spots to eat, drink and be merry – or pick up a free city map and go it alone. Either way, our handy lifts will save your legs once you’re back at the hostel. Our reception is open 24/7, so no worries if you roll in late. Keen to save cash? Cook up the treats you bought at Temple Bar Market in our self-catering kitchen. If you’re travelling as a group, we’ll offer the leader a free place. How’s that for Irish hospitality?
