The Hostel located between Kenmare and
Sneem, on the Ring of Kerry, Ireland.
Greenwood Hostel is a small, family run
hostel on the Ring of Kerry, 10 km west from
Kenmare. It is situated in the middle of the
countryside in a peaceful setting. The Kerry
Way, famous among walkers, passes the hostel
in a distance of only 200 m. It consists of
an old cottage, built around 1890, and an
extension, built in the 1960's. The then
owner wanted to have a look over the
beautiful Kenmare Bay while the trees around
the house were already quite high. So he
added a tower to the hostel which now offers
the guests magnificent views. Around the
hostel is a garden with many flowers and
mature trees. The orchard has nice places to
relax and enjoy the lush nature of Kerry. The
owners, Sabine and Torsten are looking
forward meeting you.
Greenwood Hostel has recently been awarded
"best country hostel in Ireland 2013" by
Irish Holiday Hostels.
