The Sleepy Camel was extremely comfortable. Stay was for 11 days. So i can say first hand that i have a good insight into it. First time in years i slept for a full night. Staff were incredibly friendly and very helpful. Facilities are excellent and will be back again without hesitation. I couldn't fault it and was in a...

Pleasantly small and friendly hostel. Good kitchen facilities if you want to cook. Very accommodating staff - the girl in charge printed out the boarding passes for our return flight, which had been a worry. Loads of space in the very pleasant lounge. Basic but very nice place to stay.

Beautiful setting, kind and professional staff, and lovely amenities. Due to some confusion before I arrived, my booking online went through but when I got into town late that night all the rooms had been filled - some sort of system error on Booking.com. The owner and his staff were incredibly understanding, kind, and concerned. After calling all the guests...

They were very friendly and pleasant. Lovely place to stay for a reasonable price. It around a lovely little small town, very good for a quite walk. It's not far from a beach to have a walk along. The other guests were also very friendly. I would reccomend anyone to stay here.

Lovely welcoming staff, I really could not give them enough praise. Very clean rooms & bathrooms, showers were powerful and lots of hot water at all times. Located in the centre of the village. Plenty of craic in the local pub 'ashas'

Although described as a hostel, what you get at the Sleepy Camel is far in advance of what is on offer at similarly described venues. Our en suite room was spotlessly clean with a comfortable double bed which we didn't have to make up or strip on arrival/departure, and the pleasant decor and furnishings were more akin to a small...

We stayed in the Sleepy Camel before and after doing the Glenbeigh Horseshoe walk (27km and 14 hours of walking). Excellent facilities and although only coffee and toast are available for breakfast we supplemented these with our own food. Would stay here again.

Great value and ideal location. Really welcoming and relaxed place,clean and comfortable, all needs catered for. Its right on the ring of Kerry and beside the Skellig Ring too. Ideally situated for exploring Kerry and 2mins walk to pubs and restaurants. Stunning beach down the road. Highly recommend.

I had a wonderful time at the Sleepy Camel. The host was very pleasant, the atmosphere friendly and open, the rooms, kitchen, living room etc. very clean. The wifi worked well and there were computers for those without laptops. I had my own room, with a view of the beach, and a sink in the room. A simple breakfast (and...

the rooms are perfectly fine for the price. The best part is the friendly and helpful owner and the fact that you can grab lots of food and free tea whenever you feel like having it. Lots of books and a comfy reading room make for a relaxed evening after long walking days. Will come back!
