Group-friendly Hostel in Central Dublin
Located right next to O'Connell Bridge, on the river Liffey's Northside, the Abbey Court Hostel provides groups with an excellent location, from which they can explore on foot all that Dublin's city centre has to offer. Temple Bar and O'Connell Street are just a stone's throw away from the hostel, as well as the shopping district of Grafton Street and most attractions. Bus and train stations are easily reached on foot from here as well.
Guests love the colourful wall art all around the hostel, from the reception area to the corridors and the lounge rooms. Groups will have access to free Wi-Fi, breakfast and bed linen as well as the hostel's other facilities, including TV lounge, fantastic games room equipped with pool table, table tennis, play station, vending machines, table football plus plenty of chill out space.
Rooms at the Abbey Court Hostel are available both as ensuite (toilets and showers inside the rooms) or standard (toilets and shower located outside of the rooms).
The hostel consists of a main and annex building. Generally groups are split between the two buildings based on the room types chosen at the time of booking. The buildings are located beside each other. Breakfast is served in the main building so guests staying in the annex will need to walk directly next door to have breakfast.
