The Hostel

Sky Backpackers is located just on the banks of the River Liffey, smack in the centre of the city. You'd be hard pressed to find somewhere closer to all the action! We're only a few minutes away from some of the most iconic sites of Dublin, such as Temple Bar, Trinity College, O'Connell Street and Grafton Street.

Fancy a drink? A brief 5 minute walk will find you in the constantly thriving Temple Bar district; with a seemingly endless choice of bars and pubs to choose from, you'll be sure to find something that fits the vibe you're looking for!

Wander a bit further out and lose yourself in the beauty of Trinity College, and for those history buffs out there, Dublin Castle and the Old Viking district are just a 10 minute jaunt from our door.

With plenty of public transport nearby, at Sky Backpackers all of Dublin is at your feet.
