Beach Haven Hostel is a cosy and inviting family-run hostel close to everything in Tramore and Waterford City. The hostel is right in the heart of it all just steps from the beach and the town centre of one of Ireland's most delightful seaside resorts just seven miles south of Waterford City.
Your gracious hosts, Niamh and Avery, pride themselves in providing a friendly and completely relaxed atmosphere in your home away from home. The hostel features a self-catering kitchen, free Wi-Fi, laundry facilities, a comfy TV lounge, outdoor patio with barbecue and stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean!
Tramore is an exciting and fun seaside town with an amusement park, a variety of restaurants and a pulsating nightlife. Try fishing, cycling, horse riding or hiking nearby. The town is situated along the famous South East Coastal Drive which gives way to some of Ireland’s most spectacular scenery. It’s also just a 20-minute drive from Waterford City where you can visit Waterford Crystal and experience some of the city’s festivals.
What travellers think
The main problem was the description of the location: according to the map on https://www.hihostels.com/hostels/beach-haven-co-waterford-yha/location (where we booked from) the hostel is more than 2 km further north, outside the town. We used these coordinates to find the hostel and ended up on a private estate. Luckily a neighbour knew where the hostel was and guided us. The wrong coordinates should really be fixed soon. The hostel was really nice, though Tramore as a town unfortunately isn't.
