Paddy's Palace Hostel

Paddy's Palace is the award winning Derry Central Hostel. Recommended by Rick Steves and Lonely Planet.

Founder Steve McPhilemy offers 28 beds and lovingly provides a safe, clean and charming zone. We provide four and six bed dormitories (several with private shower/toilet). There is a modern, fully equipped kitchen and a lovely reading and TV room with a roaring fireplace in winter. Day trips to Belfast and Giant's Causeway can be arranged along with walking tours of our beloved walled city.

A fine breakfast is included free with each stay in the hostel. We have a tranquil walled garden and a cosy barbecue patio which is covered and has comfy sofas, this is where our guests chill with other international travellers.

We also provide the use of laundry facilities, free super fast WiFi internet access, safe lockers and vital parking facilities.
