Our Story

Our Story - Ballyhoura Hostel

Being a self-employed Builder/Carpenter based in and around Dublin for over 25 years, I had no choice but to come up with something different or emigrate after the downturn in 2008. While planning to travel abroad for work, I bought my old family home in Kilfinane, Co. Limerick which my parents had built in the early 60’s and reared their 7 children there .

I began returning home a lot more as our junior hurling team, Blackrock, won the All Ireland gold in 2009 and I found myself falling in love with the old village, it’s mountains and it’s people again. I decided to invest my future back in my home town and came up with the idea of a luxury hostel. Then I went about designing it and finally securing planning in May 2012. I then secured funding and started building in August 2013.

Thankfully with a lot of luck and help from good friends, family, neighbours, contractors and skilled workers, we opened our doors in June 2014. Even more thankfully, in July 2015 my wife Teresa, a farmer’s daughter from Sligo, working as a National School Teacher in Ballyfermot, moved down and now it’s just the two of us who run, work and live in Ballyhoura Luxury Hostel.
