Stayed at the vagabond with a couple of my friends. We were on a mountain biking holiday and we found the vagabond bunkhouse a brilliant place to stay, with very friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. The rooms were very clean and tidy. Wash facilities, also very clean and always a hot shower to come back to after the days biking. Great secure lockup for the bikes and nice off road parking too. We found the staff great and good craic too. Would recommend the vagabond very highly and will deffinitely be back for another biking trip.

“Confessions of a bunk house virgin”

This was my first experience of bunk house accommodation. The bottom line is that for two nights, one dinner and two breakfasts the bill was £60, great value. Against that, we were 6 to the room, there are no ensuite facilities etc, etc.
However, what do you do get is a very sociable bunch of people, good storage for your mountain bike, the use of a pressure washer and a very capable manager, Mark who you feel has seen it all and went out of his way to be helpful. A good breakfast too.
It might be an idea to have an information folder in each room setting out how it all works, for example, that the breakfast choice is either cereal and toast or the cooked breakfast;; I cheerfully helped myself to both, I hope that the spend in the bar made up for that.
