Positive Reviews

Great facilities at a great value.

Rates are very affordable at this hostel, and are ideal for backpackers or those on a tight budget. For the price guests get a remarkably clean room and plenty of onsite amenities.

Location is ideal for walking anywhere.

This accommodation is perfectly situated for exploring the area. Not only is it centrally located by the river in Ennis, but it makes an ideal spot for catching a train or heading up to the popular Cliffs of Moher.

Super friendly staff.

Plenty of great staff can be found at the Rowan Tree Hostel 24 hours a day. Guests report the staff members are very accommodating and are also a great source for local information and recommendations.

Negative Reviews

Beds are a problem for many people.

Some new beds would be a big help to many of the people who stay at the Rowan Tree Hostel. Reviewers state the furniture pieces are rock hard, while others complain they squeak too much. Regardless, most people will find them challenging to get a full night's sleep on.

Hostel is lacking in private parking.

There are no places for guests to park onsite at this hostel. This will force guests with their own vehicle to rely on public spaces, which can be hard to find depending on the time and day of the week.

Sounds have a tendency to carry.

Stays at the Rowan Tree Hostel can be noisy. This is because there isn't much to keep out sounds made by other guests, so when more rambunctious visitors have booked a room then it can be hard to get a lot of rest here.
