Although its 234 beds doesn’t make it the biggest hostel around, the Four Courts Hostel feels like an industrial-size place. It ticks every box in the hostel category: murals, subterranean lounge, talkative pony-tailed owners, lively shared kitchen, rooms with huge numbers of bunk beds.

Rooms at the Four Courts are more attractive than those in your average huge hostel. We liked the cool light-blue walls and striking hardwood floors. We also appreciated the presence of a desk in one dorm room. Rooms span several configurations, from singles to 16-bed dorms. Most have private bathrooms.

The Four Courts offers a free barbecue every Thursday evening, as well as an organized nightly pub crawl. There is also an entertainment library of sorts, with DVDs and a Wii available for use, along with Foos Ball and pool tables. And its location, a short walk from Temple Bar, facing the River Liffy is pretty action-central too.

Wi-Fi is free, as are international telephone calls. The shared Internet station is free for the first half hour. Breakfast is included in the room rate.

About the The Four Courts Hostel neighborhood

Located south of the Liffey, the historic area around Christ Church Cathedral is marked by cobblestoned streets and, um, Christ Church Cathedral, one of Dublin’s top tourist draws. The church's finely manicured grounds attract lounging locals and tourists alike. Just around the corner is Dublin Castle, and the Guinness Brewery (a house of worship to some) is a little further west along the river.
